EKOTEX PRESS RELEASE – BWY SHOP
Hi everyone and welcome to the Ekotex Yoga family!
Ekotex Yoga is a family business established in Edinburgh in 2017, by Abbie Sweet.
We aim to combine high quality and affordable products with respect for both the environment and human rights. In our shop, you will find Ethical, Eco-friendly, High-quality yoga equipment.
Our business is part of our family, so we care very much about our reliability and level of service. The majority of our products are made with organic and recycled materials; we have banned plastic wrapping and use only recycled paper.
Social sustainability is as important as environmental sustainability for us. That’s why from April 2020 all our cotton goods have a GOTS certification which ensures everyone who works on our products is paid fairly and works in a safe environment.
The Coronavirus lockdown is having quite an impact on us. But we are grateful that as an online retailer, we can continue serving customers throughout this time. We have experienced delays due to lockdown in the countries where our suppliers are based, but we realised that a crisis could also be a creative time. We have started producing some of our products in the UK; one of our main goals since the beginning of our path. This seemed out of reach a few weeks ago. You can read more about our opening hours and delivery times here.
We know this is a challenging time for the teaching community, and we are trying to support local businesses and yoga teachers; with an online directory of independent yoga teachers and our affiliate scheme.
We want you to know how delighted and excited we are to start this new adventure with the BWY, and to have the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful community!
As a BWY member, you will be able to buy our products at an exclusive discount of up to 50% off. Just go to shop.bwy.org.uk, login and start choosing your favourite yoga equipment!
We hope this will be the start of a long and fruitful collaboration.
The Ekotex Yoga Team
