What if there were no trash?
What if sustainable living were easy?
What if there were a hub for low-waste living?
What if there was a united space for makers of sustainable products?
Welcome to Package Free! We're on a mission to make the world less trashy.
Founded by a pioneer of the Zero Waste movement, Lauren Singer, Package Free offers everything that you need to live a zero waste lifestyle in one place.
We believe that it should be easy to make choices that positively benefit the environment and that no matter who you are, where you come from, what you believe in, how many zero’s you have (or don’t have) in your bank account, what president you voted for, what gender you identify with, or what part of town you live in, we can all take simple steps to reduce our waste.
So no matter what boxes you check… here’s to thinking outside all of them.
We source our products from individuals and brands with missions to create a positive environmental impact. We are proud to call them our friends and constant sources of inspiration.
How do we measure our success? We like to look at the overall impact of the products we are selling. Since opening we’ve kept over 4 million plastic straws, over 3 million plastic bags and over 1.5 million non-recyclable bottles and cups out of landfill, to name a few.
We also view success as helping our brands take steps to reduce their waste. We have a strict packaging policy and since opening we have helped many of the brands that we work with to make changes within their companies to reduce plastic usage, packaging, and waste.
