When we designed Ecopots more than ten years ago, no one had heard about the ‘plastic soup’. No one was thinking about using recycled materials for their flower pots and planters. But we did. We saw the need and potential to use recycled materials for our products and continue to do so today. But that's only half the story. Design and functionality are equally important to us. Combine the three and you have what makes Ecopots truly unique.
In our philosophy, durability is more than reusing or recycling materials. It’s also about designing and producing products that last. So Ecopots are not only sturdy, frost resistant and break proof, but are also timeless in their design and use of colours. Beautiful today, tomorrow and in ten years time. Because we believe the most durable products are those products you don’t want – or have - to replace every year.
Our design philosophy
Our effort to reduce our carbon footprint
Ecopots follows the Scandinavian design philosophy. In short, this philosophy is about creating a calm and clutter free home as a counter balance to hectic and stressful daily lives. It is being characterized by clean and simple lines, minimalism and the use of natural colours and materials.
In November 2020 Ecopots, as the first brand in our sector, received both the CO2 Neutral company and CO2 Neutral Product certification. This certificate guarantees our calculation, reduction and compensation of our local and global impact. The certificate can only be obtained through serious climate efforts and is validated by Vincotte. Through the CO2Logic programme, we support these three inspiring climate projects:
Cookstoves in Kenya
The aim of this project is for CO2logic and its partners to support the development and distribution of efficient cookstoves in order to save millions of trees, support families, boost economic activities and improve health conditions in Kenya.
Forest protection in Guatamala
This project will assure legality of land userights and decrease illegal practices that harm the environment. Project activities will better protect the environmental functions of the diverse ecosystem, lower greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and degradation processes will be prevented.
Water in Rwanda
This project gives households access to clean water, which eliminates the need of boiling water for purification purposes. This saves a lot of wood which protects the trees and the forests.
