Flora&Fauna offers clients a place to buy zero-waste goods, recycle and learn about eco-friendly lifestyles
Spotted: Australian-based Flora&Fauna is creating an interactive marketplace for zero-waste goods and services. Customers will be able to recycle and learn about eco-friendly lifestyles through workshops and pop-ups.
The store will also include the first bulk eco-refill station in the country, providing customers with the opportunity to bring their own containers to refill with shampoo, conditioner and laundry detergent.
Flora&Fauna’s founder, Julie Mathers, created the store five years ago to help promote zero-waste and cruelty-free living. At that time, it was an online shop, offering everything from bamboo toothbrushes to ethical makeup. However, the new bricks and mortar store in Sydney goes beyond offering zero-waste goods. The aim of the store is to provide a space for sharing advice and helping shoppers make better choices.
Springwise has recently spotted other entrepreneurs developing zero-waste retail solutions. A London website maps zero-waste shops across the city. UK-based Lush is using AR to provide product information about its packaging-free goods.
