Miami ecopreneurs will be able to buy and sell a wide range of eco-friendly products online from July 15, when the site launches.
The ecopreserve.com launch marks the first global e-commerce service for ecotouring.
The service will allow ecoturists to buy, sell and transport products, including solar panels, LED lighting, LED water heaters, biodiesel fuel, batteries and even a small electric bike.
It’s a welcome development for the industry, said David Kostanovich, president of the Miami ecorecord company.
“This is a major step in the right direction,” Kostani told TechCrunch.
The Miami ecorders will be free to use the platform and will be allowed to rent bikes, but there’s no guarantee that they will be given access to the products they purchase.
This could be a big win for the eco-movement.
The industry, for its part, says it’s the first such service for a large-scale e-marketing operation in the United States.
The ecopress service will launch next week.
As for the price of the products, it will be $25 per month for solar panels.
The solar panels will be paid for by donations, which will be used to offset some of the costs associated with installing solar panels and other renewable energy sources in the region.
The price of biodiesel is also $25 a month, which the Miami company will use to offset the costs of diesel fuel used in diesel generators.
The company will also use a portion of that money to pay for other eco-products, including an LED lighting system.
Miami ecoprensts will be also able to rent a solar powered bike.
They’ll pay $200 a month for a standard bicycle, which can go up to $1,200 for a light-duty bike.
Miami ecropreneurs can also rent a small car to take them around town.
While the ecoopreserves website says it will take the form of a website, it could also be a mobile app that people use to search for and buy products and services.
For now, the Miami e-corders are working with the Miami-based company Vignette, which is developing a service that will enable ecoprezisters to buy a variety of products online.
Vignette says the service is currently being designed by a team of five Miami ecores and a team from Europe.
