Is the environment dear to your heart?
Discover Éco & Éco, a family business from Montreal which offers a natural alternative to traditional products: body care, cleaning products and beddings made from fabric that is certified organic by the OCVQ.
Our story began a few years ago, driven by our desire to find natural products in their purest form. This drive to find compostable alternatives brought our attention to the luffa, one of our first products. While the luffa is well known for its use in body care, we found other uses for it, such as washing dishes, as it is in fact a multi-use sponge. We then added soap nuts to our lineup, a fruit hull which creates a gentle soap when it comes into contact with water. We created a liquid form of this product.
Slowly, we added new products: Canadian pumice stone pink salts. We wanted to create a sense of belonging while helping others discover locally-sourced products.
We were also concerned with offering products for everyday use and developed a line of bedding: Bedding sheet set and Buckwheat pillow. What helps us stand out from other buckwheat pillow manufacturers is that our woven fabric is entirely weaved in Montreal with organic cotton without dye. This makes our pillows pliable, soft and distinctive. Only a few companies are ''Certified Organic”. We have added in 2020 Black Sheets, also certified organic but with a plant based and water based colour.
In 2013, we noticed the appearance of a green leaf in logos as well as the use of Kraft paper in packaging. We developed our new brand image, an image that truly reflects who we are.
Thus, the image was born. Boreal Forest and Canadian Clay lines followed. We wanted to offer all natural products but also made it our mission to handpick the best ingredients according to our exacting standards, and added Canadian components and ingredients, a challenge we absolutely wanted to meet. Our line now included black spruce and Labrador tea, both odours that highlight our Canadian heritage.
An olfactory experience that will not leave you indifferent.
In 2013, in our desire to expand our bedding line and add a plant-based pillow. By happenstance, we discovered a plant called milkweed – or Asclepias Syriaca. This homegrown natural fiber with exceptional properties piqued our curiosity. Bit by bit, our little project came to life. With the years we had to make some changes of our original Milkweed Comforter, we offer now natural comforter, a blend of milkweed and kapok.
Our products are distinctive because they’re made in Canada but also because Canada is an integral part of them. We wish to thank all our clients and distributors for their loyalty and for believing in us since 2007.
