Since it was founded in Belgium almost 35 years ago, Ecover is a pioneer and international trendsetter in the manufacture of efficient, environmentally-friendly laundry detergents and household cleaning agents. Today, its extensive range of products sets Ecover apart from other companies in the segment for sustainability.

In 1980 the Belgian soap dealer Frans Bogaerts, determined to produce environmentally-friendly and sustainable soaps and washing products, experimenting in his garden shed, developed the first phosphate-free laundry detergent which was not only environmentally friendly but also effective. This was the start of the Ecover company. 30 years later, Ecover is European market leader for detergents and cleaning agents. Ecover products are marketed in over 40 countries. The company’s business philosophy has remained the same over the years: from raw materials to production processes, from household use and disposal of its products, Ecover stands for sustainability. 

 

All the company’s production, packaging and logistics processes meet stringent environmental criteria. For example, the bottles are made from a material based on sugar cane – a renewable and biologically degradable resource. The production plants in Belgium and France were designed in accordance with the company philosophy, with green roofs, minimal energy consumption due to responsible use of lighting and heating, and employees who are encouraged to leave their cars in the garage and travel to work by bike or to use car pools. 

Ecover products meet all the company criteria, for example, the Ecover Zero Line contains no perfumes or colorants making them especially suitable for people with allergies and sensitive skin. More and more people are choosing Ecover products – and not only in environmentally-aware northern Europe: in April 2013, the American actress Gwyneth Paltrow recommended Ecover lime scale remover on her lifestyle website (www.goop.com), because it works without giving people headaches. Ecover products are found not only in healthfood stores, but already have a place on the shelves of the big supermarkets.
