Here at EORTH we’d like to take you back to a time before plastic packaging, before single use plastic products — before plastic.
EORTH is an old English word for Earth. A period in time before plastic existed on our planet.
By now you are more than likely familiar with the global crisis of plastic pollution, with the biggest offender being single use plastic items.
EORTH was founded as one way to help combat this global crisis.
EORTH’s goal is to stop plastic at the source. If we’re able to turn off the plastic tap, you are provided with the best selection of plastic free household goods Australia has to offer.
Initially we strived to open a store that was 100% (single use) plastic free, and that is our long-term goal. What we found however, is that it’s very difficult to source products that meet the 100% plastic free criteria. As we began the ordering process to stock EORTH we soon realised that sourcing plastic free packaging on the outside was only the first step.
At EORTH you won’t find products housed in plastic containers as we have sourced products packaged in cardboard, metal and glass or naked packaging! You may however find some stickers, tamper proof security seals or biodegradable plastics from our suppliers in some of the products we supply. No, it’s not the perfect solution, but we believe this is a better option than purchasing plastic bottles and jars that may or may not get recycled.
We’re always seeking alternatives to products that contain any plastic, and welcome your feedback. EORTH Australia’s Plastic Free Shopping Store.
