At Ecover, we want to find ways to make shopping easier and more convenient for you. We know that when you need to replenish your Dishwasher Tablets or Toilet Bowl Cleaner, time is of the essence in your busy life! So, tell us … how do you prefer to shop? Although our new online store has become an instant hit, we wonder how many of you still prefer to browse in stores – or appreciate having both options available. Chime in below, and we’ll use the results to continue to improve our customer service!

Our September sweepstakes starts today, just in time for back-to-school! Enter until September 19th for your chance to win four great Ecover products that will help you and your family start the new school year with a clean slate! Now that the kids have their Number 2’s sharpened and glue sticks at the ready, you’ll want to make sure their clothes are stain free, the dishes are done and the bathroom is shining. It’s the perfect time for a fresh take on all your household chores.
Summer certainly has had its pleasures, but we love how September ushers in renewed energy and focuses the mind on new projects and endeavors! Ecover has you covered with effective plant-based products that are suitable for septic tanks, are biodegradable and are never tested on animals.
To enter, “like” us on Facebook, then click on the sweepstakes tab to the left under our profile picture and follow the easy instructions. The sweepstakes ends at midnight on the 19th. One lucky winner will be picked at random on the 20th! Here’s what this month’s winner will receive (total value: $20):
- 6.8-oz Stain Remover – Grass, grease, mud and blood are no object for our power-packed stain remover. And you’ll love the handy built-in brush to get the cleaning action started!
- 14-oz Non-Chlorine Bleach Powder – A little dynamo that keeps whites bright and removes stains without harmful chlorine or phosphates.
- 32-oz Grapefruit & Green Tea Dishwashing Liquid – One squirt is all you need to clean a sink full of dishes, and the gentle formulation means no excessive “sudsing.”
- 16-oz Bathroom Cleaner – Use this chrome-friendly cleaner on all your bathroom surfaces to banish dirt and soap scum.
Good luck – and good luck to all you parents who have kids back in school!
When you leave the house, which surfaces are most likely to make you think twice before touching them? The award-winning germ fighters at Ecover would love your feedback on our latest survey! We can’t see the little nasties, but we know they’re everywhere.
Still, it’s unsettling to learn that the bottom of a woman’s purse harbors thousands of bacteria – and so do kitchen sinks, elevator buttons, phones and computer keyboards. Yet toilet seats are relatively clean, ranking 19th in home bacteria! Go figure!

We’ve found that a lot of people love to clean house to their favorite tunes…do certain songs move you to mop? Do you do the dust-boogie? Is there a soundtrack for your clean routine? Ecover wants to know! Judging by the blogosphere buzz, lots of people get a musical assist when cleaning house – and have some pretty definitive song choices! Take our survey, and tell us which musical genre you rely on to pump up your cleaning mojo?
The kitchen can be the most frequently used room in the house. Seems that by the time you’ve washed the dishes from one meal, it’s time to start the next! And for households with children, time spent in the kitchen also includes snack time, homework, and “hanging out” time. With all this commotion, it’s difficult to find the time to clean up this high traffic space! That brings us to our question today: How often do you give the kitchen a good, thorough, top-to-bottom cleaning?
Our products, made from plant-based ingredients, are particularly appropriate for the kitchen. When you use Ecover you know that the kitchen is both an incredibly clean and healthy space for your family!

Ecover is thrilled that colleges and universities continue to initiate eco-friendly programs and promote sustainability. While institutions help the environment by reducing their carbon footprints, attaining LEED certification for campus buildings and implementing green course curriculum, there is still the responsibility of the individual.
There are many examples of students devoting themselves to sustainability. Students feel confident that they are helping on a micro-level in their day to day routine. Using our products can help reduce chemical runoff and reduce waste, a small way to help make a big difference.

The New Year’s season is a time for reflection on the year past and resolutions for the year ahead. The great thing about New Year’s resolutions is not just losing a few pounds, or finally organizing that storage room; it’s also the opportunity for renewing our commitment to our lives and lifestyles – a rededication to a sustainable vision for the world around us.
Sustainable choices to reach our goals are not always easy, but January helps to put a new light on them…so Ecover wants to know: what sustainability resolutions do you have for 2011?
