ECOdept was created by Mark and Ruth Hodierne in May 2014 whilst holiday on the beautiful Greek island of Santorini. Despite the eye watering cost, our “luxury” suite was rather more basic than anticipated. The alarming quality of the towels provided didn’t come close to meeting the demands of showers, beaches and days out and about exploring the island. And out of this came our idea for ECOdept – a company that creates quality products for travellers and adventurers worldwide … starting with a towel!!
ECOdept is a little company – the two of us and some talented part-timers who help us – and that’s how it’s going to stay. The plan is to have just a few brilliant products and great customer service.
Having the best product is an important starting point, but this is by no means sufficient. ECOdept believes in treading lightly on our planet. We design products that are kind on our environment and our resources. And we’ve gone further by committing to fund the work of The Nature Conservancy — the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people.
Our ambition is to have a lot of fun running a small, but successful business that makes a real difference in our world … and we invite you to support us!
Mark and Ruth Hodierne live in the beautiful seaside town of Eastbourne on the South Coast of England. They enjoy exploring the South Downs and the Ashdown Forest with their two children Georgia and Harry, and their mischievous Yellow Labrador, Piper.
