– Over 50 shops signed up, with 20 in November 2019 alone.
– Over 25 refill stations now signed up, with over 10 in October 2019 alone.
– Over 40 My Eco-Sites, our ‘instant e-commerce solution’ web store and affiliate page for community assets launched in December 2019. MyEco.Site brings over a dozen partner brands with over 300 sustainable products as part of a roll out of services to enable community owned enterprise at scale.
LocoSoco CEO James Perry said: “While our statutory results to May 31st 2019 reflect a period of foundation-building for a technology start up company, I am delighted that the long anticipated roll-out of brand partnerships, shops and refill stations has absolutely hit the ground running, with our operational size effectively doubling during Q4 2019.
We are in the midst of a sustainable revolution both for the environment and the economy. At a rough estimate, 50% of household spend could transition into sustainable alternatives. That’s a whopping £400 billion market annually in the UK alone. A typical village with a church and local shop will generate some £1.5m in transactions, equating to around £37k per head in the village. LocoSoco can provide that community with the tools to move that spend into to sustainable alternatives.
We are also proud and excited to be launching MyEco Sites this month, providing our partner brands with a channel to address specific needs within communities. With My Eco Sites, we have provided our sales team with a complete range of tools to roll out to local communities across the UK. I look forward to providing a further trading update early in 2020.”
