Is ECOS a sustainable cleaning products brand? 

Founded in 1977, ECOS is a cleaning products brand. Unfortunately, ECOS does not meet the minimum ethical benchmark on The Good Shopping Guide’s Cleaning Products Ethical Ratings Table.

Because it currently has a below-benchmark score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Cleaning Products sector, ECOS cannot yet be classed as an ethical and sustainable brand. Despite this, The Good Shopping Guide still encourages ECOS to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. When The Good Shopping Guide has received its application, ECOS will be offered some advice on how to become a more ethical cleaning products brand.

Would you like to find out how ECOS ranks against other brands within the Ethical Cleaning Products sector? Visit the Cleaning Products Ethical Ratings Table. You can learn more about the criteria that a brand must meet in order to achieve a top rating from The Good Shopping Guide’s Ratings Tables.

The Good Shopping Guide recommends that all brands follow in the footsteps of our top-rated brands and start introducing more sustainable policies.

Does ECOS have an Environmental Report?

ECOS has a recent Sustainability Report which contains lots of targets for environmental and sustainability issues such as carbon emissions and plastic packaging. The report also demonstrates evidence of progress on previous targets.

As a result, ECOS receives a top rating for our Environmental Report category.

Why does ECOS have a middle score for Political donations? 

Within recent election cycles, ECOS’ parent company Venus Laboratories has donated over $51k. as this amount is above our threshold for a top rating, ECOS receives a middle rating in this category.

What can ECOS do to improve its score? 

ECOS’s below-benchmark score on The Good Shopping Guide’s Cleaning Products Ethical Ratings Table is the result of an assessment of multiple ethical criteria.

Because of its low score within the Ethical Cleaning Products sector ECOS is not currently eligible for Ethical Accreditation. However, ECOS is still encouraged to get in touch with The Good Shopping Guide to apply. After we have received ECOS’ application, it will be offered some tailored advice on how to improve its bottom scores.
