Green Hull business celebrates extended Oxfam listing

Oxfam additions Feb 2015Directors at leading Hull based ethical cleaning and laundry products company Bio-D are celebrating after gaining additional listings in Oxfam.

The addition of Furniture Polish and Lime and Aloe Vera Sanitising Hand Wash brings the number of Bio-D lines in Oxfam to 10.

The complete range includes Bio-D’s environmentally responsible cleaning products, including washing up liquid, multi surface cleaner, laundry liquid, fabric conditioner and toilet cleaner that are available in over Oxfam stores from Guernsey to Glasgow.

The price of the Furniture Polish is £3.79 for a 500ml spray bottle and the Hand Wash is £3.99 for 500ml.

Bio-D’s Sales and Marketing Director Sara Holtby is delighted with the business gain and said; “Oxfam and Bio-D share common values in that both businesses want to inspire people to make the world a better place and this listing is an important step towards achieving our mutual goals.”

New distributor to drive sales as Co-op highlights green growth

We’re delighted to report that we’ve just appointed a new distributor in a bid to drive sales.

Staffordshire based natural products specialist Tree of Life was selected by Bio-D Directors Sara Holtby and Lloyd Atkin following a strategic sales review a year after they bought the business from founder Mike Barwell.

Managing Director Lloyd Atkin outlined the rationale for the appointment; “We have spent the last year undertaking a thorough review of the business and are now in a position to drive sales of our biodegradable products forward.  We know from the Co-op’s report on Ethical Consumerism that expenditure on green goods and services grew 18 per cent over the past two years despite the economic downturn and thought that the time was right to mount a sales campaign.”

Tree of Life supplies over 1100 health food shops and independent retailers and will be selling over 30 Bio-D lines from later this month – look out for them in your local store.

We’re naturally delighted with the listing as we share common values in that both businesses want to inspire people to make the world a better place and this listing is an important step towards achieving our mutual goals.

Oxfam seem pleased too – Oxfam GB’s Buying Manager Inma Andres said; “Oxfam has chosen to list Bio-D products as they strongly fit the ethos of the everyday range in which they sit. It was important for us to offer our customers everyday essential products that are natural and biodegradable and that they can buy from their local Oxfam shop all year round”.

Check out your nearest Oxfam or independent retailer and help us to help safeguard the environment.  You have nothing to lose, the earth has everything to gain.

Sara and Lloyd
