About Us

Dedicated to our people, principles, and planet, Ecotrend Ecologics Ltd. provides premium products, exceptional service, and a truly ethical approach to business.

Founded in 1988 by import/export specialist John Harrison of Vancouver, B.C., Ecotrend Ecologics Ltd. has grown steadily from a one-person operation to its current complement of 40 dedicated professionals. Today, we are a respected international distributor representing high quality products and servicing both retail health stores and alternative healthcare practitioners.

Ecotrend believes in the human touch. Family and friends play an important role in the almost familial relationships we are proud to maintain with our suppliers. Treating both people and our planet with dignity, Ecotrend has nurtured a foundation of loyalty and trust. Today we manage over 3,800 retail and professional accounts and 101 suppliers.

 

John Harrison, CEO

picture of John Harrison, CEOEcotrend is a direct reflection of its founder. Descendant from a long lineage of conservationists, John Harrison demonstrates an unwavering love of nature and an appreciation of humanity and gentleness rare in the world of business.

The Company is proud to announce that it received its Climate Smart certification in 2011. This government approved program requires a detailed assessment of all aspects of a company’s carbon footprint. Seven months after starting this program Ecotrend was able to receive its certification and it is the only company in the Health and Wellness industry in Canada that has committed itself to this level of environmental stewardship.

John's family safeguards the natural environment of a number of coastal properties, some purchased over seventy years ago, constructing log cabins and maintaining unspoiled sanctuaries for wildlife. A deep concern for the biosphere is evident in John's personal association with the David Suzuki foundation, the World Wildlife Fund, the Sierra Legal Defense Fund, and Western Canada Wilderness. Ecotrend is an important part of this commitment.
