Welcome to NU online!

I'm Valerie, founder of NU and chief guinea pig for NU's online store. I started adopting a zero waste lifestyle a year and a half ago and have tried out many different waste-reducing products along the way!

This store is a collection of zero waste products that I really like and use in my daily life. For each of them, I give you my honest opinion and personal tips. I hope that these products will help you on your own journey towards simple and waste-free living.

We are starting with our 40+ favourites and plan to gradually increase our offering. Do you have questions, comments and suggestions? Keep them coming at We love to hear from you!


Zero waste and online shopping

Buying online and reducing waste usually don’t go together. When you buy online, your products need extra packaging in the form of cardboard boxes, tape, and those annoying plastic bubble wraps or foam peanuts that protect goods from damage. Don't you hate them?

Know that we'll do everything to make your online purchase as zero waste as possible! 

We use only paper packaging that is 100% recyclable. This includes the tape, the labels and any filler used to protect the product. And whenever possible, we reuse the boxes that we get from our suppliers. 


Shipping and Returns

OK, we don’t deliver by bike yet. Someday maybe! For now, we use Canada Post’s Expedited Shipping.

We ship for $10 across Canada and offer free shipping for orders over $85. We’ve added great new products in the last weeks, so now's the perfect time to order away and make the switch to #zerowaste!

We want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase. If you are not, please contact us within 30 days of receiving your order at and we’ll organize the return. The product must be in original new condition with all packaging. Once we have received your returned item, we will credit your original form of payment. Return costs are your responsibility – we refund shipping charges only if the item is defective or if we made a mistake.
