Eco Emi offers a variety of products that focus on introducing our customers to a more eco friendly, natural, fair trade and animal conscious lifestyle.  Everyone has a different definition and idea of what these terms mean, so the Eco Emi team has put together a glossary of what these, and other, terms mean to us.  We hope you find this informative and we feel confident that this glossary will define where we stand so when you get a box from Eco Emi you will know what to expect.  We bless you in your journey to find the right balance for you.
