That’s right, we’ve received our first order in March of 2008! Thank you for being partners in our mission!
The story of Ecoizm goes back to 2007, when Adrian Zelenak, the owner of the business founded Zöldbolt, the first Hungarian store selling exclusively eco-friendly products. The name has an important meaning: Zöldbolt translates to Green Store in Hungarian. Adrian previously worked for green NGOs and also in politics. But he realized, that instead of end-of-pipe solutions, a holistic environmental approach should be pursued in daily shopping as well, as the best pollution is the one which has not already happened. His goal was to make products with considerable environmental benefits accessible to everyone.
Zöldbolt opened as an online store and soon the first order came: precisely in March of 2008. The first brick and mortar store opened in Veszprém and a few years later another one followed in Budapest. Soon other shops became resellers too, as the environmental awareness spread and generated increasing demand.
After the shop became really popular, it seemed to be a logical step, to try our the idea on the EU market as well. The first step was to create a new international online store called Ecoizm.com, along with a few Ecoizm branded products. These products have a new angle, that make them unique on the market in terms of ecological advantages. The purpose of Ecoizm is to support eco conscious consumers all over Europe to find the best holistic solutions. We want to accelerate the transition to a greener future, by spreading knowledge and making eco-friendly choices easier with our excellent products.
Ecoizm.com launched in 2015 and we’ve been serving customers all over Europe ever since. In the past two years we've found resellers in Central Europe, and a distributor in the UK as well. We couldn't be happier that our ethos is spreading so quickly!
We are constantly looking for new resellers, so if you’d like to become one, please let us know by sending an email to info (at) ecoizm (dot) com.
