ATTENTION! Important news for stockists of Ecover and Method

Ecover and Method have a dirty secret – they are now linked to animal testing!

We’re asking all stockists to drop Ecover and Method products from their range now they are owned by SC Johnson, one of the biggest multinational household product manufacturers in the world, who openly admit to selling products developed using animals.  They also own many other animal-tested brands including Duck, Glade, Pledge and Mr Muscle.

Customer outrage shows news will affect sales.

This campaign has got off to a fantastic start. Now it’s crucial that we send an even stronger message to SC Johnson via the UK’s stockists of Ecover and Method products.

Who’s taken the pledge to ditch Ecover and Method?

So far, 13 stockists have taken Ecover and Method products from their shelves. If you know a retailer/stockist we should approach please let us know. Feel free to speak with them yourself first to find out if they would like to know more.

Valley Organics Workers’ Co-op provides a large range of fresh produce, whole foods, prepared foods, confectionary, chilled and frozen foods, household and body care products. All fresh produce is either certified organic or from local growers whose growing methods are approved.  Most other products are organic but the shop does stock some non-organic products where there is no organic alternative.
One of our strongest reasons for being is our ethics - we sacked Solgar when they were owned by an American defence company, we parted company with Pukka Teas when they sold out to Unilever, and Ecover is going the same way now they are owned by SC Johnson.

“If I want to make a difference for my customers I need to know that the brands I stock uphold the ethics and principles that make Indigo Wholefoods different.  By selling the Ecover and Method brands to SC Johnson - a company involved in animal testing, People Against Dirty no longer uphold these ethics and principles and I can no longer justify stocking their products.  At Indigo Wholefoods principles come before profit.”
George Howell, Indigo Wholefoods, Birmingham

“I really hope that Ecover can use their skills to effect change throughout all of SC Johnson to improve the ethics of the whole company. Until there is concrete proof of that however Naked Larder will no longer be stocking Ecover products.”
