    Our Ideology: Promoting Environmental Responsibility

    At EcoLogical Method, our unwavering commitment to environmental responsibility is at the core of everything we do. It's not just a part of our mission; it's our mission. For this reason, we have chosen not to accept returns, as online retail returns have a profound negative impact on our environment.

    The statistics are eye-opening. In the United States alone, the process of reverse logistics, or returns, contributes to the generation of a staggering 5 billion pounds of landfill waste annually. The return journey involves trucks burning approximately 1.6 billion gallons of diesel fuel, resulting in a massive 15 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions. In 2017, a total of $380 billion worth of goods were returned, representing a substantial 11.3% of all purchases.

    We firmly believe that the culture of "excessive online shopping with free returns" is the real challenge here. Instead, we advocate for a more thoughtful and informed approach to online shopping. We encourage you to make well-researched purchasing decisions and resist the temptation of impulse buying. In essence, only buy what you truly need.

    Rest assured, all of our products undergo rigorous research and vetting to ensure that our community receives the highest quality and most sustainable products available. Nevertheless, we urge you to delve into your purchases before making them.

    We hold you, our valued customer, in high regard, and we aspire to collaborate with you on the journey towards consuming less and choosing mindfully. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at info@ecologicalmethod.com.
