Interview with EcoStadt Technologies

Left Coast Wholesale is pleased to work together with EcoStadt Technologies to bring their organic, sustainable neem-based products to our clients and their customers. To learn more about what this company is all about, and how products we offer from them – such as EcoWorks EC - we reached out to the owners for a quick conversation.

LCW: Can you tell us a little bit about EcoStadt?

ES: We are a company with a very strong foundation in natural as well as sustainable plant production and protection products. In order to ensure environmentally responsible products, our products are manufactured from resources with the lowest possible carbon footprint. We believe that sustainable plant care products and practices are vital for socially responsible and profitable plant production.

LCW: What types of products do you manufacture?

ES: At EcoStadt Technologies, we focus on creating products that are sustainable in their most fundamental form. Whenever it comes to organic products, they must be sustainable in order for them to impact the market at scale. There is no point in developing an organic product that is not sustainable in its production methods.

LCW: What production methods do you mean? Can you tell us how EcoStadt produces their products in a sustainable way?

ES: Absolutely. A product must be sustainable in 3 ways for us to produce it; The raw materials used in the product must be steadily and responsibly sourced, our production process and methods must be energy efficient, and  the product should displace the use of synthetic chemicals and the energy it takes to make them

LCW: Are all your products produced this way, from start to finish?

ES: Yes, definitely. We are pleased to say all of these points apply to all of our products. We use raw materials from the neem tree that are sourced from within the region of our production facility. The neem tree is part of an important part of our commitment to sustainability; neem trees are not cultivated plants, meaning they usually are not nourished with any energy-intensive materials like fertilizers or a formal, expensive watering arrangement like drip irrigation. Instead the neem tree grows in arid conditions with very little water from a natural source, usually by the means of rainfall or existing ground water. Overall, neem is a very low energy crop that require little to no attention.

Our production facility is powered by sustainable power sources such as wind and solar. Combine this with the fact that neem trees are a great carbon sequestration source, it allows our products and production processes to be completely carbon neutral.

LCW: That sounds like a wonderful commitment to sustainability and ethical cultivation. We’re really happy to be able to carry your brand so our clients have access to such sustainable products for their grow. Thank you!

This is why pest management in greenhouses is vital to keeping your greenhouse plants healthy, especially if you’re sharing seedlings or starting cuttings for your landscape.
