Echotopia waste-free natural cleaning products are aromatherapeutic and are locally manufectured by hand in small batches. They are sold at Baltimore farmers' markets and area shops year round.

Echotopia products are highly concentrated, so a little bit lasts a long while.

At markets, customers can 1) bring their own containers, 2) use our upcycled containers when in stock, 3) buy Echotopia re-use glass jars or canvas bags, 4) then return for refills, paying only for the powders..

An Echotopia purchase is an investment in body, home, community, earth with immediate, positive impact.  Our products promote health, are biodegradable, and don't contain deadly chemicals. We honor business partners with fair payment. Our containers are made regionally or elsewhere in the U.S. Our child- and pet-friendly cleaners get the job done, and are mixed locally and ethically from our small garden and from natural ingredients.

Echotopia implements cleaner, greener practices.  We use salvaged, compostable or recyclable materials at every opportunity, including our manufacturing process and shipping. Our work space uses 100% wind power offsets. Echotopia reduces public and environmental health costs of hand and household cleaning because we strive to be petroleum and plastic-free in our packaging and ingredients. Echotopia products and accessories don't contain nasty chemicals that harm our precious waterways. Our reuse containers do not become plastic, toxic waste destined for landfill, incinerators, or fragile natural settings like parks, trees, and rivers. Echotopia will implement non-fossil fuel transportation at our earliest opportunity.

Echotopia partners with our customers to create local wildflower habitats through another unique product, our Echotopia Seed Rounds, homemade 3" old paper discs embedded with native flower seeds In our first year of business, our customers planted dozens of Echotopia Seed Rounds. By the summer of 2017, the results are encouraging: multiplying wildlife gardens that are feeding embattled bees, birds, butterflies and others in our shared, delicate food chain. Thus, Echotopia has created a business structure designed to promote ecosystem education and restoration, one micro-habitat at a time. Our effort is an ongoing invitation to customers: to join us in honoring life's interdependence, patiently through the seasons, in the glorious Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Echotopia is a new economy, community based,  import replacement, social enterprise for every one. We gladly offer our fragrant, unique, planet-loving products and manufacturing methods to our customers. Like a melodic echo, Echotopia is music to our ears.

Customer Testimonials
"I use Echotopia Lavender, Sage & Rosemary Laundry Detergent and Echotopia Hint of Mint Hand Scrub - gentle and effective!"  D.S., 2017
"I use Echotopia Lemon Thyme Scouring Scrub for my stainless steel kitchen sink and love it!" D.L.O., 2017
"You sent me a jar of Echotopia Hint of Mint Hand Scrub and I put it under the kitchen sink because we did not need it just then. C. pulled it out a week ago and now I don't see how we could possibly live without it, especially after working in the garden. It is fantastic - clean smooth skin after a day of hard labor." Sam, 2016
"I knew this Echotopia Lavender, Sage & Rosemary Laundry Detergent smelled great and was environmentally friendly, but I was not expecting it to work better than products from large-scale producers. When I pulled three items out of the dryer, stains that had been there for months were gone! So to my surprise, doing something that benefits the environment came at no sacrifice of performance. It actually restored clothing I had taken out of my office-wear rotation. It really works!" Betsy, 2015
"Our old, gross tile shower is sparkly white and new again! Thanks, Echotopia Lemon Thyme Scouring Scrub!!!" Krissy, 2015
"Love the Echotopia Hint of Mint Hand Scrub! Need to get more!" Julia, 2015
