In mid-2018 Anya, Amy, Becky, and Gabriela - a group of friends working together in Leeds, were talking about how they all felt similarly frustrated by the growing plastic crisis.
They had all been feeling a growing plastic anxiety, and then high-profile documentary Blue Planet came out. The more they thought about it, the more plastic they could see everywhere. It was smothering, and they felt motivated for change. They realised that they wanted to be part of the solution, not the problem and needed to start now.
They began looking for ways to reduce their plastic use and cut everyday single-use household plastics out of their lives, but found they struggled to find the right products. Either the plastic-free alternatives they looked for did not exist, or they weren’t truly plastic-free, biodegradable or compostable. With all the lack of choice and misinformation around, they realised that if they found it hard work, other people probably did too.
Luckily inJune 2018 they had the opportunity to combine their passion with their creative, marketing and business skills.EcoVibe was born.
They set out to create EcoVibe as a clear, honest place people could easily find truly eco-friendly alternatives. They wanted to provide products that people loved, in a way that was easy to shop and orders that were a delight to receive!
