Seattle Zero Waste Businesses
This is the final week of July and our final Plastic Free July post. If you have been following along all month, you know that we've been sharing different posts that focus on sustainability, reducing, reusing, and recycling including sustainable kitchen swaps, a bulk bins grocery haul, and a simple broth recipe to reuse scraps and eliminate waste. We are not experts in the zero waste or sustainability movement, but recognize that each of us has an impact. Even small changes in our behavior can make a big impact for the world around us. We also know that while one month is a start, this is a lifelong challenge to change habits and live more sustainably. Join us in keeping up the swaps, limiting plastics, and supporting local businesses all year long. Check out four great zero waste businesses in Seattle below - you can even order online and ship across the US!
1. Public Goods and Services
Public Goods and Services is a massive marketplace and resource for sustainable and zero waste shopping. The store includes a brick and mortar location in West Seattle as well as online shopping (pick up in store or they'll ship to you). Public Goods and Services is a great option for home goods, cleaning, and body and hair care.

2. Scoop Marketplace
Scoop Marketplace is a diverse shop in Kirkland, WA with bulk foods, health and beauty products, cleaning products, and other reusable housewares. You can shop in person or have any of their products delivered straight to your home with carbon neutral shipping.

3. Eco Collective
Eco Collective is a go-to business for sustainable beauty, wellness, and healthcare. The Ballard-based, women owned company ships across the US with carbon neutral shipping (free if you spend more than $60). While they have recently closed their brick and mortar storefront, be sure to follow their instagram for special events at their warehouse.

4. BONUS: 7 Coffee Roasters - Seattle's first zero waste café!
Given that Pierogi and Springroll is primarily a food blog, we couldn't leave this list without a shout out to 7 Coffee Roasters. The Ravenna-based coffee shop is Seattle's first zero waste café and features sustainably farmed coffee, compostable packaging, a coffee mug library and more. Don't forget to bring your own mug or thermos next time you're in the area.
