What is EcoJoe®?
An Unique Gift
We modernized St Joseph's image and made the packaging eye catching. EcoJoe® is a great and unique gift for friends who are selling their homes.
For real estate agents, it is also a great promotional gift for clients. We purposely left spaces on the back of our gift kits for your promotional marketing stickers. EcoJoe® will help you stand out from the crowd of realtors. It is a marketing purple cow.
Plastic St. Joseph statues release poisonous toxins into our water, soil and eco-system during its productions & breakdown.
Plastic is a by-product of crude oil. When plastic products are produced, toxic chemicals are released into our atmosphere. The production also takes away valuable water resources and poisons our grounds.
EcoJoe® is a great all natural alternative.
All natural, won’t harm the earth!
EcoJoe® is made with 100% clay, hand molded, fired in kiln and left out to air dry for 30-40 days.
The biodegradable packaging is printed with soy based ink on 100% recycled cardboard (gift kit) or stone paper (regular kit) that is made with 70% marble powder.
We also purchased carbon credits to offset the carbon produced during shipping and manufacturing.
The Story Behind EcoJoe®
Do you know that during the construction of a two-bedroom single family home, the process can produce enough waste to fill up one of the bedrooms that we just built?
We were just as shocked when we found out.
Real estate can be a very un-green industry, and our goal behind EcoJoe® is to raise awareness and open up dialogue without preaching to our consumers.
EcoJoe® is a green alternative to existing plastic St. Joseph products on the real estate market. St Joseph statues are often forgotten once the properties are sold, or the sellers simply forget where they buried him. As time goes on, plastic degrades and releases toxins that come back into our food through poisoning water sources, soil and our eco-system. Moreover, plastic is derived from crude oil. The production of plastic products release many toxic chemical by-products into our atmosphere, takes away valuable water resources and poisons our grounds.
EcoJoe® solves that ecological problem of plastic so that forgetting to dig Saint Joseph up leaving EcoJoe® in the ground to bless the next homeowners is perfectly okay.
EcoJoe® respects the Christian and Catholic traditions and promotes learning of Saint Joseph.
What is EcoJoe® Made of?
Each EcoJoe® is made with 100% clay, hand pressed into molds and then sent through the kiln firing process, left out to air-dry for 30-40 days. The product is 100% eco-friendly. Unlike its plastic counter parts, the process of making an EcoJoe® produces minimal and significantly less harmful by-product. Furthermore, when left buried in the ground, unlike plastic St Joseph statues, EcoJoe® does not leach harmful chemicals into our soils and water sources.
The packaging of EcoJoe® is also environmentally friendly. The regular EcoJoe’s packaging is printed with soy based ink onto stone paper, that is bio-degrable. The packaging itself is an one sheet that folds into the box packaging without using glue. The gift version’s packaging is printed with soy based ink on recycled paper.
