Ecover Update

Update on the survey in regards to Ecover products.

In December 2018, SC Johnson acquired Ecover. It is not a secret that SC Johnson do test on animals. But Ecover's own policy states that none of their products are tested on animals.

SC Johnson Statement differs as they do carry tests on animals as per countries regulations.

We did a online poll which the final question asked - if customers would change their buying habits based on the information available , 82.1% said yes. 
The survey in the shop it was 54%

Many comments made in the poll that customers were happy if there were alternatives available.

So we have decided in light of the results and customer comments to stop selling Ecover in the shop and online.
We will be in the process of replacing Ecover products with alternatives brands such as Bio D and Ecoleaf and other brands over the next few weeks. In many instances alternatives are available already.

This process may take a little time, as we sell our remaining Ecover Stock and source alternatives. We aim to ensure our household cleaning range will include any particular product customers may require.
All of our refillable products are already alternatives to Ecover.

 

We are conducting a poll from our valued customers to find out whether in light of what we know if we as a business should continue to support Ecover.

If you are unable to complete the form (Google account required) we do have forms in the shop as well.
