Our Story

Hello and welcome to our store!

We are 100% NZ owned and operated family business based in Auckland. We operate our business solely online.

So how did we discover Ecoegg?

Well, here’s our story.

My name is Janice and I am a busy mum of four beautiful children. Over 7 years ago, we decided to use cloth nappies (when my second son came along) to save some money and to live a more environmentally friendly and sustainable life. I always wanted a product that was natural, no harsh chemicals and cost-effective to wash my cloth nappies. After all, I will be doing a lot of washing and I wanted something that was safe on my baby’s bottom. I did a lot of research of my own and finally stumbled upon Ecoegg.

Everywhere but New Zealand?

To our dismay, this product can only be purchased in the UK and many other surrounding countries but not in New Zealand. With the many wonderful reviews on the website, I finally bought the Ecoegg from the UK even though it costs us an arm and a leg to get them shipped here.

I was thrilled when the package arrived at my doorstep but I was actually quite skeptical. How can an egg wash my clothes? How well can it clean? 

So what was the results?

O-M-G. I was in love. I had fallen in love with a recyclable eco-friendly rubber-plastic egg! I was pleasantly surprised at how well it cleaned my clothes and cloth nappies. It was also straight forward and simple to use.

Sharing the Egg

I think we equally deserve to use such a phenomenal product that is good for your skin and also kind to the environment. So based on my wonderful experience with the laundry egg and other products in its range, we’ve decided to bring Ecoegg to New Zealand. We’ve also became the FIRST distributor for Ecoegg in New Zealand since 2014. 

Since then, our customers who have tried the laundry egg (and other Ecoegg range) have raving reviews and have never gone back to using conventional laundry powder/detergent again. The effect is that powerful. So try it for yourself today. 

We believe that anyone who has a washing machine will benefit from using the Ecoegg Laundry Egg. It is safe for the whole family and it’s a great product for those who are suffering from eczema, sensitive skin and many other skin conditions (due to our harsh weather).

Since introducing Ecoegg to New Zealand, we have also added other lovely ranges to our online store like our natural skincare range as well as our popular feminine hygiene range.

We have children and we know how important it is to give the best to our kids and loved ones. In doing so, we are helping Kiwi families to use the right products by carefully and lovingly picking products that are kind to their skin, without the harsh chemicals.

And that’s how Eco Shop was formed – to provide safe cleaning products for the family and the environment. We will continue to strive to find products that are natural, great for the environment, kind to your skin and most importantly, value for money.

Enjoy browsing our store and have a great day!

To your best of health and family,

Janice Banks
