18th Dec 2020 is our Final Day of Shipping Orders prior to Christmas.
Orders placed between 19 December 2020 - 10 January 2021 will be shipped from 11th January 2021.
Ecosprout Online Store will be open for business and shipping orders until Friday 18th December. Note: The reason for us not shipping orders over this Christmas New Year period is due to a few factors.
- Couriers are inundated with deliveries and we are unable to guarantee any pre-Christmas deliveries to customers after 18th Dec 2020.
- We found last year that many courier companies were delivering post-Christmas and customers where away on holiday – resulting in non-deliveries and lost packages.
- And my family and our Ecosprout team need to spend quality time with their families and friends.
A Note from Caroline…
With The Year 2020 coming to a close, a year which has been a very challenging one for many, we at Ecosprout wish you and your family a restful, safe and fun- filled Christmas Holiday Season.
We would like to thank all our loyal customers who time and time again support our small business in Mount Maunganui. Thank you for challenging us to produce and select the very best of whats on offer. With this in mind we strive to partner with brands who share similar ethics and who also strive to be more sustainable, to help and protect our land and environment and to share in the Joy of seeing what our support does to our most vulnerable global communities.
This year has been a good year for reflection and how we can do better. We have looked carefully at our stockist base, at our suppliers, our brand partnerships and have had to make some hard decisions to cut ties with long standing stockists or suppliers who now do not align with our morals and ethics.
2020 has certainly taught us all to look out for our pairs, to be kind and supportive to our fellow neighbours and to choose the path which feels right. We feel we are now more authentic to our brand and we have less clutter and noise! We feel strong and good about the future and can grow onwards knowing that our path ahead is good. This year we have partnered with some brands who are making huge differences in their communities. We at Ecosprout now give a % of sales to some of our manufacturers in both Indonesia and Ghana in Africa to help build better futures for there communities. Ecosprout also partners with suppliers who support brands such as BLABLA in Peru and our direct purchases of this sustainable brand helps give back to the communities in Peru.
Eco Distribution Ltd and Ecosprout has been growing gradually for over 12 years! I still wake up every morning and love what I do. I feel pure pleasure when I am able to help support New Mums on their journeys towards Motherhood, to help support their choices to build their nursery’s and I certainly feel blessed to share my knowledge. With no Baby Shows in Auckland this year I certainly missed the face to face contact with new Mums so I do hope we get to see you all in 2021.
Here’s hoping 2021 brings Joy and hope and a strong sense of community.
Stay Safe, Stay well and again thank you for helping us build Ecosprout into a brand you can trust.
Caroline & The Ecosprout Team
