We’re so excited to announce that this week, we’re launching some of our eco-friendly cleaning products on the John Lewis & Partners website. This opportunity sees us launch our products into our first major retailer, giving John Lewis & Partners customers the option to purchase sustainable cleaning options. Working with John Lewis & Partners will see some of our most popular eco-alternative products, including antibacterial cleaning sachets, a glass spray bottle and compostable sponges sold on the national department stores website from February. Working with a retailer like John Lewis & Partners is a major milestone for us on our mission to creating a greener, cleaner future. The John Lewis & Partners website attracts millions of visits and purchases each month so we’re really excited to see the growth of our environmentally-conscious brand.
At EcoVibe we believe everyone can make changes to reduce their impact on the planet and a great place to start is within the home. We are committed to helping consumers reduce their impact by providing sustainable simple switches for everyday life. Starting with cleaning products is a great way to reduce your plastic waste and cut carbon emissions whilst generating the same great results. We’re confident that John Lewis & Partners customers are going to love our sustainable swaps for their everyday, household cleaning items.
Over the past year, the pandemic has prompted a shift in consumer behaviour towards environmentally friendly and sustainable products, with more than a third (36%) of Brits saying that they’re buying products from companies with strong environmental credentials. A further 80% say they are planning to purchase goods and services from environmentally friendly businesses, according to a research report from E.ON.
This change has reflected positively on our sales, triggering a surge in demand and a rise in orders for plastic-free products. In March 2020, website sales increased by 49% compared to the previous month and 4102% compared to March 2019.
Ensuring we stay true to our brand values, EcoVibe is an avid supporter of Rainforest Trust UK, donating a percentage of our revenue for every order placed through our website. We’ve already saved over 63 acres of rainforest to offset carbon emissions and give back to the environment.
