In 2018 Anya, Amy, Becky and Gabriela a group of friends working together in Leeds spoke about how they felt similarly frustrated by the growing plastic crisis. The more they thought about it, the more plastic they could see and their growing sense of anxiety grow, so theyset out to make plastic history.
After realising they wanted to be part of the solution, not the problemthey started looking for ways to reduce their own plastic use and cut everyday single-use household plastics out of their lives, but found it a real struggle.
Either the plastic-free alternatives didn’t exist, or they weren’t truly plastic-free, biodegradable or compostable. With all the lack of choice and misinformation around, they realised that if they found it hard work, other people probably did too. So combining their passion with their individual skills and a lot of hard work EcoVibe was born, an honest place people could easily find truly eco-friendly alternatives.
