Looking for zero-waste and plastic-free shops? Here are some of my favourite Etsy stores for eco-friendly and low or no-waste products.
I might have mentioned before on here that Etsy is one of my favourite places to shop for, well, pretty much anything. It’s always been my go-to place for anything decorative homewares-related or for vintage goods. However, recently Etsy has really upped its game. It now has a whole host of zero-waste and plastic-free shops popping up too, listing a beautiful array of eco-friendly products.
Whilst Etsy is a global platform, I’ve found 10 UK-based zero-waste and plastic-free shops/makers/sellers on Etsy. What’s more, the majority of them are run by female entrepreneurs.
The Zero-Waste and Plastic-Free Etsy Shops
Here are ten of my favourite Etsy shops, selling a diverse range of zero-waste and/or plastic-free products, that you may (or may not) need for plastic-free living.
Conscious Fibres sells a whole host of plastic-free and reusable goods in their Etsy shop. From produce bags, multi-purpose cloths, make-up wipes, tote bags, handkerchiefs, and handy zero-waste takeout kits. The best bit is all of them are handmade in the UK.
And once your Conscious Fibres product has reached the end of its lifespan, relax in the knowledge that all of their products are completely compostable, or can be recycled.
Creations by Jennie Lee
The Creations by Jennie Lee Etsy shop specialises in stylish plastic-free and zero-waste cutlery pouches. These are perfect for popping in your bag for lunches and picnics – helping you to avoid the need to use single-use cutlery. There are heaps of different designs sure to appeal to every family member – making them perfect for little ones’ lunchboxes too.
Strictly Sustainable Plastic-Free Shop
Georganics is a fantastic range of natural plastic-free oral care. From toothpaste and mouthwash sold in glass jars to refillable glass jars of natural dental floss, and bamboo toothbrushes, there’s pretty much everything you need for a zero-waste dental routine and a healthy smile. Find their products on sale at the Strictly Sustainable plastic-free Etsy shop.
Lilah Pads sell beautiful handmade washable sanitary towels. I recently purchased a couple for myself, and I am genuinely surprised at how much more comfortable these are than regular sanitary towels. They are SO much more comfortable). And not only that, they are so much more absorbent than their plastic-based equivalent. I’ve bought two pads, to begin with, to ease me into the world of reusable sanitary towels, but I will definitely be purchasing some more soon.
Luna Beauty sells zero-waste, plastic-free, cruelty-free, and vegan cosmetics that I’ve blogged about here before. From eyeliner and mascara to blusher and bronzer, everything in their shop is plastic-free. For extra green points, you can even send your empty tins and bottles back for a refill. This earns you a 15% discount on your refill order.
Moonbeam Club sells their all-purpose Moonbeam Cream at a purse-friendly £8. This is a natural moisturiser suitable for both your face and body without the need for separate products. Each batch is handmade using natural ingredients. What’s more, the cream is packaged in glass jars with aluminum lids, making it plastic-free. Although please note the cream contains beeswax so is not suitable for vegans.
Rowen Stillwater Plastic-Free Shop
Rowen Stillwater only sells vegan zero-waste products, from vegan wax wraps for food, to reusable teabags, plastic-free sponges, and more. What’s more, every item from their shop ships plastic-free, so you can be sure that plastic doesn’t sneakily find it’s way into your home.
Soapdaze sells a lovely range of vegan and plastic-free handmade natural skincare products in their shop. From beautifully scented soaps that can be purchased with or without packaging to reusable makeup removal pads. I also love their pretty handknitted facecloths, and their lovely facial oils and cleansing grains. It’s safe to say I love everything in this beautiful little shop.
Tabitha Eva sells everything you could need for a zero-waste home. From reusable nail varnish remover pads to plastic-free sponges. From food wraps to reusable kitchen roll, produce bags, and more. Essentially, if you are looking for something plastic-free Tabitha Eve probably stocks it in their zero-waste shop!
The Zero-Waste Maker Plastic-Free Shop
Finally, Oktavia, aka The Zero-Waste Maker, collects waste fabrics and fabric scraps from her day job as a costume designer. She then turns these scraps into useful items that can help in your journey towards plastic-free living. What’s more, it keeps her job as a costume designer as zero-waste as possible. Every item in the Zero Waste Maker plastic-free shop is therefore unique, and in each listing Oktavia tells you where the piece of fabric used came from. Look out for beautiful produce bags, makeup removal pads, sponges, cloths, and more.
