Zero Waste

Choosing zero waste products means finding those which reduce the amount of leftover, non-useful excess.

From packaging that’s not needed, to products designed to be used again and again, the items and brands that are grouped under the zero waste category are actively pursuing ways to make this goal a reality.

Sometimes this looks like products that are durable and designed to last longer, sometimes it’s about minimizing the packaging used to get things to you, sometimes it’s both.

To be considered zero waste, brands should work towards zero-waste by implementing concrete and actionable strategies to reduce the waste footprint of their products and actions.

Whether it’s compostable or recyclable packaging, or products that are designed to go the distance for years to come, the brands we choose for this category have an active focus on doing more with less.
