Local Businesses We Love: Zero Co
The story of a Victorian company on a mission to eliminate single-use plastics
The brainchild of Mike Smith, the Victorian-owned and operated business started in 2019, aiming to tackle the global plastic program. Offering a range of care and cleaning products, Zero Co delivers orders directly to your door alongside empty dispensers, colour matching refill pouches as well as a pre-paid postage satchel. The customer then empties the contents of the satchels into their dispensers before sending the empty refill satchels back to Zero Co. Here, they are cleaned and refilled before being sent back to the customer, thereby eliminating the need for single-use plastics.
Be sure to check out the starter boxes, a product that allows you to receive a 2–3-month supply of various essential household items, including handwash, body wash, laundry liquid, multi-purpose spray, dishwashing liquid, dishwasher tablets, stain remover, shower cleaner, toilet cleaner or air freshener.
Zero Co also offer dispenses made from plastic waste found in the ocean, with refillable pouches created from recycled materials diverted from landfill. The business also recently commenced the Oceans 21 campaign, an initiative aiming to collect 21 tonnes of ocean waste and convert it into reusable bottles. For each starter box purchased, the company donates $5 towards their clean-up initiative, ensuring that all ocean wastage is removed and put to better use.
