Zero Waste Club is an online store selling plastic-free and ethically and sustainably made essential items, which are posted in plastic-free packaging (recycled kraft paper, green jiffy bags and recycled boxes), with each sale funding the planting of a tree in order for the company to offset its CO2 emissions.

The website’s range of products includes the Organic Cotton Dish Towel (£6.99).  The website is fully transparent about the manufacturing process, explaining that these towels, for example, are made in India by workers earning 16,000 rupees per month (twice the minimum wage) and who work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.  The towels are shipped by sea freight to minimise their carbon footprint.

Its Reusable Stainless Steel Razor (£24.99) comes with 10 blades, and is made in China by workers under similar conditions as above.  Zero Waste Club points out that more than 2 billion plastic razors are disposed of annually, and are rarely recycled due to their composite materials.  This razor and its blades are fully recyclable at end of life.

Another eye-catching product in this company’s highly sustainable range is the Collapsible Metal Straw & Travel Case (£7.99), which is a handy stainless steel alternative to the increasingly unpopular plastic versions.  The case means it can be transported conveniently and cleanly.  The straw extends up to 23.5cm.

The website also provides a guide to help others who are interested in setting up their own zero-waste shop.
