WHAT IS ZERO WASTE?
A Zero Waste lifestyle aims to reduce landfill-bound trash to a bare minimum.
And here at ERTH & CO., we believe that living a Zero Waste lifestyle should be easy, cost-effective, fun (it doesn't hurt that our products look beautiful to use too)!
HOW DO YOU HANDLE SHIPPING?
We ship everything 100% plastic free in an upcycled or 100% post consumer box with paper wrapping and paper tape. All of our shipping materials are 100% recyclable and compostable. Read more on how we pack.
WHAT IS YOUR RETURN POLICY?
We do not accept returns or issue refunds. This is because online retail returns are incredibly harmful to the environment. Reverse logistics results in burning more fuel (from trucks, ships, and airplanes), which in turn results in more carbon dioxide emissions.
Particularly in Singapore, our excessive consumption culture is a problem and we should really only buy things that we need and have fully researched on.
At ERTH & CO. not only do we have strict requirements of our vendors, we research and curate all our products to ensure that you as consumers are receiving only the best and most sustainable products currently available. Even so, we encourage you to purchase only what you need and avoid impulse buys. This mindfulness takes time - let's all work towards consuming less and creating less waste!
However, if you have any issues with your product, please email us and we will address these on a case-by-case basis.

I AM A BRAND AND WANT TO SELL ON ERTH & CO., WHAT DO I DO?
You can apply to be a vendor here! We require at least one sample of each product to test before we onboard a new brand. Samples will not be returned to the brand, regardless of whether or not the brand is taken on as a vendor. Why? To ensure quality, we are rigorous in our selection of products and test them out before we stock them on our website.
We want to ensure that we are only offering our customers the absolute best of what is out there, and to us, that means making sure that our team tests everything! If we don't take on your product, it doesn't mean it cannot happen in the future! We love giving feedback on how brands can improve their packaging and product to align with our mission and values and to push the zero waste movement together!
