From the Desk ...



Here at Ecospecifier Global we see and read about new products every day and as we continue the Journey of the ‘New Industrial Revolution’ it is up-lifting to see how manufacturers are beginning to change their mindset and respond to the growing need for products that are having less impact on the planet and people. What a relief!

THANK-YOU!

This November, Ecospecifier Global would like to CONGRATULATE ALL MANUFACTURERS that are listed on ecospecifier.com.au for their dedication and commitment to this new evolution. And of course, to all other manufacturers around the globe making sustainable changes to their products that are not yet listed on ecospecifier.com.au

You, the ‘Manufacturers for a Healthy Planet and People’ are the HEROES of our lifestyles, bringing to us products that we know when we consciously choose them, are having less impact on ourselves and mother earth.

THANK-YOU from all the team at Ecospecifier Global.

Enjoy your November Ecospecifier Global issue. Be Healthy and Enjoy Life!

Mary-Lou Kelly CEO
