<p>Since initial product launch in late 2011, Eco & More is experiencing rapid expansion and cross over from expat market to Chinese consumer market.
Our goal to be the leader of green cleaning products in China and to offer EVERYONE a choice of using plant-based products that are highly effective and does not have to cost the earth! </p>
We are in the process of formulating and manufacturing China's first Eco Cert organic baby products and need funds to complete certification process.
One of the main supermarket chains we are involved with in Shanghai is expanding to Beijing and beyond this year and would like to take Eco & More with them.
We need capital for nationa logistics management and a base in Beijing this year.
Apart from over 40 retail and supermarket distribution chanels in Shanghai, we currently sell Eco & More products directly online from weibo, yihaodian, taobao and our own website: www.eco-more.com. With sufficient funding, we would like to up the online marketing and expand our only direct sales revenue by 500% this year.
spending per month is reasonable. currently at only 150,000 RMB
just one hopefully for the next two years and after that it will be a round of funding to build our own factory.
Expats in Shanghai who understands and seeks green cleaning and personal care products previously unavailable in China.

Our customers mainly, expats in China, returning Chinese with high education and income level, new mothers and families with young children who suffer from allergies, clinics and maternity care centers, "green" boutique hotels, environmentalists and eventually EVERYONE!
LOGISTICS! warehousing and deliveries are currently not managed effeciently.
INCREASE SKU: Most our customer are happy returning customer and we habitually get emails saying a friend has recommended Eco & More etc. However, because we are a small start up, we are not able to offer a wide range of products and many customers repeatedly ask for more products with more choices for smells, etc.

ecover from belgium who are an inferior product in many ways, costs more and are not marketing locally.
jurlique who only compete with our personal care range but does not offer home care or baby care. again they are much more costly and do not have a local presence.
Green fast moving consumer product with no local competition and proven sales record needs funding for rapid nation wide expansion and product developemnt.
We can't make products fast enough at the moment! All our current 40 distributors are awaiting out Eco Certified baby range and everything we make we make well and the sale figures reflect our customer royalty.
change the world > find an everyday need that everyone can relate to > make the best "eco" cleaning products we know how at the most resonable price we can > make it available at as many places as we can > reach out to the community to educate and create interest > streamline logistic and management > reinvest in research and development > keep making more great products that more people come back for!
We use the latest german energineer plant based surfactants instead of harsh chemicals in cleaning products.
we use essential oil to scent and naturally disinfect rather than artificial dyes and perfumes.
we use sustainable package design without the use of extra labels and toxic glues.
we are made locally to reduce carbon footprint for transportation.
we are made locally to be more cost effective.
we are made locally to engage our local community
we have a retail showroom and we attend majoy green events in shanghai to give our products a name and face people can trust.
And because we are made locally, we understand the needs of our consumer far better than another imported big brand trying to sell the chinese people another overpriced product!
are you trying to steal my project?
what has been proven is that the chinese consumer is hungry for a greener better product.
they are smarter than they seem. they ARE interested in green products that are better for them and better the environment.
they DO catch on really quickly.
they ARE loyal customer who will return to the same brand.
they DO care about pricing but they ALSO care about quality because they can now for the first time in generations, afford quality.
Increase SKUs, product development, hire upper management, logistics, expand to other parts of China.
