Since 1980 Ecover has been devoted to developing and producing effective and ecological washing and cleaning products made from plant-based and mineral ingredients. Ecover’s aim is to provide effective, sustainable washing and cleaning solutions that can be used daily by people all around the world. Ecover’s ecological principles extend far beyond the products they create. Ecover’s vision of sustainability takes ecological, economic and social aspects into account from the origins of the raw materials, to the complete biodegradation of the final products. Strict criteria are employed along the way as guidelines for all business operations, from selecting raw materials, through production methods to full decomposition of the end products. Ecover products are manufactured in the unique, world-famous ecological factories in Malle, Belgium and Boulogne-sur-mer, France. The factories are crowned with a green roof where plant vegetation grows creating a temperature regulating and noise-dampening insulator throughout the year. Ecover employees keep the factory’s energy consumption to a minimum and turn the lighting and heating on only when really necessary. Ecover employees are encouraged to travel to work by bicycle or car pool and receive a salary incentive for their efforts. Ecover is a company that operates with sustainability at its very core and has gained knowledge from years of experience that it is a feasible way to operate. Ecover is constantly innovating and pushing boundaries to create new and more effective products that have a minimum negative impact on the environment. Ecover has received awards and recognition on many occasions for its special contributions and achievements in the field of environmentally friendly, sustainable development. Among various recognition, perhaps the most prestigious was being named to the Global 500 Roll of Honour of the United Nations Environment Program, in 1993. Check out there Blog and facebook too!

I got this really cute package the other day. Wow I am a tote bag collector and this is one I don’t have. It has a pocket in the front, that is so cool. Its like a dream come true. Who knew that someone would make a front pocket tote bag. Great for holding paper or anything slim. This is one I know, no one will beat! Now to the dish soap! My first favorite thing is the bubble effect, with most dish soap your covered in bubbles. This dish soap does not have a million extra bubbles. The smell as well is really nice fresh smell. I love the Aloe Vera part thats a real nice change from all those other perfumery smelling ones. This company’s stuff is really green like and natural like which is nice with growing kids in the house. This package was well wrapped up and was a nice surprise to see the tote bag. Also the company is super nice!
