Vancouver, British Columbia, June 16, 2023 — Today, Tru Earth, the award winning global household cleaning product company committed to eradicating single-use and short-lived plastic in the home, announced it has acquired Net Zero Co., creators and sellers of reusable household products online. The move marks a key milestone in Tru Earth’s growth strategy to make easy, effective, eco-conscious household products accessible to consumers through the launch of www.EcoCollective.Earth, an online marketplace, which will feature Net-Zero Co’s products. The acquisition was catalyzed by Net Zero Founder, Amy Kim’s, decision to attend the University of Victoria to obtain her degree in Psychology.
“Net Zero has been a passion of mine for years so I’m proud that it can continue to grow under the stewardship of Tru Earth and the Eco Collective while I continue my educational journey,” mentions Kim. “I’ve always valued Shannon’s advice and am excited to work with her and the Eco-Collective team on a deeper level.”
Net Zero’s products are already sold at the Eco-Collective, Tru Earth’s brick-and-mortar stores located in Vancouver and Toronto, alongside products from Tru Earth and Basic Goods Trading Company, an affordable eco-conscious household goods provider. The Eco-Collective online marketplace has launched with these two sister brands of Tru Earth with more brands to join.
“I’ve been a longtime admirer of what Amy and her team are doing. The Eco-Collective was created to give smaller companies, like Net Zero, the chance to shine because we believe many small hinges swing big doors,” says Shannon O’Reilly, Founder of Basic Goods Trading Company and Eco-Collective by Tru Earth. “We are excited to see Net-Zero join the Tru Earth family, building off of the launches of our Eco Collective stores to diversify our offerings online.”
