One of our 2020 Young Enterprise companies, Ecobalm, have been active during the lockdown commencing presales to raise funds for their start up endeavour.
The company consists of Head Boy Josh Earnshaw and three Prefects: Mackenzie Annett, Hamish Stayt and Jack Blakemore. The boys are looking to ‘disrupt the New Zealand cosmetic market’ by offering a 100% biodegradable lip balm.
Ecobalm, a sustainable alternative, has already amassed a considerable community presence with the start up company having over 400 followers on Instagram, over 400 likes on Facebook and a professional website with a fully functioning online payment system. After just 72 hours of Ecobalm being open for preorders, over 200 units were sold. The company has begun production of their first 1000 tubes and expects them to be ready for filling and distribution to customers by June.
If you would like to support their presale and help them raise funds, you can order some Ecobalm through their website below.
Ecobalm are appreciative of the support given by local business Huttons Honey.
