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.Shop now
We don’t deliver by bike yet, but are working on it!
We work with a local delivery service for grocery deliveries and use Canada Post’s Expedited Service for Canada-wide shipping. We offer free shipping and delivery for orders over $100. Our shipping and delivery fee for orders under $100 is $12.Shop now
Fair employment practices
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.
We also recognize the strain that Covid-19 has put on essential workers. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we're closing our doors on Monday to offer one paid mental health day a week to our full time staff, among other benefits.
