10 Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Etsy Shops

At home online shopping? Etsy, the e-commerce site specializing in handmade and vintage goods published its list of Editors Picks. Their marketing campaign, #StandWithSmall is encouraging shoppers to support small, local businesses.


I've been scrolling through Etsy looking for zero-waste, natural products. In the spirit of the #StandWithSmall campaign, check out these 10 sustainable and eco-friendly Etsy shops I found!


  1. Handmade Habitat

  2. Phoenix K Creations

  3. OG & Me

  4. Change Toothpaste

  5. Eloise Et Moi

  6. Spirit of Vera

  7. Vegan Viridity

  8. Vita Beaty Boutique

  9. Zerra & Co

  10. Beego Handmade


Handmade Habitat: 100% Vegan Soy Candles


The candles Handmade Habitat make look beautifully minimalist, and their ingredients are minimal as well. They are all-natural, vegan soy candles with wicks made from cotton and recycled paper. Handmade Habitat also has bath salts made from pink Himalayan, dead sea, and Epsom salts.


Phoenix K Creations: All Natural Cosmetics and Herbal Remedies


If you're looking for organic raw vegan beauty and herbal remedies Phoenix K Cosmetics may have what you want. They have masks, washes, scrubs, and oils for your hair, body, and face. They also sell all-natural remedies for athletes foot, psoriasis and eczema, and poison ivy and oak. I think shops like these are great because they provide natural alternatives to products whose drugstore alternatives have long lists of ingredients.


OG & Me: Reusable Cloth Products


If you enjoy well made and aesthetically pleasing products and are willing to pay a little more for them, check out OG & Me. They sell a variety of reusable cloth products and are certified by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. Their products are 100% cotton so they can be decomposed when they eventually reach the end of their lifecycle.


Change Toothpaste: Handmade Toothpaste Tablets

Everyone probably already knows about bamboo toothbrushes, but have you heard about toothpaste tablets? This eco-friendly zero-waste alternative to tubes of toothpaste was formulated after consultation with a dentist and are handmade.


Eloise Et Moi: All Natural Plant Dyed Products


Eloise et Moi has a variety of products made from natural fibers and they are plant dyed. She has bags, napkins and hair bows, wraps, and ties. Her products are all stunning, high quality, and natural.


Spirit of Vera: Sustainably Sourced Sterling Silver Handmade Jewellery


If you're looking for pretty jewelry either for a gift or yourself, Spirit of Vera (or SpiritOV) has something of you. All her pieces are made from sustainably sourced sterling silver and are handmade.


Vegan Viridity: Vegan Eco-Friendly Handmade Bed, Bath, and Beyond

If you want handmade, cruelty-free, vegan, and eco-friendly products be sure to stop by Vegan Viridity's Etsy shop. Her products include shampoo and soap bars, soy candles, and crocheted baskets, cloths, and scarves.


Vita Beata Boutique: Handmade Natural Planatables Stationary


These cards from Vita Beata Boutique are seriously pretty. They're handmade and biodegradable. The best part is they're also plantable as the paper has seeds in it! I've received a plantable card before and I absolutely loved it! It feels bad to throw away a card, but keeping them can create clutter so I think plantable cards are an awesome solution.


Zerra & Co: All Natural Eco-Friendly Cosmetics and Skincare


I recently had to move home from University without a lot of time to pack. I ended up during a half-assed Mari Kondo -esque declutter, and ended up finally throwing away (almost) all of the expired makeup I never used.


As a result, I've been thinking more about the quality of the products I use. What draws me to Zerra & Co is how natural the products are; their handmade products are also vegan and preservative-free. They have a huge assortment of cosmetic and skincare products and a wide range of foundation shades. Zerra & Co definitely deserve to be checked out.


Beego Handmade: Reusable Waterproof Cloth Bags


Beego Handmade makes really high-quality, washable, reusable snack bags. If you're looking for an alternative to plastic ziplock bags look no further. The waterproof lining they use is certified by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and is free of lead, phthalates, BPA, and other harmful chemicals.

Another bonus is the wide variety of gorgeous fabrics to choose from. These would make a beautiful gift for a friend or family member you're trying to convert to a zero-waste lifestyle.
