Providing ecologically sustainable products and services, to supply you with the tools to reduce your impact on the environment whilst creating a healthier lifestyle for you and your family. Ecolateral was born out of a desire to become part of the solution to the future health of our vulnerable planet. Ian and Liddy Dolman were inspired into action by the simple Kenyan proverb -‘Treat the Earth well for it is not inherited from your parents, it is borrowed from your children.’ We are committed to providing our customers with a diverse range of earth friendly products and up to date, factual information and services that will assist in their individual and co-operative efforts to take greater care of our environment.
We believe that easy access to quality environmental products and services will encourage people to do things better at a time when the impact of climate change and our dwindling natural resources has never been at a more critical stage.
Continual research into sustainability provides us with up to date information from around the world on the latest products and methodologies to pass onto our customers.
Products are carefully selected to ensure they strictly support the sustainable use of our earth’s resources, while possessing quality and style for today’s modern living.
Our overriding reason for being is to educate, inspire and motivate as many people as possible to think about the world we live in and to deliver alternative earth friendly products and methods, which can be incorporated into the daily lives of our customers without compromising their desire for a comfortable and enjoyable lifestyle.
