Ecogiving.org: Entrepreneurs with a heart in Spain
ecogiving.org is not only striving to reduce plastic waste, promoting the circular economy and providing vegan certified products, but also giving back to the communities and charities in the area. With these things as the core ethos, ecogiving.org has created a sustainable and circular brand intending to give back and ultimately branch out into Europe and the USA.
When Garry Robey felt stuck in a rut in his sales position, having lost his passion for the role after 25 years, he knew he wanted to do something for the community that involved charities and vegan-certified, eco-friendly products. Coming up with the idea one early morning, Garry had seen an important gap in the market – and so the concept of ecogiving.org was born.
So, what is ecogiving.org and how does it work? It’s simple – yet nobody has thought of it yet! You purchase easy “eco-swaps” from the website, such as toothpaste tablets, cleaning tablets, solid soaps, scrubbing brushes and more, choose a charity you feel passionate about to donate a portion of the price to and ecogiving.org does the rest. Not only this, all of the vegan-certified and eco-friendly products are produced in the UK and Europe.
Having been heavily involved in the community in Torrox Costa, Malaga, organising charitable events, beach clean-ups, toy collections and allotments at the primary schools of their two children, Garry and his wife Tammy met like-minded people who were also passionate about giving back to the community and the circular economy model.
Just five months ago, the couple decided to take their vision to the next level, approaching charities such as APAA, Torrox Solidaria and Tail Torrox to find out their needs and if the concept was something they were interested in. Unsurprisingly, they found that the main setback for many entities is the lack of regular donations.
If you are a charity, place of worship or NGO school looking for a way to bring in regular donations, this seamless and transparent way of shopping is a sure-fire way of doing that. You will be able to easily download the orders that have been made through the website, meaning you can keep track of the donations. Ecogiving.org is looking to connect with more charities and entities in need, with an already impressive partnership with brands and charities such as Barcelona’s first-ever animal sanctuary Barcelona Fundacion el Hogar.
