One of my favorite customers just emailed me wondering where the Eco-Me laundry detergent went from our online store. She was hoping she just wasn’t seeing it but that it wasn’t truly gone, but no such luck–for the time being, we will not be carrying Eco-Me products (aside from the stock we still have at our warehouse—get it before it’s gone!).
Is Eco-Me Still the Good Stuff?
You know I’m all about transparency, so here’s the deal: Eco-Me products are shipped from California to our warehouse on the East Coast. This never felt great to me, since cleaning products are HEAVY, and I have many customers on the west coast…so there we were, this eco-conscious company, using all recycled shipping materials to send natural products from the west coast to the east then back to west. Ugh–the carbon footprint on a bottle of laundry detergent was weighing on my conscience…so I was thrilled when Eco-Me agreed to ship directly to my customers, cutting out the long trek from California to Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, while we were working out such a system for drop-shipping, Eco-Me was acquired by a larger conglomerate, and this company isn’t willing to work out such an arrangement with us. As Eco-Me products are increasinly available in grocery stores across the country, I cannot justify shipping heavy bottles of water-based products across the country and back–it just doesn’t align with our values as a business (and the shipping costs weren’t light either!).
So, while Eco-Me products still definitely qualify as Good Stuff, I won’t be carrying any of their products after we sell out of our current stock.
Introducing Sonnet Cleaning Products
We are now offering a line of products by Sonett, a German-founded line that is distributed from Hudson, NY–and who has agreed to ship directly to our customers! I like to offer products that are hard to find elsewhere, which is another reason Sonett is a good fit for us. Obviously it contains nothing sketchy, is super effective, and smells great. To make this even more economical and earth-friendly, we are selling Sonett products in two packs–I have total confidence you will love this stuff as much as I do. And for those of you who care about the look of your products Sonett’s packaging is way cuter than Eco-Me’s, so they look nice sitting on my kitchen sink! (Am I the only one who cares about that? It’s the main reason I was bummed that Mrs. Meyers turned out to be Sneaky Stuff!)
I’m sorry we won’t be able to offer Eco-Me any more, but I hope you’ll give Sonett a try!
