Are you looking for more sustainable options as you slowly transition to a more zero waste lifestyle?

And you live outside of the US and do not have (or know of) any zero waste companies close by?

If you are having trouble finding places that carry plastic free or durable items as you transition to zero waste, the only possible alternative is to shop online. As promised, I gathered together a list of zero waste stores outside of the US.

As I stated before in my previous post about online zero waste stores in the US, it may seem to contradict the philosophy of zero waste by shopping online. And that would be true if the options are available for you locally. But there are times when it’s necessary to buy something new to offset the waste that the alternative would produce in the long run.

A few points I would like to stress about this list is that not every company on here is a zero waste store exactly. But they either carry products that fit the zero waste lifestyle or are more mindful of their shipping methods to reduce their carbon footprint. It’s all about the long-term. If a product will last your whole life, a little plastic packaging is much better in the end than the alternative.

Which brings me to my second point, these goods usually tend to be a bit more expensive because they are built to last longer. And so you might have to spend more initially. But in the long term, you will actually save more money in the end. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

So if you are having trouble finding goods locally, that is where these shops can help. Also, this gives you the opportunity to use your consumer power to show companies that buyers want more green and sustainable options. Where and how you choose to spend your money will influence the market in the future.

I have put this list in alphabetical order by continent and then country. I did this so that you may find the shops nearest to you in order to minimize the distance these goods have to travel and, thus, lessen the carbon emissions needed to get these products to you. Also, for your convenience, I have listed the types of items you can find at these online stores and any additional information that might be helpful like if they have a physical location.

I will not claim that this list is complete as zero waste stores are popping up all the time. So if you know of an online zero waste shop not on this list, please let me know and I will gladly review and update it. And in advance, thank you for going zero waste.
