Launched in 2017, my ECO FRIENDLY Boutique website was born after a couple of friends had an experience in an environmental NGO in Cambodia. They had to set up Eco Friendly tours, and were confronted with major and alarming environmental problems: deforestation, drought, and plastic waste on the beaches. Coming home from Asia, they decided not to return to their field of activity, business tourism but to continue an effort to produce a more Eco friendly environment. As owner, I decided to provide a website where people all over the world would be able to access Eco friendly products at their finger tips.
" Favor small daily actions that will make the big changes tomorrow"
The objective of my ECO FRIENDLY Boutique is to offer environmentally friendly products, to encourage a sustainable lifestyle, and to encourage small everyday actions that will make the big changes of tomorrow. This site offers a multitude of different eco-friendly products.There is no definition or standard that determines whether a product is Eco-friendly or not. On the other hand several factors make it possible to differentiate that a product is more or less ecological:
- The raw material: our eco friendly products must avoid as much as possible any plastics or other polluting artificial materials. Wood, renewable and natural, is preferred.
- Its use: eco friendly products are not disposable but reusable.
- Its impact on the environment: our products must not harm the environment and health (no rejection) in their daily use.
- End of life: we try to select biodegradable, compostable or recyclable products as soon as possible.
We do not claim to offer 100% ecological products. As you have already seen, it is very difficult today to find the ideal ecological product, made entirely with renewable resources (which repels), locally (without transport), without the need for energy in its manufacture or operation, without pollution of air, water or soil, and that it is completely biodegradable or recyclable without additional energy cost.
But why not start with products that are 50% ecological?
