ENJO UK is very proud to announce that it has been named as the winner of the Sustainability Award at the 2019 UK Direct Selling Awards.
The National Awards, which were held this year at The Belfry Hotel & Resort, are hosted by the Direct Selling Association (DSA), the industry body for direct-to-consumer retail. The awards recognise the best individuals, teams and companies in the industry, which includes many well-known and much-loved household names; brands such as Avon, Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic, Usborne Books at Home and The Body Shop at Home.
Direct selling is a £2.67 billion industry in the UK and the latest market data shows that the sector is enjoying a renaissance, with turnover increasing by 27% last year. Over 563,000 people work in the sector.
The Sustainability Award is awarded to the company best demonstrating people, projects, products and organisations that together are redefining what it means to be a sustainable business.
ENJO, which has its headquarters in Harpenden, submitted an award entry which demonstrated its commitment to sustainability, re-cycling and re-using, alongside showcasing its chemical-free cleaning products that aim to reduce plastic waste and chemical residues in waterways.
Susannah Schofield OBE, Director General of the Direct Selling Association, who led the judging, comments: “ENJO’s commitment to its environmental principles are impressive, from the ethos that underpins its product range, right through to the green electricity that is used to manufacture these products. ENJO is a worthy winner of the Sustainability Award, and I am delighted to offer my congratulations.”
The award judges included Elias Jahshan, Editor of leading UK retail news site Retail Gazette, ex-Member of Parliament Lembit Öpik, business mentor Alison Chapman, and Paul Dobson, a member of the European Direct Selling Association (Seldia) Ethics Committee.
