The Ecostore has proven its dedication to sustainability with the latest results in the Colmar Brunton Better Futures report. The eco company has been hailed as a leader in sustainability by consumers around New Zealand.
Use of renewable resources, care for the environment through business practice, and a focus on quality natural ingredients were among the reasons people thought of brands as sustainability leaders.
It is now the 5th year in a row Ecostore has been hailed as the leader, with managing director Pablo Kraus saying their dedication should be emulated across New Zealand.
“While we are thrilled to appear top of the unprompted list for the fifth year in a row, New Zealand needs more companies championing sustainability. We are the only New Zealand company making all of our bottles from sugar plastic despite the significant advantages to the environment by switching, including reducing carbon from the environment. We are all in this together and corporates, particularly large corporates, need to lead the way.”
In one year, Kiwis have refilled bottles with over 30,000 litres of the company's cleaning and personal care products – that's the same size as a home water tank. With every bottle refilled that means one less bottle is produced. The company is now working toward making refilling easy and convenient.
