BEING ZWS SUSTAINABLE
Is Online Shopping Always the Most Sustainable Option?
At the Zero Waste Store, each package is shipped with love & mindfulness for the environment, and we take great pride in making your shopping experience as sustainable as possible by getting your package to you in the most earth-friendly way.
While most online retailers place importance on cutting time & cost on unsustainable practices that leave behind boxfuls of plastic & styrofoam waste when you order from them, at the Zero Waste Store we package all of our products with plastic-free, 100% biodegradable shipping materials such as water-activated paper tape, compostable shipping labels, post-consumer boxes, recycled padded mailers, corn starch packing peanuts, and more! Every part of your package can be composted, reused, or recycled. Plus with ZWS carbon-offset shipping, you can make every order a carbon footprint-friendly one.

Is Everything on ZWS 100% Sustainable?
Every ZWS order we process at the Zero Waste Store facility serves as a humbling reminder that we are part of something much bigger than ourselves, and our main goal is to motivate and inspire others to cut out single-use plastics, reduce their everyday waste, and switch to more earth-friendly alternatives. That is why Zero Waste Store only sells 100% all-natural, ethically sourced, zero waste products.

What is Carbon Offsetting?
Carbon offsetting is simply reducing your carbon emission with one action to compensate for emissions you produced with another action. For example, you can counterbalance the carbon emissions created from shipping by purchasing a carbon offset that would directly fund an environmental project that removes greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Learn more about carbon-neutrality by reading our blog post Conquer Your Footprint with Carbon Offsetting.

What is Terracycle?
Some of our waste materials can be recycled, but most can’t. And for those items that can’t be recycled, there’s Terracycle. By recognizing the value in every part of our waste, the innovative Terracycling program takes discarded items from around the world and turns them into a brand new products, using almost no energy at all. Major companies and millions of environmentally-conscious individuals around the world currently use this platform to help divert millions of pounds of these valuable resources from entering our oceans and landfills.
And at the Zero Waste Store, we absolutely adore this type of forward-thinking that creates positive impacts on the environment, which is why we also use Terracycle boxes in our facility.
