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.

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.

This month, 1% of your purchase will go to Ecology Ottawa!

We believe in business as a force for good and support the fight for environmental and social justice with our 1% for a cause programme. Every month, we choose a cause and select a not-for-profit organization in our community that is dedicated to it. We donate 1% of our in-store and online sales and promote and amplify their work on our social media platforms. Recent recipients include Assembly of Seven Generations, Capital Pride, Parkdale Food Centre and Jaku Konbit. This Plastic Free July, our donation will support Ecology Ottawa's work to make Ottawa the green capital of Canada!
