It’s been champagne and smiles all round at Ecoegg HQ lately. The reason? We have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation!
Every year, Her Majesty The Queen recognises the most innovative businesses in the UK with her award. It’s the biggest business award you can win, and we’re absolutely thrilled to be one of the handful of businesses in the country chosen this year.
Whilst the award is for our overall business, we have a feeling that the Laundry Egg was one of the main reasons Ecoegg was chosen. This was our first ever product. It’s a money-saving, eco-friendly alternative to chemical washing detergent which is great for people with sensitive skin. Since we launched it seven years ago, we’ve sold well over 1.5 million Laundry Eggs in 34 countries around the world. In those seven years we’ve also gone on to develop a large range of eco-friendly, innovative cleaning, laundry and household products. And we’re growing fast – look out for six (six!) brand new products launching on QVC UK over the next couple of months.
It couldn’t have been better timing when I received the email to tell us we had won; I was with my Dad at the time. Both my Mum and Dad have always been huge supporters of Ecoegg (my Dad is the very talented carpenter behind all of the props we use on TV throughout the world to demonstrate our products). My Dad and I both had a tear in our eye when the news came through. The email was written in very official language: “I am delighted to inform you that Her Majesty The Queen has been graciously pleased to approve the Prime Minister’s recommendation that your organisation should receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation this year”.
But the best bit about winning the award is that my fiancée and I had the pleasure of going to Buckingham Palace last month to meet Her Majesty The Queen for the official ceremony. It was a very regal affair and it was such a thrill to walk through the main gates of Buckingham Palace and through into the opulent State Rooms for the reception. The Queen, Prince Phillip and Princess Anne were all there. It was a pleasure to meet her and a day I will always remember.
We couldn’t be more proud to win this prestigious award and to celebrate this huge milestone in Ecoegg’s history, we have put together the best Today’s Special Value offer we’ve ever brought to QVC! On Monday 26th September we will be bringing you an offer on our Hard Surface Cleaner.
Despite only launching last year, our Hard Surface Cleaner is already one of our most popular products and it’s easy to see why! Suitable for use on all hard surfaces, it tackles tough, ground-in dirt, grease and grime with very little elbow-grease and using no harsh chemicals. If you’ve not tried it yet, I know you’ll love it – and Monday is a great time to get involved since this offer is such great value.
We couldn’t have achieved such a prestigious award without the support of our customers, so it’s only right we give you something back in return – and this very special Today’s Special Value offer is our way of saying “thank you”!
So please join us on QVC at midnight and throughout the day on Monday 26th September to see what’s new and help us celebrate!
Rob Knight, Managing Director, Ecoegg
