When we change our habits, we can change the world.
There’s no simple solution to the plastic problem, but we believe that businesses have a responsibility to create more sustainable options in order to make it easier for people to live more sustainable lives. When you buy a product, you buy the waste that come with it, so it is our goal to eliminate as much plastic from the waste stream as possible, by providing you with biodegradable and reusable alternatives.
Our founder, Loren, quit plastic in 2016 out her passion for the environment and invited others to share her journey by creating The Plastic Free Shop. From community workshops and a small, market stall start-up, The Plastic Free Shop now offers a range of zero-waste & plastic free online options from dozens of Australian brands that share our core values.
In 2021 we opened our retail store in Fyshwick, which has quickly become a favourite destination for Canberra locals. Our zero-waste ‘Beauty on Tap’ options mean you can now BYO bottles to fill up on high quality personal care products like shampoo, conditioner, body wash, micellar water, body lotion and more.
Just like you, we want to create a cleaner, greener future and the time has come to reconsider our relationship with plastic. Here at The Plastic Free Shop, we welcome change, because when we change our habits, together we can change the world.
