About Us

Eco Maniac Company

Eco Maniac Company was founded in March 2008 by Christina Trapani. What started as 10 designs and 1000 reusable grocery bags has turned into an online store with many options to help you replace single-use plastics as well as other eco-friendly and Fair Trade alternatives to every day items.

When we add products to our selection, we want to make sure they meet as much of the following criteria as possible:

  •    Eco FriendlyEMCproducts
  •    Sustainably made
  •    Ethically made
  •    Reusable
  •    Made from sustainable materials
  •    Replace a similar unsustainable product

Find us at the Old Beach Green Market (19th & Cypress Ave., Virginia Beach, VA; November – April: third Saturdays, 9 am to Noon; May – October, every Saturday, 9 am to Noon. Or check our event calendar for any special events that we can be found at.

Christina is also involved in several marine debris research and education including litter prevention programs and a statewide marine debris monitoring project in Virginia. Click here for more info.
