As the world rages over disease and natural calamities, we are coming to terms with climate change. It’s no longer an isolated event of melting ice caps, disappearing glaciers, floods and droughts along with extinction of species. It’s an act of colossal damage to our habitat which is making it impossible to live.
As we speak today, a new intergovernmental climate report has been released which shows that the world will exceed the 1.5 degree Celsius temperature threshold by 2027, which means we are more close to a mass destruction due to climate change than we think. So random acts of tree plantations and changes in packaging isn’t enough to make an impact. We must undertake a radical change towards sustainable living, that is, sustainable shopping.
One of the effective ways to do this is by taking an oath of Sustainability in E-commerce. This is where we come in. We at EOLO- Earth Only Lives Once, truly believe in the concept of one green planet and for this we have created an all-inclusive green shopping e-commerce platform with a goal to bring made in India eco-friendly, organic, recycled products to reduce the carbon footprint.
E-commerce Sustainability Shortcomings
E-commerce in today’s world is stuck in a Draconian age which generates huge waste. While Sustainable E-commerce has caught up in recent years, the concept remains enclosed in packaging and replacing single use plastic from our processes. However, that’s just the tip of the iceberg, non-biodegradable packaging materials and plastic pollution is an in your face problem so we are paying heed to it.
But such a deep rooted problem needs a well thought out solution at all levels, especially at the local levels where the initiative is missing, especially in a developing nation like India.
- Here finding eco-friendly completely natural products generated in a chemical free process are hard to come by.
- Even harder it is to get it to platforms in an economical way and also finding big corporates to back it. Added to this the fierce competition (stemming from better collaboration, publicity, investment) with commercial e-commerce websites often drown the voices of sustainable E-commerce.
- While conventional e-commerce sites only work towards replacing single use plastic and not on going waste free, pollution free, the real agenda of green shopping gets compromised with green shipping.
Thus sustainability in e-commerce only veers to green shopping alternatives like bags, containers, cutleries and packaging materials.
Towards A One Stop Green E-commerce Site
The concept of Green Shopping isn’t green packaging or green products alone it is to reduce your carbon emission from your daily life. So, right from manufacturing to delivery everything should follow a pollution free waste free green protocol.
Even though this is a long journey, the EOLO Market e-commerce platform is a small step towards it which could become a giant leap for mankind in the future.
EOLO Market is aimed at ushering in a new era of green shopping where everything in your life can be carbon free – from the phone in your hand to the toothbrush you will be using in the morning.
With more and more people looking to go for a complete waste free carbon neutral life, most businesses are looking for such an all-inclusive green space in the e-commerce realm and customers are looking for the ultimate E-commerce site for Green Shopping. Customers are looking for green alternatives, for which they are constantly veering towards small start-ups which seek to fulfil that niche. However, most of the time that isn’t enough as they don’t get an all-inclusive one stop solution in a particular start-up.
EOLO Market – A sustainable Shopping E-commerce platform has envisioned bringing all this under one roof with our customer centric one stop solution. (find out more about us here https://eolomarket.com/about-eolo/)
