Ecopia promotes eco friendly products
Ecopia’s main focus is to promote genuine green products that will have minimal impact on the environment.
We concentrate on promoting products that aid in reducing greenhouse gases and water conservation devices like grey water diverters, rain water collectors, water timers and low flow shower heads.
Another important aspect of conservation is using recycled products like recycled paper products and other innovative recycled product like our fly swatter made from reclaimed fencing wire and fly screen mesh. Ecopia fly swatters are made from recycled mesh and fencing wire, they are very tough and guaranteed to last for many years.
In order to reduce toxic waste we advocate the the use of non-toxic household cleaners and pest control methods.
Australia is the driest continent yet we continue to waste water
It's easy to save water. For watering the garden try installing a simple mechanical timer to shut the water off after a while, even when hand-watering, then you can tell how much water was used. Save the bath and laundry water for the garden too, a collapsible bucket is ideal for this, just store it in the bathroom or laundry cabinet. Install a rain diverter on a gutter down pipe to divert rainwater from the roof to the garden, or store it in rainwater tank for later use. A grey-water diverter can be installed under the laundry basin to divert grey water to the garden.
clean water is our most precious resource

Eco pest control methods avoid using harmful chemicals
Natural insect deterrents such as sandalwood, eucalyptus and citronella are well suited for use around the home to deter pesky mozzies and flying insects. Sandalwood sticks come in various sizes and burning times and can be extinguished for relighting at a later time. You can even just leave a few fresh sticks in closets to deter bugs as they emit a gentle scent of sandalwood.
The Envirosafe flytraps are very effective, they attract flies to a solution in a container that traps them inside. The baits are non-toxic and made from food grade ingredients. Place one in the garden and you will soon see the difference, but it does generate a strong smell to attract the flies so keep it a few meters away from the living areas.

eco pest control is the safe and natural method

About 18 million trees are cut down in Australia every year to make wood chips, pulp and paper
Any recycling of paper will go a long way to preserve forests and the many native animal and plant species that live in them. Printing and paper production is detrimental to the environment. Our oceans, waterways and their inhabitants are being polluted and damaged by exposure to toxic paper mill effluent & printer waste, which is a significant contributor to global warming. Do your bit to reduce the environmental damage by using recycled 100% environmentally friendly greetings and gift cards. They are carbon neutral. These eco friendly greetings cards are made in Australia on 100% post-consumer recycled paper with vegetable ink, but just as important is the fact that Earth Greetings operates in a totally sustainable fashion, considering the impact on the earth in every step of the production process in order to preserve our forests and wildlife.

trees are natural air filters
Eco friendly cleaning products are non-toxic natural products that will not pollute the home environment.
Synthetic cleaners and aerosol sprays can pollute the air in average home to levels found on a busy city street.
The toxic residues adhere to surfaces for months and years causing various chronic ailments. Natural detergents and dish-washing liquids don’t contain harsh chemicals that pose a hazard to human health or the environment. Possibly the best eco friendly cleaners are micro-fiber cleaning mitts and cloths, you can use the micro-fiber mitts with just water to clean just about anything, add a little eco friendly cleaning solution for stubborn spots.
The easiest eco friendly alternative is to avoid using harsh detergents that pollute, most household cleaning can be done using biodegradable detergents and do try micro-fiber cloths as they really will do the job.
eco friendly products reduce global warming

 

LED lights are really eco friendly, they can reduce your lighting bill by 80%.
They are the most energy-saving lights and are longer lasting than compact fluorescent lights, commonly called a CFL.
The latest SMD LEDs are a relatively new technology, producing a lot of light, they consume very little electricity and are useful for spotlights, reading lights and down lights. The latest technology LEDs can can produce different shades of light; the most popular is 'warm white' because it most closely resembles the colour of a tungsten filament globe. A lot has been said about mercury used in CFL lights so its welcoming to know that LED lights are solid state , not requiring internal gaseous mixtures to produce light.
