About Beco

A little revolution now and then is a good thing. How we live, what we buy and what we throw away has ripple effects on the world around us. Therefore, we are dedicated to eco-friendly and biodegradable alternatives you just can’t wait to use in your home. For the past few years, we’ve been a company with strong beliefs about the rights of people and planet. We believe that a company’s values are as important as the products it makes. We know that plant-based products can provide the efficacy you are looking for, and that products designed from compostable plant-based ingredients are a more sustainable option than ingredients made from plastic. We believe that waste, is well… a waste. It’s why we offer end to end sustainability – from raw material sourcing to manufacturing processes to packaging to delivery to disposal of the used product. We have a lot of beliefs, but the biggest one is doing things right, being trustworthy, positive and straightforward.
