“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.” – Robert Swan

Ekobox was born from a passion for PPE and a deep respect for the environment

We felt that although UK businesses are making progressive strides towards sustainability and reducing their negative impacts on the environment there still remains an enormous problem around the safe, ethical and sustainable disposal of workplace PPE compounded by the continuous use of environmentally damaging PPE products.

Furthermore we could not find a platform where users could purchase PPE and supplies that where specifically sourced based on their eco credentials. Our online shop filled this gap and as a business we only work with and offer products that fit our core values of driving sustainability and reducing environmental impact.  Ekobox will continue to lead the way in promoting innovative new products, sourced ethically from the right manufacturers and suppliers with the same outlook as ourselves. 

Ekobox Core Values


This drives every decision and action we undertake


We strive to engage and collaborate on a local level


We never stop asking how we can do things better


Our goal is in protecting this for future generations

ekobox in the community

We thrive to help our local community

We think supporting the people and businesses around you is important so we try and involve and support the North East. 

Local manufacturing

We ensure that both our wooden and plastic boxes are manufactured here in the North East by local business and even schools who share our sustainable outlook.

Donations made

We know that every piece of PPE cannot be carbon neutral so where we can’t source the ideal product we offset this with a donation to our chosen eco charities.  We also donate 1% of every purchase to Stripes climate program.

Re-purposing waste

We have some really neat uses for waste PPE that is not quite ready for its last journey. We re-purpose as much as possible to benefit the people around us, find out more on our social pages.
