9 Zero-Waste And Bulk Buy Stores in Singapore To Start Your #PlasticFree Lifestyle

 Zero Waste Collage Updated

Not simply a “trend”, plastic-free living is becoming more popular among Singaporeans due to the heavy cost of single-use plastics on Mother Nature.

This is evident in the zero-waste stores that have been popping up on our island. These stores sell a range of products from organic dry goods sourced from overseas to Castile soaps and lifestyle products to replace single-use-plastics.

Such stores encourage customers to BYOC (bring your own containers) to bulk buy products and purchase only what is needed instead of purchasing in excess which could lead to more wastage!

Providing a simple and seamless process, visitors simply have to bring along their own containers, measure its weight beforehand, fill them up with dry goods that they require, then pay by weight. There are typically friendly and welcoming staff on hand as well to aide in the process too.

Intrigued? Head over to these 9 stores scattered around Singapore to kick start your #ZeroWaste lifestyle!
