“Eco-Me was created out of need and concern -- the need to remove dangerous chemicals from our homes and the environment and the concern that toxins emitted from everyday products is the cause of increased disease in our society,” says Founder and President, Robin Kay Levine.
Basic findings show that the air in our homes is 3 to 7 times more chemically polluted than outdoor air, and that the average home contains as much as 25 pounds of toxic cleaning products.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission stated that of the chemicals commonly found in homes, 150 have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer and psychological abnormalities.
Robin worked with national organizations such as the Breast Cancer Fund, Natural Products Association and Healthy Child Healthy World. She studied documented cases and reports put forth by the Environmental Working Group, Environmental Protection Agency, Consumer Products Safety Committee, FDA, Environment Canada Domestic Substance Lists and the EU Cosmetics Directive.
Her research was later turned into education materials on how harmful ingredients in everyday products should be avoided due to connections with cancer, hormone disruption, immune and neurological system contaminants, allergies, asthma and more.
Going back to the basics with a modern twist is what Eco-Me is all about. Relying on food-grade natural ingredients (vinegar, baking soda, olive oil...) and pure plant essential oils, Eco-Me products are the safest cleaners on the market and are made locally from our family to yours.
Eco-Me products fully disclose all ingredients and INCI names on its labels. The goal is to educate and empower customers to feel good about making healthy purchases. No need for a PhD in chemistry, Eco-Me uses the same basic ingredients you find right in your kitchen pantry.
Each one of the Family Cleaners has a name and personality; each product brings a new way of healthy cleaning to your home. Customers relate to the names, they create a relationship with the brand and integrate our family with their family.
Clinically tested for safety and effectiveness, Eco-Me Family Cleaners prove that you don’t need chemicals, preservatives, synthetic fragrances or dyes to get your home clean. In side-by-side efficacy testing, Eco-Me is proven to clean equally or better than our competition. Reducing bacteria in 60 seconds, naturally deodorizing, degreasing, polishing and overall cleaning.
Consumer education is deeply important to Eco-Me. Over the past 5 years, the company has advocated for their customers, who have turned to the brand for the honest truth on chemicals, the lowdown on label reading and for a community to create healthy and safe homes.
