Suzanne and Nicola delighted with another Big Eco Show

About us

Founded in 2008, Daisy Green Media & Events launched their online platform on 9 October 2008 with a party that included their first ever “swishing event” and catwalk.

The website provided the ideal platform to showcase great ethical & locally made products, motivational stories and inspire like-minded women and the events took off in their own right! Five years on, tens of thousands of people visit the website each month and their social media reach is extensive.

The team's desire to support local businesses around the North East has seen them organise multiple events including their Handmade Markets and the business to business events the Big Eco Show and Show Your Mussel

On the national stage, the team have collaborated with other businesses to take Swishing to another level. From London to Leeds, Manchester to Newcastle, 1000s of women have swapped tens of 1000s of items of clothing and accessories giving them a new lease of life and saving them from landfill. And of course, any left overs are always donated to charity - nothing goes to waste

The team

Suzanne Whelan: Editor & Director

Suzanne's CV includes retail customer service, sales and recruitment. Suzanne worked alongside Daisy Green Events and her passion for the website, local businesses and meeting new people compliments her love of dressing up in 1950’s vintage! Back in 2001, she sought a career change and turned her hand to Health, Safety and Environmental management, is qualified with an MSc in Environmental Management and Health & Safety she has nine years field experience (very handy for our own events!).

Nicola Little: Founder

Nicola is an experienced sales, recruitment and events manager, who oddly enough loves speaking to large groups of people. In a former life she was a Special Educational Needs coordinator and “cheap shop shopper”. In May 2008 she saw the green light and the concept of Daisy Green Media & Events blossomed into reality. The opportunity to continually swap clothes for “new” was irresistible. She is passionate about the opportunities that Social Media bring and in March 2013 launched the communications agency We Are Sparkle.
