At Ecodownunder we believe we all have a responsibility to look after the natural environment for future generations. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.
In the 1990's we could see a lot of cheap synthetic products coming from China. Harsh chemicals like cancer causing Azo dyes and formaldehyde coated sheets were common. Synthetics like polyester or "micro fibre" (which are just plastic fibres), that break up into thousands of tiny pieces every wash cycle.
Single use plastic packaging that is thrown away as soon as you get home, or even worse, polystyrene and PVC!
We decided that we had to do better.
"Reduce, recycle, reuse" and beach cleans were good but.....it was obvious to us then that any meaningful change had to come from business by eliminating the source of the problem.
The idea for Ecodownunder was born in 1997.
Today we sell bedding products made of natural fibres following these standards:
