happy christmas from BecoThings!

christmas is finally here, bringing about the end of another year and boy, what a busy one it’s been for BecoThings! from launching exciting new products to winning awards, 2009 has been a great [and somewhat hectic!] year for us. in the true style of christmas tv we thought we’d bring you a ‘best of BecoThings 2009’ round-up… so grab a mince pie and some egg nog and read on…

january.
we kicked off the year to a flying start with the launch of the BecoPotty, the eco-friendly potty. made from recycled waste plant material, the BecoPotty is the eco-friendly way to potty train and is not only kind on your little one, but also kind on the environment. along with our printed cardboard BecoHangers, it was launched into jo jo maman bebe. january also saw the start of the [now infamous] BecoBlog, bringing you all the latest BecoThings news, as well as articles on all our best eco-friendly finds

february.
in february we dipped our paws and hooves even further into the world wide web and joined twitter. one of the first things we announced was the launch of our Fibre Hanger. made from our unique plant fibre material, the Fibre Hanger is designed to replace standard plastic hangers that fill up landfill sites, damaging our environment. we also twittered away about eco news and views… as well as the teddy and dog’s continuous chocolate eating!

march.
it was time for the teddy to don his tool belt in march to get our stand designed and built for the harrogate nursery show. thankfully he emerged unscathed from all the sawing and hammering and was able to accompany the giraffe and elephant to the show where our range of BecoThings products got a great reception. once back from the show it was all paws on deck as we fitted out the sparkly new BecoOffice. the teddy still had the d.i.y. bug so put his skills to good use by making us a great big BecoThings sign whilst the dog and i had the more taxing task of cleaning and tidying… the teddy and giraffe were mysteriously absent for this part!

may.
the teddy and giraffe were soon on the road again when BecoThings exhibited at the nec baby show 2009. the show was a real success and it was great to meet some of our customers and hear all the fab things they had to say about our products. may was also the month that we launched the BecoPotty across the pond in the united states.

july.
whilst i was soaking up some sun on holiday, the rest of the BecoFamily were no doubt up to all sorts of trouble… however they did welcome the first shipment of BecoBowls to the u.k. and set about marketing them to pet stores nationwide. i arrived back just in time to hear the exciting news that we had reached the semi-final of the hsbc start-up stars awards… and to keep an eye on the teddy who the dog informed me had been causing all sorts of cardboard related mischief! luckily for me help was soon on hand to teddy-sit in the form of lucy the parrot, the newest addition to the BecoFamily.

august.
despite george the giraffe heading off on holiday, the rest of us just about managed to keep the office ticking along and launched the BecoBowl into pets corner. angus the dog celebrated with a very large bag of scooby snacks whilst the rest of us stuck to very large ice creams [i swear the teddy’s one was larger than he is!].

september.
september was the month of the BecoBowl, which won best new product at the 2009 glee pet index awards. the teddy and giraffe, dressed in their sunday best, collected the award at the inaugural pet industry awards dinner. the award judges were really impressed by our plant fibre pet bowl, the first bio-degradable food bowl to reach the market, offering pet owners a unique and eco-friendly alternative to traditional bowls… perfect for the dog to enjoy even more celebratory scooby snacks from.

november.
it started as a little potty idea, but in november our BecoPotty helped us win an award for best innovation at the mother and baby awards. just when we thought we couldn’t get any more excited, BecoThings then won the 2009 hsbc stars green award! the teddy and the giraffe went along to collect the award where they mingled with the likes of duncan bannatyne and lord mandelson, secretary of state for business, at the black-tie gala dinner held at london’s inter-continental hotel… thankfully toby and george scrub up well when suited and booted!

december.
the teddy and giraffe managed to tear themselves away from mischieveous antics in the snow to go and pick up BecoVan1, the latest addition to the family, allowing us to get all our Beco bits and bobs from a to b [to c in some cases when george gets a little bit lost!]. whilst the boys played with their new toy, i was busy baking gingerbread bunnies and researching all the best tips and tricks for an eco-friendly christmas. i heard today that the teddy has now been snowed in, keeping him out of trouble until christmas… though i still think he’ll be lucky if he’s made santa’s nice list!

we really appreciate all the support we have received throughout the year. we have lots of exciting things planned for next year, including the launch of the BecoTray, the eco-friendly kitty litter tray… keep an eye on the BecoBlog and our twitter page for all the latest updates.

so, all that’s left for us to say is we hope you all have a very happy christmas and new year… see you in 2010!

Patent Pending new Fibre Hanger

Toby the TeddySo then guys I have just received news that we have been granted a patent pending on our new eco-friendly hanger. The Fibre Hanger will be added to our range of Becohangers and should hopefully make an appearance online soon! We just need Angus the Dog to work his magic and whiz up a new page and we should be all stations go.

The Fibre Hanger is made from our unique plant fibre material and through some clever engineering (from you know who!) combines a two parts to make the complete hanger. This was the first time two components have been assembled in this material and it has taken a lot of hard work to make the project come together. I just want to say thank you to everybody involved.

Hopefully you should see the new Fibre Hanger in retail stores near you soon!

Welcome to our blog…

George the GiraffeHello everyone and welcome to our new Becoblog. We want to use this blog to tell you as much as possible about our eco friendly alternatives to everyday products, how things are going in the BecoOffice, and more importantly to discuss our products with you.   So please let us know what you think about Becothings and use this blog to discuss any environmental issues that you feel we are addressing or could help out with.

A little update…

Since Christmas I’ve been very happy about our biodegradable coat hangers -Becohangers – that are selling well in John Lewis and are now stocked at Jo Jo Mama Bebe, where our new Becopotty will soon be on sale (www.JoJoMamanBebe.co.uk). While I’ve been slaving away in the BecoOffice Toby the Teddy has been getting very excited as he’s been at the factory overseeing our new products which are just around the corner and are going to be launched on our website any day now! Look out for more Becohangers, and a biodegradable dog bowl – yes you guessed it, it’s called the Becobowl!
