Ecoliving was set up by Jo, a working mum with two young children. She could see that the world is in the midst of a global climate crisis—one that is impossible to ignore. Having started with a reusable nappy network, Jo wanted to find other ways to reduce plastic use but could not find suitable products. With a firm belief that, no matter what you are looking for, there is almost always an option that is comparable in price, equal or better in quality – and that doesn’t come at the expense of others or our planet – she took action.
In 2014, Ecoliving was created to support small independent companies, like ours, that shared Jo’s vision of sustainable living and bring you products that are sustainable, effective and accessible to all. She was joined by her sister, Sarah, and they have a small team that encompass the family values that are at the core of their business.
Further, at Ecoliving, the Planet comes before Profit. Sustainability is at the core of what they do – from transparent and ethical sourcing, production, and distribution of products that truly deliver on social responsibility claims. In 2020 they achieved Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification and are currently working to achieve certified B Corporation status. Amongst other amazing projects, they have partnered up with Eden Reforestation Projects, a global initiative to reduce extreme poverty and restore healthy forests by employing local people to plant millions of trees every year.
It’s great to be able to work with them and to stock some of their amazing products!
