Our aim is to help people stop using single use plastic. Sadly huge amounts end up in our oceans, it poisons our planet from the moment it’s made.
We have designed our service to deliver everyday, essential products to people, helping them shop as waste free as possible without compromising on products or quality.
Single-use plastic is used for packaging in many everyday products, including shampoo, soap, washing up liquids, makeup and food. Now more than ever we need to support and help the environment and one way to do that is shop more sustainably and create zero waste.
Despite efforts to recycle, a staggering amount of single-use plastic ends up in the oceans and as a result, poisons our planet as well as emitting carbon when manufactured . The world is facing a climate emergency and a plastic pollution disaster. We need to take steps to become more eco-friendly in the way that we live and shop.
Zero Waste Delivery is providing a solution: A zero waste refill company that delivers refill household products directly to your door, meaning you don’t need to throw away any single-use plastic packaging ever again, because you’re not buying any!
Our zero waste delivery service removes the hassle of refilling yourself with our online zero waste refill shop which is both convenient and beneficial. You can choose between refills in pre-filled re-useable bottles or our refill from the van service. We deliver straight to your door in our zero-emission full electric vans.

The Zero Waste Delivery Company is a home delivery refill service that brings all the benefits of refill to your doorstep which takes the hassle out of refilling yourself
Zero Waste Delivery:
Containers are refilled and re-used
No throw-away plastic packaging – products are delivered unpackaged or in re-useable bottles and containers
All containers are refilled and re-used – There is no single use plastic and no plastic bottles are thrown away
The whole operation from our warehouse to your doorstep is zero carbon. We use renewable energy and all our vans are full electric vehicles
We use zero-emission full electric vans to ensure that our part of the supply chain is zero carbon
Refill and reuse is one of the significant changes that you can personally make to help stop the climate emergency
We know that we should not throw plastic away, but what's becoming clear is that recycling is not the solution either. A lot of plastic still ends up in the oceans, heads to landfill overseas or is incinerated, all of which damage our environment.
Only 45% of our recycling actually gets recycled, this has only increased by 3% since 2010.
Only a fraction of recycled plastics end up in new products (that are again single use) and compostable single use plastics are also not a solution as they use as much carbon in their manufacture as normal plastics and still have to be disposed of.
All in all plastic is poisoning our planet and we need to find sustainable ways away from it.
Refuse, reduce, reuse.
There are very limited refill stations although the number is growing but the range of products is often very limited. They rarely have convenient parking. Refilling is very time consuming, very awkward to do yourself and you have to carry back heavy bottles once filled
Zero waste is as much about zero carbon, zero emissions and zero fossil fuel energy as it is about zero packaging. The only way we can offer a true zero waste home delivery service is with electric vehicles
Recycling does not work. More often than not it will end up in land fill, be incinerated or get into water systems and eventually the oceans causing massive problems for wildlife. The plastic that does end up being recycled will waste a lot of energy when it is collected, sorted, cleaned, processed and then manufactured into a new product. This waste can be avoided with refill and re-use
Although they use less plastic than a conventional plastic bottle, they are still single use which means they waste materials and energy in their manufacture and distribution and after use they either have to be recycled or go to waste – this is not a good solution
