A lot of zero waste items are largely unavailable to the large masses. This makes it difficult to swap a lot of our single-use items for reusables. And because these items aren’t readily available to the average consumer, some don’t even know that they exist!
Packaging is also a problem when shopping online. Buying sustainable items from amazon is certainly an option but you’re usually dealing with excess plastic packaging.
I’ve rounded up 10 of my favourite zero waste online stores to get sustainable items and that come shipped with minimal to no packaging!

10 Zero Waste Online Stores:
1. Earth Hero
Earth Hero definitely stands out as your one-stop-shop for all your low waste and package free needs. They carry plastic-free kitchen, bathroom, and laundry essentials, as well as sustainable pet supplies, ethically made clothing, sustainably makeup and skincare.
They ship in compostable and recycled packaging and are apart of 1% for the planet. They are also a certified B-corp and are carbon neutral!
The only downside is that they currently only ship to the USA, but have plans to expand soon!
While Well isn’t exclusively a zero-waste store (as they still offer single-use items) their collection of zero and low waste items is quite big. And for us Canadians who are tired of paying duties, this site is a dream!
They carry well-known sustainable brands like hydro-flask, stasher bags, baggu and more! They also offer an array of sustainable makeup brands and are home to the ‘clean beauty market’.
They ship their packages with paper filling instead of bubble wrap and only use plastic occasionally if your order contains a lot of glass.
Life without plastic strives to create a healthier world for both us and the planet. Plastic, as we know contributes to the huge pollution crisis and is dangerous to our health as well.
They offer all the plastic-free items you could ever need from household items to personal care and hygiene products.
All new packaging used to package your product is plastic-free. There may be some plastic in your order that was packaged that way by the manufacturer and not by life without plastic. They work hard to reduce the amount of plastic significantly and they are successful.
From plastic-free personal care products, reusable items, and non-toxic, zero waste supplies, well earth goods has it all!
They’re packaging is what really sets them apart, though. It includes recycled paper tape, recycled labels, compostable bags, compostable stickers made from sugar cane pulp, and they claim to use no plastic in their shipping at all!

This eco-conscious and minimalist brand was started to inform others about the dangers of single-use plastics by offering affordable and high-quality alternatives.
They ship in cardboard boxes and paper envelopes that are 100% recyclable and contain no plastic.
