New eco marketplace launched that connects green shoppers with independent vendors.

Comments Off on New eco marketplace launched that connects green shoppers with independent vendors.

Going green just got easier. The newly launched “green” goods marketplace known as “eco3P.com” makes environmental and socially positive products more accessible to everyone. The company is guided by the triple bottom line principal of people, planet and profit, hence the “3P’s”, as it contributes a % of its revenue to environmental and social causes. At eco3P, consumers can discover the latest eco-friendly products, buy directly from responsible sellers and help contribute to a sustainable planet.

eco3P’s platform provides a centralized hub for vendors giving them more exposure than their standalone sites and makes it easier for eco-conscious shoppers to find products that they are looking for. Vendors set up virtual storefronts on eco3P to post their products and tell shoppers about their company/product. Registration is not required to purchase items and buyers and sellers complete the entire interaction independently.
What’s different about eco3P compared to other fixed-priced and auction sites are that there are no fees. The company uses the popular “freemium” business model and only charges a fee for additional value added services. Says Mikael Thakur, founder of the company: “We didn’t want to charge our user’s fees as it results in lower margins for our vendors and higher priced items for our customers. Our goal is to get consumers accustomed to buying social and environmentally positive products and for our vendors to keep their earnings and possibly use it to churn out even more innovative eco friendly products. In the end, everyone wins, this is our “3P” initiative.”

Another difference is that just by shopping on eco3P you are contributing to a greener planet. For every $1 dollar spent on products listed by sellers, eco3P will help conserve 10 sq2 feet of rainforest. eco3P strives to make all of its’ stakeholders partners in environmental stewardship.
Whether you are looking to buy or sell a solar powered knapsack, sustainable furniture, or fair trade goods, eco3P.com is your eco-marketplace.
