A Little About Us
Hello, my name is Matthew Greatorex and welcome to my new website. Ecoology is a small, family based business hailing from Mid-Wales. We sell affordable eco friendly alternatives to everyday products for you and your home. Earlier this year, my mother suggested the idea of Ecoology. She had been using these products for many years and recognised the demand and need for alternatives. We were both aware of the growing availability of easy, affordable changes available for the eco-conscious individual. Because of this, we created a platform to share these with the world. Read on for some information about what we do.
Our Pledge - 1% For The Planet
As a business concerned with environmental issues, it’s necessary that we devote as many resources as possible towards helping the planet. Therefore we are committing 1% of our gross sales towards environmental projects. We are currently in the process of becoming part of the 1% for the planet initiative. Until then, we will be committing 1% anyway.
Our Carbon Offsetting
Unfortunately, it’s impossible for us to have zero negative impact on the environment. However, we can try to offset this impact. Carbon offsetting means investing in clean energy and emissions reductions projects to counteract our negative environmental impact. To do this we calculate our deliveries mileage and mode (Train, car, plane), and energy use such as electric. Following this we use a carbon offsetting organisation such as Ecologi (We still haven’t decided on who to use). These organisations allow us to input our emissions information. As a result of this, we receive a monetary value to pay which when invested in emissions reductions projects will negate our impact. Of course, this is not the perfect solution, and we will always try reduce emissions before offsetting them.
Our Packaging is supplied by the BetterPackagingCo. . They provide us with fully home compostable packaging. In addition to this we also use paper tape and paper wrap. Where possible we reuse packaging materials. These include biodegradable bubble wrap, cardboard boxes and compostable shipping peanuts (Also disolvable in water). We collect these materials when we order from our eco suppliers.
More About BetterPackagingCo. Compost Packs
These alternatives to plastic satchels are made from plants, corn to be exact, with a man-made binding agent added for flexibility. The bags are re-usable and when you’ve finished using, just put in with your food scraps and garden waste, and before you know it, worms will be eating it for breakfast. Better for the environment, better for our oceans, a better tomorrow.
