Ecover Review and Giveaway!

Ecover is an all natural company that has many useful products for the home. Here are a few things Ecover offers: Dishwasher Tablets, Glass and Surface Cleaner, Stain Remover, Boat Wash and Wax, and even Toilet Bowl Cleaner! Ecover generously offered me one of their products to review, so I chose the Lavender & Aloe Vera Hand Soap (8.4 fl. oz.) to review. (That was a good scent too, since my mom really likes the smell of lavender!) We put this in our little bathroom, and it's a nice change from the old soap bottle that was in there before.  My mom likes this soap because it doesn't make her hands feel dry after washing.  This soap is "based on plant and mineral ingredients", is PH neutral. 


                                                 
                   Here are the environmental benefits:


"-optimum level of biodegradability
-minimum impact on aquatic life
-no animal testing
-suitable for septic tanks

                                  About Ecover


Ecover is an international company active in the production of ecological cleaners. Founded in 1980 in Belgium,we have been a trendsetter from the very start: as a pioneering company, marketing a phosphate-free washing powder even before phosphates were branded as a problem.

Since then, Ecover, under the ownership of Jørgen Philip Sørensen CBE, has developed into the world’s largest producer of ecological cleaning products. Besides its headquarters outside of Antwerp, Belgium, Ecover has sites in the U.S., the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Switzerland, and our products are marketed in more than 26 countries.


Ecover’s progressive environmental policy is not only demonstrated by the products we sell, it is also an integral part of the company’s business operations. Acting in the spirit of the externally ISO 14001 standard, we have extended our environmental policy to all departments of the company, from production to marketing.

One of the most striking results is the world’s first ecological factory. Built in October 1992, it has a grass (sedum) roof extending over more than 10,8002 feet. It received extensive press attention at the time, and draws more than a thousand visitors every year even now. In May 2007, Ecover opened its second ecological factory in Boulogne sur Mer, Northern France.

Ecover has received awards and recognition on many occasions for its special contributions and achievements in the field of environmentally friendly, sustainable development. Among various recognition, perhaps the most prestigious was being named to the Global 500 Roll of Honour of the United Nations Environment Program, in 1993."
