Zero waste online shopping. Is it possible?

Online shopping and waste reduction usually don’t go together. Orders come with extra packaging: cardboard boxes, tape, plastic bubble wraps or foam peanuts.

At NU, we do everything to make your online purchase as zero waste as possible! 

The box, tape, label (including its liner!) and any filler used to protect the product are made of paper that is 100% recyclable and compostable. And whenever possible, we reuse boxes and packing supplies that we get from our suppliers.

We are a certified living wage employer

Treating our employees fairly is an investment in the long-term success of our business and the well-being of our community. We are vocal supporters of a living wage, paid sick days and fair scheduling practices.

In August 2023 we became certified by the Ontario Living Wage Network. We are proud to be the only grocery store in Ottawa to commit to paying a living wage, and one of only 8 in the whole Province of Ontario.
