the eco-eco promise
At eco-eco we had an aim of instilling confidence in our customers that in buying an eco-eco product, they would be buying a product that has been responsibly and ecologically sourced whilst managing to retain the affordability.
We have called this the eco-eco promise and it is our pledge to you that we don’t just talk the talk when it come to all things eco, we do the do.
We don’t pretend that we are perfect at eco-eco and we are always striving to improve ourselves. However, there is an increasing amount of ‘greenwash’ in the marketplace, i.e. companies claiming to be ‘green’ solely as a marketing ploy, and the stationery market is no exception. Many mass-market stationery companies add a price premium onto their ‘green’ range and masquerade this range as eco-friendly, often sacrificing quality in the process. That’s why we think the eco-eco promise is so important to our customers, so they know where they stand when they buy our products. We’ve broken this down a bit more below:
eco-eco products will be made from environmentally responsible sources (traceable provenance)
all eco-eco packaging will be kept to a minimum and will be recyclable
eco-eco will partner with distribution couriers committed to reducing their carbon footprint
eco-eco will embed eco-friendly principles throughout every layer of the business (from the manufacturing to the staff kitchen!)
eco-eco will donate an annual percentage of profits to an ecologically responsible and/or socially responsible charity – as guided by our customers
we will publish all activity through the ‘profits through ethics scheme’ so that the public can make their own minds up about us.
we will explicitly state the ecological credentials of all products
all eco-eco products will be acid and lignin-free
eco-eco products will be made from 50% minimum recycled content
eco-eco products will have 100% recyclable credentials
product quality will never be compromised – eco-eco will guarantee like for like or superior quality over comparable non-eco products
we go above and beyond during our product development processes and include new design features in our product ranges wherever possible
we set our pricing at a really competitive level and we do not incorporate any product charge to cover the additional eco benefits that we offer. We encourage our suppliers to maintain this competitive pricing
