The Nativity. Sleeping Beauty. Eco Ness.
Like all iconic stories, our one started with a birth…
Whilst we’ve always cared about saving the planet, for many years it was only really in a “someone else will solve the problem” kind of way. That was, until we had kids.
Having little lives to look after forced us to face up to the harm we were causing as individuals and as a society. And, boy, did it feel uncomfortable! We knew that we wanted to safeguard our children’s futures and give them the chance to see all of the natural beauty that the world has to offer.
So, we also knew that we had to make some changes!
We set out on a journey to find products for our homes and lives that were not only ethical and sustainable, but also convenient. However, it’s safe to say that doing so in the Scottish Highlands wasn’t exactly easy - It’s not like there’s a zero waste shop on every corner (or even one within 50 miles…)
We don’t have a mission, we have a duty.
The products that we stock here at Eco Ness are the ones that we found and loved on our own, pretty bumpy, road towards a more sustainable life. We’ve bought them together to make travelling your road easier.
We’re not superheroes on a mission to save the world. We’re busy mums who have a duty to look after the planet for future generations and want to help you to do the same, even if your to-do list seems never-ending!
We’re hand holders, not finger pointers.
Whether you’re a fully fledged eco-warrior who eats nothing but vegan food and doesn’t throw away a single piece of plastic, or you’re dipping your toe into the world of sustainability and don’t know where to start, we’re not here to judge you.
Because, let’s be honest, we’re still imperfect ourselves!
In a world where more and more corporations are using being “environmentally friendly” as a marketing gimmick, we wanted to cut through the BS. Eco Ness puts the legwork in for you, thoroughly researching every product we stock, so that you can feel confident it ticks all of the right boxes. No matter where you are on your journey.
Sustainable brands, without the bland.
We also don’t believe that you should have to skip out on owning beautiful products and feeling your best just because you love Mother Earth. If anything, you should get a pass to more of that good stuff!
All of the brands we stock are chosen with this in mind. Not only do they do good, but they look good. Oh and they actually work really well too...
Small. Scottish. Sexy.
Okay. That last one might be subjective. But we don’t think there’s anything sexier than caring for the planet!
Run from our studio by the sea in the Scottish Highlands, we’re passionate about supporting other small businesses like our own. Businesses that truly care about more than just their bottom line.
We’ve connected with so many inspiring small brands, many of which are also Scottish, and are as obsessed with being more sustainable as we are.
