WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
With domestic U.S. landfills inundated, and only 8% of our waste being recycled annually, ECOIST founder Sue Choi felt compelled to seek out inspiring brands who shared her vision of a plastic-free and refined sustainable future. After countless hours researching and discovering the most creative, high-quality, and aesthetically elevated brands at the forefront of the sustainability movement, Sue knew she had to bring them together in one place. That’s when ECOIST was born -- A one-stop shop for eco-conscious consumers who want to save time while discovering inspiring items for a cleaner lifestyle and a healthier planet.
WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
We believe in the ideals of the regenerative culture and circular economy. We thrive to connect with each individual in an effort towards healthier changes. Through these connections, we are able to think in terms of the entire eco-cycle of products that have positive environmental and social impacts, and when it comes time to purchase home products from Ecoist, your decision contributes towards the collective vision. This, in turn fosters changes, interrupting various forms of major pollution which is the goal. We are committed to adopting the healthy and resilient principles of the regenerative culture, 'Cradle to Cradle' approach to creating a circular designed economy.
We believe it begins with pursuit of caring for the planet and life itself, upholding the awareness that this empathetic perspective is the most effective way to create a thriving healthy future for all of us:
Ensure we take care of the relationship we have, being mindful of how we affect each other, taking responsibility for our side of our relationships.
Ensure we take care of our own needs and personal recovery from the different forms of toxicity that exist within our system.
People & Planet Care
Ensure we look after our wider communities and the earth that sustain us all.
Ensure we take care of our development as a network and community, strengthening our connections and adherence to these principles and values.
Each one of us must do our part in creating a better world, through the small choices we make each day - what we buy, eat, wear - may seem insignificant, the cumulative effect of billions of people making ethical choices, will start to heal the natural world. – Jane Goodall
