Gorenje, the Slovenian manufacturer famed for its creative and innovative appliances, is proud to announce its exciting new partnership with eco-friendly cleaning brand Ecover.

Gorenje and Ecover combine to make the perfect ‘green’ team, thanks to their shared desire to maintain eco-credentials and create products that do a great job. Gorenje is renowned for the excellent energy ratings of its appliances with highly efficient resource-saving functions, while Ecover boasts a wide range of cleaning and laundry products that have been cleverly developed using plant-based and mineral ingredients.

Since the start of their collaboration, Gorenje and Ecover have used a variety of promotional methods to educate consumers about the importance and benefits of switching to efficient appliances and sustainable products, and explain the great results that can be achieved. They have taken part in various joint competitions, while also appearing together at the Fashion Festival, held at Festival Place shopping centre in Basingstoke.

Ruth Ferguson, marketing manager for Gorenje, says: “We are pleased to partner with Ecover, the brand’s ethos perfectly complements our own and together we make a great team. It has become increasingly important to follow a sustainable, efficient lifestyle and we hope to raise awareness amongst consumers. We have lots of exciting activities in the pipeline so watch this space!”

About Ecover:
• Plant-astic is a 100 per cent renewable, reusable and recyclable plastic made from
sugarcane and Ecover is the first cleaning brand in the UK to use it, and will use Plant-astic across its product range in 2011. The new bottles will look and feel like the current bottles, but consumers will be able to distinguish them by looking out for the distinctive green and blue Plant-astic logo.
• Ecover is effective – Ecover harnesses the power of nature to create highly effective and supremely ecological cleaning products.
• Ecover is sustainable – Ecover uses sustainable plant-based and mineral ingredients. All ingredients are chosen to ensure Ecover’s products are as effective as possible whilst also achieving the lowest possible toxicity and the most rapid and complete biodegradability.
• Ecover is pioneering – Ecover continually strives to improve its product range and has spent seven years developing a new ecological surfactant for use in its hard surface cleaning products. This new Eco-Surfactant means the range cleans as well as – or better than – the UK’s leading conventional brands. The products are made with fully renewable plant-based ingredients.
• Ecover is a truly ecological company – Ecover operates from its world-famous ecological factories in Belgium and France. The company’s guidelines for environmental criteria, the selection of ingredients and manufacturing processes are far stricter that those required by EU legislation. Ecover has been recognised by the United Nations Environment programme (UNEP) for their outstanding practical achievements for the protection and improvement of our environment.
• Ecover is closer than you think – Ecover’s ecological factories in France and Belgium are just 200 and 250 miles from London. This is approximately the same distance between Manchester and London, so although Ecover is not based in the UK, the transportation miles involved in distributing their products are comparable to those of UK based cleaning companies.
• Reuse, Reduce, Recycle – Ecover’s plastic bottles are made from polypropylene and polyethylene which are 100% recyclable. Both bottles and tops can be recycled together. Ecover offers a refill service through its health food store network which allows consumers to save money and plastic resources. Visit www.ecover.com to find out where your nearest refill station is.
