ABOUT THE EKKO SHOP
The Ekko Shop is a family owned and run business that started in Upper Hutt, New Zealand in 2016. We aim to be your local earth friendly, bulk food, and zero waste store; helping you and your family to live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. Our founder, Tanya, ensures each and every product and business are ethical, adhere to sustainable practices, and live by the same environmental principles as we do. In the summer of 2020/21 we fell in love with the building that used to serve as Hunting & Fishing Otaki. It was clear from day 1 this would be our second store. We opened softly on July 10th and are currently working towards a grand opening.
We could list hundreds of reasons we are passionate about sustainability, but the short story is we want to be part of the changes that need to happen worldwide to ensure our planet lasts for many generations to come.
WHAT WE STOCK:
Our products include: organic, natural, locally made, re-usable, recycled, zero waste, and bulk refillable products.
Materials we look for in our products: cotton, bamboo, wood, stainless steel, linen, silicone, hemp, and glass (just to name a few).
Our refillery opened in September 2019, and is constantly expanding to include a huge range of bulk items (see the full list here). A refillery is where you bring your containers from home and refill them from our bulk bins and voila, no packaging to landfill! We also have a small amount of organic fruit and vegetables along with dry goods, cleaning products, beans, oils, Epsom salts and dish wash liquid. If you can’t see what you want just add your request to our 'customer wish list' in store, or email us.
