As we were all stuck at home during the height of the pandemic, the founders Sara and Ervin realized just how heavily they – and everyone else – relied on food delivery services and single-use plastics. Convenience from deliveries, grocery shopping, and other merchandise comes with a far greater price, and it all comes at the expense of our planet. Our reliance on convenience is contributing to record-breaking levels of pollution, food chains full of microplastics, and marine wildlife that is diminishing at an unimaginable rate. We knew there had to be a better way to enjoy everyday goods and services while committing to real-world change. Our founders were both big fans of eco-conscious living and wanted to turn their beliefs into a fully-fledged business that inspired others to start their own eco-friendly journey and commit to real-world change – and so EcoCentric was born.

We were committed to tackling the high number of single-use plastic and other one-time-use materials used for takeout containers, product packaging, and grocery plastic bags– without making customers compromise. EcoCentric was created with the goal of providing a waste-free alternative to single-use plastic that would allow consumers to say goodbye to takeout guilt and hello to a greener, more sustainable way of living. From that initial idea, an entire movement was created. Today, we work hard to raise awareness of the brilliant ethical alternatives and earth-friendly products and services across the UAE that are now sold in EcoCentric’s Categories: Eco Takeout, Eco Grocery, and Eco Shop. But it doesn’t end there! There’s still so much work to do to make eco-friendly reusable packaging the norm across all industries and we want you to be right there with us on the journey.

Our passion for sustainability got EcoCentric off the ground and will continue to propel us forward in everything we do in the future.  We know that we’ll never stop trying to come up with innovative and functional solutions to solve the packaging crisis, so we can’t wait to see what else is in store for EcoCentric. Together, we can create a plastic-free future that builds a greener world for everyone.
