Eco Turtle dispenser raises money for local charity

Delphis Eco launches ‘Eco Turtle refill station’ at Wandsworth Oasis Charity Shop in Battersea to mark start of Green Office Week

 

Delphis Eco is delighted to launch its new Eco Turtle refill station at Wandsworth Oasis Charity Shop, a local charity that supports local people. Delphis Eco is an international but locally based company which makes eco friendly cleaning products.

 

Delphis Eco is excited by this new concept of promoting sustainability and the chance to work with other local businesses in the Battersea area. Gill Perkins, CEO of the charity shop chain, said, “We are always looking for creative ways to raise additional funds for local people.  We are also committed to recycling and reuse, so launching the Eco Turtle makes perfect sense for us.”

Jane Ellison the local MP for Battersea, Balham and Wandsworth arrived this morning for the launch at the Wandsworth branch of the Oasis store to see the Eco Turtle in action. Jane said, “This is a fabulous example of a local company working with a local charity to raise awareness about the importance of reuse and recycling whilst raising money for the charity.  I wish the enterprise every success.”    

 

The Eco Turtle Project was developed by a group of 8 year old school children at Ashley C of E Primary School, Surrey. The aim was to design a system where their parents could access ecological cleaning products for the home and raise money for the school, whilst helping the environment. In addition, the pupils would choose how to spend the revenue.

 

“The Eco Turtle refill station teaches children about the environmental benefits of recycling and reusing. In addition, the school generates a much needed revenue stream.” Richard Dunne, Head of Ashley C of E Primary School, Surrey.

 

Seeing the success in schools Delphis Eco looked for a new venture and charity shops seemed the obvious next step to take. “The Eco Turtle refill station gives local communities access to great eco friendly cleaning products, at a discount to the high street. The money stays in the community and the empty bottles are reused and reused. We all need to be more sustainable and charity shops are going to play an increasingly important role.” Mark Jankovich, Chief Exec.
