Eco Home — More Great Gift Shopping Online


Eco online stores are all the rage right now, there seems to be a new one popping up every week! The Natural Store and Coco's Shoppe are just two we've written about recently. But hey we’re not complaining, the more the better we say, there’s plenty of room for everybody on this world wide web of ours. The key to a successful online store is that it is easy to use and has it’s own distinctive style. Eco Home is successful in both these aims, using strong colours and sharp images to create an attractive and fun ‘shop window’. The Eco Home Store was recently launched by Jane and Ali who say, ‘We wanted to create a sustainable business that made sustainability fun, neither of us is a lentil chomping weirdy-beardy, but normal everyday people who enjoy life, our friends and home.’ Well yes thankfully they have left out the lentil chomping category, but have included lighting, furniture, soft furnishings, glassware, storage, stationary, toys and jewellery, a sort of eco Habitat if you will. The only thing we would like to see is more of is information about the designers. Jane and Ali say they want to promote young eco-designers in the UK, but this will be difficult if their names are not next to their products. Eco Home will have a stand at The Home Show, 20th April 2006 - 23rd April 2006, Excel Centre, Docklands, London. :: Eco Home
