Best Eco-friendly Online Stores

Best Eco-friendly Online Stores

22 Feb 2023

If you like shopping from the comfort of your own home, but at the same time feel guilty that your phone or smart watch is not showing the number of steps you have set as a goal to make every day, buying from eco-friendly online stores might ease your conscience. This way, although perhaps not doing much for yourself in terms of fitness, you will be doing a lot for the environment.

The reason to opt for more environmentally conscious stores lies in the fact that online shopping has seen a massive growth, especially over the past few years. This means more trees have been cut down to produce shipping cartons and more plastic has been produced for products’ packaging. This adds vastly to CO2 emission which pollutes ecosystems, as well as to the problem of waste accumulation in landfills. Another major source of pollution is shipping- the transport of goods around the world largely contributes to the CO2 emission and other greenhouse gases.

Our mission is to preserve our planet for future generations by tackling mindless consumption and promoting ecologically sustainable living, and we are big supporters of likeminded companies. In hopes of inspiring you to try them out and join the good fight, we have created a list of some of the best eco-friendly online stores.

Yes, we have put ourselves on the list. The reason is simple- we know first-hand about the quality and design principles of our products, and how much we strive to be as responsible and sustainable as humanly possible. We refuse to only think about profit, and we don’t take shortcuts even if that comes at a cost.

Our shipping is always 100% climate-compensated, and we develop our own packaging which does not contain BPA- plastic or other cheap, harmful materials. We only partner with suppliers we share the same values with, we can trust and inspire to constantly make improvements towards more effective environmental sustainability. We carefully choose what we put in our products as well. We opt for sustainably sourced materials which have the least environmental impact, regardless of the cost, and we never use harmful chemicals in our production process.
