Waiora was founded with a simple goal. To bring together and showcase the most innovative, sustainable and waste reducing manufacturers and products on offer today. Each product we offer has been carefully sourced from a manufacturer whose core values align with our own. They must offer a product that provides a viable and stylish alternative to single use or non-recyclable everyday items. They must be passionate about minimising the overall environmental footprint of their products, as well as fair to their suppliers or support charitable initiatives.
To this aim we are proud to offer the Sustainable Starter Set - a collection of our favorite plastic alternative products to help you on your waste reduction journey. Not only more affordable than buying these items individually, buying through Waiora means saving significantly on shipping costs and their associated environmental impacts.
Detailed product information is available via the title links below, as well as a brief outline here:
