I’m a user and a fan of Ecoegg, and I’m so pleased to tell you that this British manufacturer of innovative eco-friendly cleaning and household products has been recognised for their hard work and entrepeneurialship by winning the prestigious business award, the Queens award for enterprise. It is the UK’s highest business accolade, the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, was awarded to Ecoegg for outstanding business success in Innovation. This award by HM The Queen acknowledges the company’s innovative product development and commercial success.
To celebrate, they invited me to test another one of their products. My Ecoegg collection is steadily growing, I already have the original Ecoegg laundry egg, the fabric conditioner (still using it), the food saver discs and the multi purpose cleaner (still going strong and so much left). I’m now trying out the hard surface cleaner. All the products have a pleasant citrus smell and it goes without saying they’re eco friendly. They really work and save you money because they’re concentrated and give you long term use.
The hard surface cleaner is easy to use and comes with it’s own sponge, you just wet it, apply the product, clean and then rinse away to get a lovely shine. I’ve used it on my mirrors and my oven hob, and I can see it’s going to last a long time, too, so it’s great value for money. You can just see that there are no harsh chemicals and that it’s all natural, it’s pure white with just the right hint of fragrance for a fresh clean smell.
Now you can win your own hard surface cleaner, just enter via the Rafflecopter widget below. UK entry only.
Ecoegg’s ingenious products are sold by major retailers including Lakeland and Holland & Barrett, as well as on television shopping channels such as QVC. The range includes the multi award-winning Laundry Egg, which has sold over one million units worldwide. Completely eliminating the need for chemical based washing detergent, the Egg contains eco-friendly, hypoallergenic cleaning pellets, and provides significant cost savings of up to 91% per year for the average household*. Other popular products include the Eggsterminator cleaning tool which delivers powerful cleaning with water alone, and the clever Fresher for Longer Discs that prolong the life of fruit and vegetables for the health and cost conscious.
In 2012, keen to support the British economy, Ecoegg re-shored its manufacturing to the UK from China. The move has increased manufacturing costs by 15%, however allows Ecoegg closer control over product quality and better aligns the company’s carbon footprint with its ecological ethos.
Following the company’s growth and international success over the past eight years, Ecoegg now plans to launch its eco-friendly products in China, Japan, South Korea and Canada.
Rob Knight, Founder & Managing Director of Ecoegg, said: “We’re thrilled to have been awarded a Queen’s Award in such a competitive category. We’ve worked so hard as a company to develop products that make a real, positive impact to the lives of people that use them, as well as to the environment.
“Innovation drives everything we do at Ecoegg and the Laundry Egg, along with our 18 other eco-friendly products, have each revolutionised the categories in which they compete. Providing a cost effective and natural alternative to products that have remained the same for decades, and changing the way we think about everyday tasks such as cleaning, is something we’re very proud of.
“In the current economic climate and given the number of brands moving into the eco-friendly product market, this recognition will allow us to take the next step in reaching a whole new audience with our products.”
