Tatler Malaysia: 5 Places To Shop Sans Plastic Packaging

Plagued with guilt about all the plastic that comes with shopping? Us too. From cotton swabs to individual pieces of fruit, practically everything is encased in non-biodegradable packaging, no matter how small. Thankfully, these shops are doing their part to protect our planet.


1/5 The Hive Bulk Foods

The first zero waste store to grace Malaysian waters, The Hive Bulk Foods has two physical outlets in Bangsar and Ampang plus an online platform. Eco-warrior Claire Sancelot joins forces with refugees and female entrepreneurs to craft in-house products such as bamboo toothbrushes and muslin laundry bags. As its name implies, bulk foods are big here; stock up on dried beans, gluten-free flours and ‘naked’ or spiced nuts to last several months. We’ve also signed up for hands-on classes on a wide range of topics, from ‘DIY Beeswax Wrapping’ to ‘Tropical Urban Edible Gardening.’92A, Lorong Maarof, Bangsar Park, Kuala Lumpur | 1F, Hock Choon Supermarket, 241 Jalan Ampang,Kuala Lumpur | 017-680 4221| claire@zerwastemalaysia.com | www.thehivebulkfoods.com
