Our EcoShop values

Less is more when thinking about what you use and buy. But if you are buying, it should be a conscious choice and, when possible, an ethical choice.

We pick our EcoShop products based on their impact – products which help the community and environment, not harm. All products we sell enable people to do one or more of the following:

Be energy smart

Be energy smartReduce your impact on the environment, cut down on power bills, and be healthier with a warm, dry home. Being energy efficient improves health too – studies show links between damp, cold houses and poor health.

Reduce your waste

Reduce wasteCut down what you send to landfill – reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle, or rot (let the worms eat it)! Invest in the tools you need to avoid waste to landfill. 

Buy ethically
