We Go ECO - Ecover Review and Giveaway

Green Earth Journey

I usually make my own liquid soap but I loved receiving the hand soap from Ecover. The Ecover hand soap smells like lavender and contains aloe vera. The Ecover hand soap is plant based and the packaging is 100% recyclable. I really enjoyed working with the Ecover representative because I knew she had actually taken the time out of her day to look at my site and read a post. The winner will receive Ecover products.

Meet Maurizio Montalti, Biomaterials Design Hacker

Eco Chic

Companies like BioMason and Ecovative work to diminish the footprint of architecture and of, in Ecovative’s case, everyday shipping and packing. Certainly, Ecovative has had success in replacing plastic shipping materials with more sustainable recycled and versatile fungal-based “grown” alternatives (namely mycelium, which we have discussed more in depth in recent articles). Maurizio Montalti is something of an original.

Right now I have Ecover’s hand soap next to my kitchen and bathroom sinks! I’ve romanticized the idea of making my own all-natural soaps for a while now, even giving them out as gifts, but the problem is that I can’t seem to find the time to do it! Making our own cleansing products after work probably isn’t going to happen for most of us. But you can’t just grab just any old soap off the shelf either.

Multiple carcinogens in Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Shampoo

Dioxane is also found in Ecover products and when challenged, the supposedly eco-comscious company, Ecover, refused to discuss it and stated that (1) that “the stuff is perfectly safe” and (2) that they had no intention of making any changes. I found it very disturbing that a company claiming to be green and claiming to produce eco-products such as Ecover flatly refused to even countenance the removal of dioxane from its products.
