Plastic free, carbon neutral shipping
All of our shipping materials are 100% recyclable and/or compostable. We ship our packages using recycled paper boxes, paper tape, and compostable shipping labels, and sometimes compostable shipping envelopes. We reuse paper stuffing from larger shipments.
Our shipments are now also 100% carbon neutral! We use a carbon neutral shipping service that partners with South Pole Group to offset emissions.

This is a great option for a counter top drying system. It’s simple and clean and doesn’t add clutter to the space. We use it for our reusable bags and our baby bottles and accompanying pieces!
This conditioner bar provides my curly/wavy hair with the perfect amount of moisture without leaving it greasy or weighed down. I would buy this product again.
Amazing product. Nothing more needed to be said!
I was worried about trying this product due to a lot of other sunscreens in the past leaving a white film on my face and being difficult to apply. This sunscreen though, is everything I have been looking for in a product, applies easily and smoothly, and doesn’t leave any white or greasy film on my face! It actually also kind of acts like a BB cream and provides a little/light foundation like coverage on the face. I would highly recommend this product.
Let me count the ways that I love this sponge. I bought two, one for the shower and the other for dishes. It lathers up so well and is the perfect size. I prefer it more for the shower than dishes but it gets the job done.
For the shower, it’s a soft exfoliant and the holes in the middle are perfect for putting soap that is reaching its end.
For dishes, it’s really good but if you’re like me and tend to not rinse their dishes from time to time, then it tends to break down quicker. To extend its life, I use the wooden dish brush for stuck on food and finish with the sponge. Regardless, it gets my dishes way cleaner than my silicone sponge.
I was searching for a plastic-free alternative for toothpaste and came across eco-collective in a YouTube video. It came in such a cute little glass jar and absolutely no plastic packaging! I loved that the package came with a hand written note from the store as well! It was a little weird chewing up the tablets because it isn’t something I was used to, but it REALLY worked. I was really surprised how clean it made me mouth feel. I definitely would recommend the toothpaste tablets to everyone!
This bar cleans well, doesn't dry my hair and smells fabulous. But smell doesn't linger and isn't overwhelming. Love it. My hair is dead straight and I live in the desert SW. This shampoo bar works great for me. Plus, it's not encased in plastic and the little box it's shipped in is recyclable.
These unpaper towels were a gift to me and are amazing! Seriously way more absorbent than a paper towel, so cute on my towel holder, and saving trees everyday! Where have I been all this time? Just ordered two sets for friends for birthdays and they love them as much as I do! Did I share that they wash beautifully? Why wouldn’t you want these? Can’t think of one reason! Love love love these and the makeup remover pads too!
I cannot highly recommend this enough - not only does it get the job done and scrub every pot I throw it’s way but it lasts way longer than any plastic dish brushes I used to use. Been using mine for a while and the bristles still look like new, not bent and warped like other brushes get. This is an eco friendly kitchen essential!
I was so skeptical about these even with so many good reviews mainly because it seems very new-agey - like some special crystal that will magically make you not smell bad (lol) but I swear it works so well. I’ve used so many natural deodorants and have always been disappointed but the Alum Stone is just as good if not better than any non-natural deodorant I’ve tried. I also work out a lot (running and/or biking) 5/6 days per week and it even protects me through workouts! Highly recommend. (Plus it’s really pretty)
This is a game changer if you use non-dairy milk - especially oat milk because it’s so easy to make. I thought it would take a bunch of planning (aka soaking over night) to make my own non-dairy milks at home but it literally takes 5 mins and the ingredients are so cheap. This nutmilk filter is super easy to use and clean and has saved me a ton of money!
This is one of the easiest zero-waste swaps you can make. I love them and use them everyday to remove makeup from under my eyes or apply toner. They’re super soft and can be used multiple times before washing. They also get softer after you wash them a few times! Liked them so much I bough then as Christmas gifts for friends.
You won’t be disappointed!!
Ok, so I don't have curly hair. I have thin slightly wavy flat as crap dried out hair. I wash my hair once a week and THIS. THIS my friend makes my hair so soft. The softness holds until about 4 or 5 of no washing which is crazy for me. NO grease, easily spreadable through my hair. I am in love. I gave all my other conditioner bars to my friends knowing I would only use this one from now on.
LOVELOVEVLOVE. doesn't have a strong smell or anything. I would like maybe it one had a vanilla smell? Just because my shampoo is apple cedar vinegar and sometimes my hair smells like it.
I have been searching for years for a deodorant that doesn't irritate my skin. FINALLY the search is over! Not only is this deodorant great but I love the compostable container and the fact that when I am done I can drop the cardboard container into my composter and not have un-recyclable plastic to deal with. Also great that I know what each of the ingredients are that are listed on the container...no more wondering what I am putting on (and ultimately in) my body!
This is a great pot scrubber! The bristles are strong and stand up to the harshest caked on materials. I find that the handle is perfect for getting the leverage needed to tackle the work!
I have very dry skin, especially in the winter, and this moisturizer helps more than any other I’ve tried. It does leave some oily sheen on top of my skin so I dust some powder on top. So worth it though!
This is a wonderful zero waste alternative to what has become standard, liquid soap. This soap block is easy to use and lasts a long time!
I drink tap water and can tell the difference after using this filter. I am hooked.
Absolutely love this product. I have extremely sensitive skin and a lot of deodorants sting or have contributed to rashes and darkened my underarms. I stopped using them almost half a decade ago and switched to alum. However sourcing the right kind of alum that didn't make your underarms sticky was dufficult. So glad to find eco-collective. The stone is magical. It is gentle on my underarms and my underarms don't smell, at all. And this is without deodrant or perfume.
I’m not a super smelly person, but I’ve had a lot of deodorants mix with my natural scent weird (mainly natural deodorants) or give me rashes because my skin is really sensitive- I’ve only use this for about 3 days but honestly I’m so impressed and surprised! This is definitely my favorite low waste swap this far, I HIGHLY recommend getting the alum stone! The shop was able to get it to me so fast and it was also packaged with care :)
I've tried a few different brands and nothing seemed to work well...half way through the day needing to reapply. Totally different story with my new alum stone. Apply once and I'm good all day. In fact, I tend to shower only every other day and I've still had good results without even reapplying for the second day. It's that good! I love that it came without any packaging at all and it seems like it's going to last quite a long time.
I use my bag boat almost every day. Today it has a recycled baggy on it, salad spinner and drying a recyclable! It sits in the corner of the counter ready to work.
Just like everyone else, I was skeptical at how this could possibly work. But I gave it a try anyway. I couldn't find a natural deoderant that worked for me and I'm so glad I found this. Not only is it pretty but it worked perfectly and it's plastic free! I'm so glad I no longer need to shop for deoderant for a long time. Thanks eco collective!
Seriously stop what your doing and order your very own Alum Stone now. I have tried a myriad of natural Deodorants that did not keep me fresh all day and I still hated the fact that they came in plastic... came across Eco’s Alim stone and was very skeptical. So SO glad I ordered one, I’ve had it for a week and haven’t had any pit smell or weird film, nothing! It’s easy to apply and I’m going to start my whole family on it. An additional plus, it’s natural do I notice it’s not leaving film on the pits of my shirts. Thank you to the ladies at Eco Collective 💜
So glad I got these! I have been trying to cut down on my single-use products and these are amazing!
I REALLY like this product.. before, I had been using ELF brow gel and had been using that for years. Elate's brow balm is really nice, gives my brows a more defined, dark look, and I love that they have non-plastic, eco-conscious packaging; I'll be sticking to this product from now on. It works great, would definitely recommend.
I've been looking for more eco-conscious mascaras; although this does have a plastic tube inside, it has a bambo exterior, and seems for better than any non-plastic containers I've tried for mascara. It works very well, I've been using this mascara everyday and it has no irritation (as opposed to some mascara from other brands I've bought in the past). Would recommend!
I was looking for an eco-friendly, more natural powder foundation to replace the one I've bought from a major cosmetic brand in the past. I was nervous that this wouldn't work, but it matches my skin perfectly and works beautifully. Would recommend!
I do temp work and often don't know what the kitchen setup is like at the offices I go to. Some offices don't have dishwashers and only can provide disposable utensils (which are compostable, but that still requires energy from transport). So these utensils are a zero waste lifesaver. They tuck away easily in my bag and now I'm always prepared for whatever lunch I bring or the much needed sushi run on days that aren't going so well. I like that these can get through TSA as well so I don't have to worry about forgetting them in my bag and having them confiscated.
This is a great mascara! Elate Cosmetics is the makeup I use and love it.
This is the second time I bought this foundation. It covers so well!
I bought this stone after a failed zero waste deodorant cream. Very skeptical at first. But after using after shower and making sure the stone is wet, it has been effective. I rub on my armpits for about 30 seconds and have had instant results. No stains, no residue and no smell. Looks beautiful as well.
My dog hates showers and loves to rub himself in the dirt, leaving this white dog with a cast of gray. This soap not only completely removes all dirt but because I rub it on him directly, gives him a mini massage which he loves. His coat is super soft, bright white and very touchable. He now even allows me to wash his face. Love the soap.
What a great razor swap! It is much easier to use than I thought it would be and at first I was slightly intimidated. The housing for the blade does a great job covering it so I don't cut myself and the blades are sharp enough to where I don't feel the drag/pull while shaving like I did with a disposable razor. Don't be afraid to try this razor, it is totally worth the investment, and now I never have to buy another razor, ever!
