Leading Circular Economy of Up-cycled Planter Boxes

Locally Crafted is proud to partner with and welcomes one of our newest members, Eco-

Wick Australia. Eco-Wick’s views of a circular cooperative economy and passion for

permaculture is reflected throughout the business and its products. Eco-Wick is based in

Melbourne, Australia.




The team at Eco-Wick (Julian, Tilly and Gali) have thought hard about the business and its

products. Ecological and social impacts are at the forefront of design, resulting in unique,

high quality, eco-friendly wicking beds and self-watering planters. The products can be used for indoor or outdoor use, for ornamental and edible plants. Eco-Wick’s products can be found at www.eco-wick.com.au.

Eco-Wick is at the forefront in business structure and thinking, setting a standard for others to take note. Ingraining values on a circular economy, coupled with ecological and social impacts within business and product design is a standard all businesses should make

mandatory. Not just within one's business, within a supply chain as a whole. Especially in the current market, where weakness in the economy regarding local production has resulted in Australia’s high reliance on imports, negatively impacting the economy and increasing the global carbon footprint. It shows a responsibility each business has economically, in terms of monetary flow throughout the local market and environment valuation. Incorporating this into a business is usually seen at a tier 1 business level, implemented via expertise through education and business learning. It reflects the level that Eco-Wick conducts itself and the impacts companies can have, whether large or small.

Eco-Wick has gone one step further, incorporating circular economy and environmental

impacts to its entire supply chain, from sourcing, production, product use, and the end of the products life cycle either in re-use or finalized by being biodegradable. Eco-Wick’s products are manufactured from approximately 90% up-cycled materials. While recycling is good, using up-cycled materials for manufacturing is better, as again it reduces the carbon

footprint.

Eco-Wick is a smart, well thought out company, with clever design and unique products. It is easily apparent from the surface to view where they currently stand and conduct themselves as a business. Others should take note and do similar, to progress to a more sophisticated and stronger local economy and environment.
