5 online stores for plastic free alternatives

No Plastic Shop

Don’t fret, if you’re not near a physical zero waste shop. No Plastic Shop is a one stop online shop for kitchen, bathroom and toiletry supplies that are all plastic free. 

Think popular hard bar shampoos and conditioners, beeswax wraps, make-up sponges, bamboo cutlery and biodegradable ear buds. Plus it has just added a new plastic free make-up line with gift boxes to come.

Yup, this store has all your daily essentials except these are plastic free, reusable, biodegradable and essentially don't add to the global plastic problem. 

"We all need to start reducing our plastic waste, if we want to preserve the oceans for future generations. There are so many wonderful products available that contain no plastic, especially basics such as soap and shampoos. Not only is swapping to zero plastic products better for the environment, it can also be better for your hair, skin and well being," says No Plastic Shop's owner Izzy Crouch.

Shipped via Royal Mail in zero waste packaging, they use locally recycled materials as much as possible.

Zero Waste Club

Whole foods and pantry staples is what Plastic Free Pantry is all about, it's the UK's first online plastic-free food delivery company. While it is based near Nottingham and run plastic free pop ups there, the store delivers all over the UK. There's no plastic packaging of course, they use paper and a plant-based film made from wood pulp which is home compostable.
