Kehdy spoke with The National to further describe her vision for EcoSouk. “This isn’t a store,” Kehdy told the newspaper. “It’s a hub and point of access. You don’t even have to buy something. You get a free tree with or without purchase ... We want you to re-think the way you are consuming and the products you are producing.” 🌱
For those who need to purchase alternatives, @ecosouk's current product range includes: a refill bar with liquid products such as laundry detergent, vegetable cleaner, dish cleaner and shampoo, as well as solid shampoo bars, essential oils, handmade pottery, upcycled jewelry, handmade pouches and purses made from discarded plastic shopping bags, knives made from reclaimed wood, books about plastic-free living, soap bars, upcycled coasters, all-natural candles, miswak sticks, pencils, and tote bags... and more!

Kehdy also explained that she is referring to EcoSouk as the "Circular Hub." The name evokes her vision of a circular economy, and is also some fun wordplay, because hub means love in Arabic, The National explained. “Lebanon is traditionally a circular economy. We just have a name for it now," Kehdy told The National. "It used to be village way of living. A repair culture, an artisanal culture,” she said, adding that she wants to "put Lebanon on the map" of the environmental (circular economy) movement.
