Describe your business.
We are not your everyday retail shop. Eco Logical is dedicated to providing customers with all things fair trade, sustainable, local and handmade. Fair trade is a market-based approach to alleviating global poverty and promoting sustainability. It aims to educate and empower disadvantaged producers and connect them to a market, so they too can participate in global trade. By buying fair trade products, you can be sure that the artisans are being compensated fairly for their work, and are working in safe conditions.
Upon entering the store, you are transported to another part of the world. We’ve had customers say that they feel like they are shopping while on vacation somewhere far, far away. From jewelry, accessories, clothing, bags, some décor, kids’ toys, coffee and treats…we believe that we have a little something for everyone!
Why is your staff the best in the business?
Our staff is the friendliest and most knowledgeable in the land. We can help you find the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for person, or even that crazy aunt of yours.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Not only do we get to offer unique items to our customers, but we also get to be a part of the global movement that is fair trade. It is a great feeling knowing that we are actively making a difference in the lives of others around the world.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
Cozmic Café in Placerville tops the charts for us. Everything is fresh and organic…and of course delicious. Did we mention that it was delicious? Because it’s really delicious.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
Being outside is where we like to Zen-out. Whether it’s just being at home in the garden or out hiking, nature is the best medicine for us.
Do you know that our editorial is not paid for, nor can it be purchased? In fact, our Introducing and Dine reviews are not paid advertisements. If you’d like your business profiled, please email Megan Wiskus at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we determine when your business will be featured, we will contact you to schedule a time to come out and take a photograph. Thank you!
