The Access Eco Win/Win
March, 2021 Update:
In the 1990s, we set out to make “The Access Eco Win/Win” a reality. The partners mentioned below were my mother, Jolene and I.
Originally, we achieved our goals and our livelihoods as Manufacturer’s Representatives, working with eco & ethically focused companies that made a wide range of products in North America. These products ranged from ecofriendly t-shirts printed with veggie inks, Union Made industrial hemp hats, custom organic cotton & hemp bags, hemp “frisbees” with your logo on them, packs & totes and tree-free paper products of every sort, including custom laser engraved writing pens made with sustainably grown wood that used non-toxic inks. The list went on.
Since the 1990s, thankfully “Eco” and “Green” products have gained “market-share” if you will, in all aspects of our economies and lives. Mission successful! While doing our part over the decades, Access Eco gradually evolved into the specialized eco branding private label and promotional products company that you see today.
Thank you for being a part of this mission!

“Promoting eco and ethically focused alternatives since 1993”
For decades, the partners at Access Eco have worked closely with a range of eco and ethically focused North American manufacturers. It is a unique relationship in that we have grown with our manufacturers over the years. In many cases, this has allowed us to evolve within the framework of their product lines, pricing, capabilities and services.
Our mission is simple and slightly activist: to increase the use of sustainable and renewable methods and materials, and to support innovative American manufacturing, capabilities and services.
Public exposure to products made with environmentally sustainable methods and materials, manufactured in non-sweatshop conditions, and developed without animal testing or the misuse of chemicals is, in effect, exposure to these very real issues. At the same time, this fosters an awareness of the alternatives available to consumers and the business community, while offering a solution to those issues. We see this as the ultimate win/win.
Moreover, we understand that Earth Friendly products have a higher cost for many reasons. Therefore, in addition to excellent quality, we set our prices to be as competitive as possible with non-eco made products and sweatshop labor.
Value comes in many forms. Our products are of excellent quality and are made with the best resources available. The value in having your name and logo branded on an environmentally sustainable and people friendly product goes a long way in terms of what kind of message you’re conveying. We see it as promoting for the long term.
If we don’t have it, or can’t make it, we will help you find out who can – in the most earth friendly way possible. We want you to keep it eco!
