Hi All,

Greetings. I'm new here and I'd like to have some start on finding some green products (recycled) to dropship/wholesale, wanted to get some home living item such as pillows, mattress but don't know how to start. Tried by typing 'Green Product' and 'Recycled item' in the SaleHoo Search but the results come out not the things I want.

So may I ask, where to source the green product from? Mind to share here or please pm me for more ideas.

Trying to making sales and save the earth at the same time :-P

Hi items4sale0083,

Welcome aboard!

'Making sales and saving the earth at the same time' -that could make for a good tag line :)

You can try other keywords like, 'natural', 'organic'. That should bring up great results. I did a search for eco-friendly suppliers for you. Most suppliers that we have for this kind of products are suppliers under 'home and garden' and health and beauty'. They are selling mostly baby products, cosmetics and beauty products.

Here are some of them:

Essentialwholesale.com, you'd be glad to know that they are a member of American Botanical Council, Organic Trade Association, Verified Vegan, etc.

Northernsun.com, go to their About Us page and read their short history, it's amazing! They have great products that promote peace and care for the earth for everyone in the family.

Sckoon.com, they are a member of Organic Trade Association and Demeter Certified Biodynamic.

Organichome.com.au, their tag line is Making a Difference Naturally! Even their packaging is or has been recycled with the added offer of a refill service for AU locals.

Natureschild.com (Change the World - One Purchase at a time)

There are a lot more suppliers of green products. They are just waiting to be found ;) As I've said, just try different keywords.

Hope that helps! Anyone who has ideas, please share! Cheers! :)

Okay, I just got on Salehoo and I'm a newbie. I want to sell natural, eco-friendly stuff. I have a website already just waiting (I'm a web designer by trade). I can't buy wholesale or in bulk because I can't afford it as of yet, so I want to dropship.

I have EIN and sales number. I have a few companies, thanks to Salehoo (but I'd like more selection). What do I do now to put them all together & start selling?

If you have your online platform fully developed then it's a matter of listing the products from your selected drop shipping avenues and setting about marketing your site to generate traffic flow.

Sounds like you have pretty much taken care of just about everything else.

You can contact Link hidden: Login to view if you are unable to find enough suppliers in the directory. Give them some ideas and they will do their best to help generate some leads for you.

Hi AjaAB,

Here's a link to a related post:

I have listed some eco-friendly suppliers on that post and you might be interested in checking them out.

Regarding listing your products on your website, once you've found the drop shipper that fits your requirements, contact them directly so you can get answers to any questions you might have about their products and terms, set up an account with them and then, you can grab the drop shipper's provided photos and product descriptions to your own website and start selling. Some drop shippers provide real time inventory to help you avoid out of stock issues. Note when grabbing photos and descriptions, make your listing different and unique to be more attractive to buyers.

Hope that helps! It's great to have you on board! :)
