If buying gifts is on your agenda for this holiday season, why not consider giving environmentally-friendly gifts? I have compiled a list of my favourite Canadian online retailers that sell green and sustainable products. Buying in person is always the best option, of course, but online stores provide a wider range of options at times, especially if you want to ship items to friends and family. If possible, buy only what people need, to avoid adding waste to landfills.

  • P’Lovers: This only store sells eco-friendly products, and has physical stores located in Mahone Bay, Halifax, and Dartmouth in Nova Scotia.
  • Life Without Plastic: This store has been in business for a number of years, and is committed to providing products that are sustainable and that reduce our use of plastic.
  • Rawganique: This store sells mostly clothing and accessories made from hemp, linen, and organic cotton.
  • Green Cricket: This store sells personal and home products via two storefronts: Retail and Commercial. All the products sold are made by the company.
  • Just the Goods: Personal care items.  I started buying from this store when it had a few products on Etsy. The store has since grown, but continues to maintain its very high standards.
  • Ten Thousand Villages: This retailer provides handcrafted products made in a variety of communities around the world, with a focus on fair trade and local materials
  • Elate Cosmetics: Vegan beauty products with a focus on reducing packaging and using refillable products.
  • Cool Earth Products: Canadian-made products to reduce the use of plastic. I have been using their Carebags produce bags for years.
  • Hornet Mountain: Various eco-friendly products for personal use, the home, and animal companions
  • Bamboo Clothes: Self-explanatory.
  • Eco-Handbags: All bags are made from recycled materials.
  • Eco Suds: Soapnuts and wool dryer balls.
  • Penny Lane Organics: Personal and home products at reasonable prices. Their cleaning paste is excellent.
  • The Soap Dispensary: This brick-and-mortar store in Vancouver sells a large variety of refillable home and personal products. An online shopping site will be opening soon, which I would be interested in exploring, since I always prefer to refill whenever possible.
