If you are like us, you are trying your best to be as environmentally conscious as possible. Don’t get me wrong, we are definitely not a “perfect poster family” – but we are trying to do better!
ecostore were kind enough to send us a hamper of their products recently and I have to say we have since used everything and have even replaced some that ran out. The kids and I love the lip balm and the hand wash comes in a handy push pack so that you don’t use any more than you need. I love the laundry detergent – it smells divine and actually works on Tim’s stinky work clothes! Actually, all of the products smell so good!
ecostore is celebrating a key brand milestone at the moment, having sold 3 million bottles of their sustainable Carbon Capture™ packaging. To make this packaging, they converted 92% of their packaging to renewable plastic grown from the sugarcane plant (which is a safer alternative to petroleum based plastic). The revolutionary technology produces packaging that’s not only 100% recyclable, but that allows renewable crops to trap CO2 as they grow, storing CO2 in the plastic – hence “Carbon Capture™”. Since making the switch last year to Carbon Capture technology, ecostore have saved a staggering 1,556 tonnes of carbon dioxide compared to using regular plastic!

ecostore founder, Malcolm Rands is so passionate about the use of this technology, he’s made the Carbon Capture intellectual property available for any organisation to utilise in an effort to encourage FMCG giants to follow ecostore’s leading example. Wouldn’t it be great if all big businesses shared this amazing philosophy?
If that wasn’t enough, ecostore are also offering fundraisers an alternative to chocolate drives and raffle tickets. Good Soap for a Good Cause is a new program offering local communities a healthy alternative for raising funds for a cause of their choice. Given 1 in 4 Australian children are overweight or obese, ecostore aims to provide families and community groups with a healthier alternative to raising money for good causes without compromising on quality and choice.
The ecostore Good Soaps are available in both Lemongrass and Grapefruit & Mint varieties, and contain NO nasty chemicals like cocamidopropyl betaine (CAPB), propylene glycol or synthetic dyes, which are often, found in personal care products and have been linked to skin irritations. Good Soaps are proudly made in New Zealand, are cruelty and GE free.
ecostore offers support and guidance for community groups throughout their fundraising journey, with a SOAPport Kit containing tips on running a successful fundraiser, tally sheets to keep track, seller’s flyers and certificate template to recognise individual fundraisers hard work supplied to each fundraising team.
The soaps retail for $2.50 each, with $1.00 from each unit sold contributing to the fundraising team’s nominated cause.
So, if you would like to make a change, reduce your carbon footprint or do your bit to protect the environment for future generations- look out for ecostore products, give them a try and join them in their efforts to raise the bar for Australian industry standards.
