Eco Virtual Assistant Service supporting sustainable businesses

Hello there!

Hello there! I’m Maya Vertigans, the Founder and woman behind the eco virtual assistant business, Planner Bee VA Services. Having experience running my own sustainable gifting business, I understand the struggles of running a purpose-led business and trying to juggle benefiting the environment whilst also growing a successful business.

Stumbling from Ethical Product Business to Eco Virtual Assistant

In 2020, whilst running my own eco-friendly gifting business, I was keen to learn as much as possible and undertook courses and workshops on all aspects of business, from social media and SEO to content creation and email marketing. Over time, all of this learning combined with my love of writing and degree from the University of Edinburgh took me to the point where I stumbled into the VA world. I began helping other entrepreneurs to run their ethical businesses and reach their goals, as an eco Virtual Assistant, I just didn’t know that this was what I was doing yet. 

With my existing passion for protecting the planet, I realised that by supporting purpose-led businesses, I was able to help my clients create a greater environmental impact. In September 2021 I decided I wanted to grow to support more purpose-led businesses and officially launch my eco virtual assistant business, Planner Bee VA Services.

By 2030 climate change could be IRRIVERSIBLE! After watching Blue Planet, my eyes opened to the climate crisis and the fact that we are damaging our planet beyond repair, I felt compelled to do something to help. This passion for protecting the planet underpins everything we do at Planner Bee VA Services and we continually work to make our business as sustainable as possible, whilst also inspiring other businesses to operate in a planet-friendly manner.

For purpose-led businesses, we know how vital it is to bring somebody onto your team who shares your ethical ethos, like we do.  We can help you to grow and scale your business whilst keeping sustainability at its core, helping you to achieve both your environmental and financial goals.
