We'd love to tell you what this is all about, but first it would be good that you had a peek at our website to see what we're up to:
We'd love you to get involved!
Eqo is trying to encourage more people to ditch disposables and use reusables! Why? Because rubbish is a huge problem in our throwaway society, with consumerism ever increasing and more and more unnecessary throwaway items being produced to satisfy our need for quick convenience in a fast paced world. In particular, plastic is a massive problem. Have you seen The Great Pacific Garbage Patch??
A global environmental problem like this can seem too huge a problem for us to change, but if we all did something to cut down the waste we personally produce we'd all be contributing to a solution rather than a problem. After all, we're all in this together!
So this is our sole motivation. And to encourage people to try living more waste-free, we offer eco-friendly 'reusables' that help reduce the amount of waste you and your family produce, making your home a happier, healthier place! Let's start a reusable generation!
What we have planned for the future
We're really excited about the future. As more and more people make conscious consumer choices to reduce their household and food waste, the zero-waste lifestyle movement is gaining momentum.
We plan to expand our product range to offer new and exciting brands which aren't widely available in the UK and we'd also like to do our first pop-up shops in Bristol and London. If these are successful we might even open a permanent store!
A little about the rewards
Encouraging waste-free living always starts with a reusable shopping bag! With so many available now, we wanted to seek out the best and we found The Packbasket. Designed in the USA, we're the sole distributors in the UK and we love them!
The Packbasket is an innovative reusable shopping bag, while other reusable shopping bags crumble, allowing your produce to move around in the bag - the Packbasket stands tall, due to it's semi-rigid, lightweight internal frame which stays upright independant of load. This makes it easy for you to pack your shopping, feeling rest assured that it won't move around in the bag! Watch a short video here:
The Packbasket is great for shopping, but can be used for all sorts of other activities like the kids swimming bag, a food bag on long car journeys, a picnic bag, an office bag or anything else you can think to use it for!
Not only that, there are some great accessories to make the bag even more useful like the Pannier attachment to hook the bag onto the side of your bike like a pannier bag, a Backpack attachment to convert the bag into a backpack and a Cooler Liner to make the bag into a really useful cool bag!
