London Stationery Show the next stop for eco-eco stationery
Founded in 2015 by Laura McGowan and James Faulkner who have a combined 30 years’ experience in the sector, eco-eco specialises in stationery products that are ecologically produced. Each product is made from a minimum of 50 per cent recycled material and is 100 per cent recyclable.
Laura said: “While we are a new company, our aim is to lead the way in making environmentally friendly stationery products the norm and not the exception and what better opportunity to do so than at the London Stationery Show.
“We believe there is a place in the market for ecological stationery that is not inferior in quality and encourages people to embrace ‘buying green’ without it costing them the earth. Underpinning this belief is the research we have done among customers who tell us that while they want to play their part in supporting sustainability they are deterred by having to pay an inflated price and compromise on quality.”
Laura said eco-eco, based in Lye in the Black Country, uses couriers which are committed to reducing their carbon footprint, operates a paper-free office and encourages its customers to communicate electronically. In addition, a percentage of the company’s annual profit will be donated to an ecologically and socially aware charity, chosen by customers.
The company, which sells the majority of its products online, is hoping to expand its range of products including display books and punch pockets as the business grows to include project dividers, document wallets and general filing and binding products.
“We’re passionate about eco-eco and are looking forward to coming to London to showcase our products and meet the range of buyers who attend this important event,” added Laura.
