The idea for EcoShopDirect (ESD) first came to us in 2007. Quite simply, we wanted to find a way to reduce the cost of Eco-Goods and reduce the number of shopping trips. We knew that nearly 90% of consumers said they would prefer to buy natural and eco products, but when push came to shove, only about 10% actually bought. So that gave us a mission. How could we go some way to close this gap?
One solution appeared to fit perfectly with emerging shopping trends - on-line shopping - combining the eco-benefits of ‘Shop and Drop’ with the cost-benefits of buying in bulk.
We then focused upon performance. Before we launch any products, we do extensive testing in-house, and then we send out samples to customers to try. Only if the feedback is overwhelmingly positive, do we offer them for sale.
And then we had to find a way so that customers knew they could now buy eco & natural products direct from our factory..
