OUR VALUES

We are committed to safeguard the environment. The planet is the most precious resource that we have. It is also the source of all life – without it, we would cease to exist. By making small changes and embracing sustainable practices, we can all help to safeguard our own quality of life and ensure a liveable planet for future generations.

Malta is home to an abundance of artisans, SMEs and social enterprises that produce eco-friendly, zero-waste and sustainable products and services. We want to help them grow and see them thrive. We believe in shopping local and supporting small green businesses in Malta and are proud to provide this platform for them to shine. 

Creating an active community around the common goal of saving the planet is an important part of what we do. We support dialogue that facilitates new ideas and approaches, interactions and innovations in the field of sustainability. We provide the space for like-minded people to meet, connect and share. Together, as a community, we can grow and achieve a lot.

We hope that our work will inspire other businesses to take their Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility to the next level. There are a myriad of benefits for businesses to adopt sustainable practices in their policies or overall strategy. What’s good for the planet is also good for business.

The Eco Market operates as a not-for-profit, self-financing Social Enterprise where surpluses are re-invested in the project for the benefit of all community members.
