Taking a holiday? Spread the word about our Amenities range
If you’ve got a well earned holiday booked somewhere in New Zealand, you might want to help us tell the B&B, lodge, motel or hotel about our new Amenities range.
This new range of minis includes our Normal Shampoo and Conditioner, Orange and Patchouli Body Wash, Extra Moisturising Body Lotion and Lemongrass Soap.
They’re each made with gentle, plant-based ingredients and won’t strip the skin’s natural protective oils.
“At ecostore, if there is any doubt about an ingredient for people’s health, or for the environment, even if it’s plant-based, we will find a safer alternative,” our co-founder and CEO Malcolm Rands says. “We hope these small versions of our toiletries will make people love their holiday accommodation even more.”
We’ve launched the Amenities range in partnership with Health Pak. Jimi Kennedy-Grant from Health Pak is noticing big demand in the hospitality industry for safer and more environmentally friendly products.
“Largely driven by customer demand, we are seeing more and more requests for products that are not only good for the environment, but good for us. We are absolutely thrilled to be able to offer our hospitality partners an ecostore bathroom amenity range. I’m confident it’s going to be hugely popular.”
He sees strong synergies between Health Pak and ecostore when it comes to leadership in sustainability.
“Health Pak has been at the forefront of making our products as environmentally friendly as possible, long before it was popular or even a widely raised issue. We also lead the way with our degradable packaging and soap recycling programs so it really is a natural fit for us to be working with ecostore with their no nasty chemicals policy and 100% recyclable packaging using renewable sugarcane-based plastic.”
We were really proud to win the Ministry for the Environment’s Green Ribbon Business Leadership Award recently as an acknowledgement of our new Carbon Capture™ Paks - the bottles this mini product range is packaged in. The Carbon Capture Paks are made from renewable sugarcane – they’re fully recyclable and help to lower your carbon footprint.
Another feature of the Amenities range packaging is the distinctive artwork by John Reynolds, one of New Zealand’s most internationally renowned artists. “John’s ‘less is more’ philosophy on art reflects the elegance of our formulations,” Malcolm says. “We follow the Einstein principle that the most elegant solution is often the most simple.”
By the way, we hope to release this range as a travel pack early next year.
