EcoCentric was co founded by TV designer, Oliver Heath in 2006. Here you will find a shop where style and chic meets ethics. EcoCentric was set up as a response to a need for beautifully designed, coordinated sustainable products for the home.
Throughout his media work, Oliver makes a positive commitment to discussing sustainability; demonstrating how people can make it part of their lifestyles in ways that won’t compromise their sense of style.
Oliver has worked on many campaigns for sustainable living, with WRAP (the Waste and Resources Action Program) and the Energy Saving Trust.
EcoCentric stock a range of reused, recycled and recyclable products as well as UK made, organic and Fair Trade – so whatever your cause, you can support it by shopping at EcoCentric.
Recycled products include stationary, toys, glassware, bags and gifts.
Packaging is something the company really care about too. Their office paper is shredded to provide filling for packages, which is a wonderful and innovative idea of turning ‘waste’ into a resource! They also reuse packaging sent from suppliers as well as biodegradable packing tape. How many times have you had a beautifully wrapped box only to find you’re left with metres of sellotape to get rid of?
One of the things I particularly love about EcoCentric is that they have a fixed delivery charge of just £1.95 for all mainland UK orders. There have been two companies in the past who I have refused to order from, after they would not shift on their extortionate postage costs. I know companies have overheads and staff to pay, but sometimes the postage can make the total cost of buying one item prohibitive. This is a great move by EcoCentric that I feel sure will secure them some loyal customers.
They employ a dedicated team of packers who are experts at maximising on space and minimising on waste.
We’re delighted to be able to offer one winner a bathroom accessories set comprising a Soap dispenser, Toothbrush holder and plate all made from recycled glass in our Pledge and WIN competition.
Oliver has just written a new book called Urban Eco Chic about how to green up your home in style. The book will be launched and available to buy from EcoCentric in September. But if you just can’t wait and want to take a peek, it is about to be serialised on the EcoCentric website. Keep checking this page for details
