David has over 15 years experience in entrepreneurship, working in Switzerland and Spain for various startups in the travel, real estate and content industries.
And he loves all all underwater sports like free diving and underwater hockey.
Jonathan is a young marketer, with a few years’ experience in the Spanish travel and event industry. He recently joined David in his adventure, with the aim to do some good.
How eco- started
eco- was started by David Douek in mid-2018 with the aim to make responsible consumption easier. David noticed that many of his friends were motivated to chose a sustainable alternative when there was one, but finding the alternative often took too much time. He thus decided to allow people to find all sustainable alternatives in a single place and launched a marketplace, aggregating all types of sustainable products.
