It goes without saying that years of industrialisation have deeply affected our planet. Mass production of items have led to a surge in waste and as we all know, many of them end up in landfills and oceans.

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to minimise waste or go no-waste altogether, shopping at zero waste stores is a good start. We’ve put together a list of some of these stories all around Malaysia. Let us know what you think and happy shopping!

Similar to Seedy, you can purchase cooking, cleaning and food products here. Once you’re in the store, you first need to weigh your container on one of their scales and stick the label it gives you on the container.

Next, fill in your container(s) with as much product as you like and then head over to the payment counter. There, your container will be weighed again and you can pay for what you took.

Go Bulk is based in Tamarind Square, Cyberjaya and these are their operating hours:

  • Friday: 12-8pm
  • Saturday & Sunday: 10am-6-pm
