ecostore cleans up at the Sustainable Business Network Awards

Household and personal care products manufacturer ecostore was named ‘Sustainable Business of the Year’ at the Sustainable Business Network awards for the northern region last night.

ecostore uses sustainably sourced plant and mineral-based ingredients in its products, sold through supermarkets and health food stores in Australia and New Zealand, online and through its own shop in Auckland.

The company, founded in 1993, was the category winner for the ‘Large Business Trailblazer’ award and went on to scoop the top prize at the awards presentation in Auckland.

The judging panel was impressed by ecostore’s commitment to the environment and best social practices. It was also commended for the processes used to track the lifecycle of each product from design and manufacturing to use and disposal.

ecostore has succeeded in providing high quality, chemical-free, New Zealand-made products in a market typically driven by low prices and dominated by major multinational brands.

The Sustainable Business Network Awards recognise businesses that are demonstrating leadership by embracing innovation, sustainability and regenerative practices in their day-to-day operations.
