The idea probably hit Steve Savage while standing on top of a Colorado 14’er or while traveling across the rolling plains of Kansas where he went to College. His idea was to bring high quality eco-friendly products to the Boulder business community.
In 1990, Steve took the orders, delivered the goods, counted inventory, and maintained the delivery van. It was several years before Steve rewarded himself the luxury of hiring an employee. Now, Eco-Products has over 60 employees in the Corporate office alone.
As consumer’s environmental consciousness expanded, so did Eco-Products. Today Eco-Products sells over 100 different products to all fifty states, Canada, and Mexico. They grew from a small eco-friendly distributor into the most recognized brand of environmental foodservice products nationwide, always ‘walking the talk’.
