Our global waste problem
Today our world faces a global waste problem. Our addiction to plastic and single-use practices is littering our oceans and polluting our water supply. Furthermore, our consumption habits are responsible for 26% of carbon emissions produced in the U.S., from the extraction of raw materials to transportation and manufacturing.
The Wally Shop was created to tackle an immense source of waste; single-use packaging. 8.3 billion tons of plastic has been produced and of that, 6.3 billion tons has become waste. Single-use packaging is a huge part of this waste and contributes massively to the current epidemic of plastic in landfills and oceans. By switching to reusable packaging, we can stop a huge source of waste.
Sustainable by design
By manufacturing all of our packaging out of post-consumer recyclables, we are supporting the global recycling market, a market that continues to struggle to compete with the low price of oil and raw materials. By switching from single-use packaging to reusable packaging, we are able to eliminate waste completely.
Best yet, we are able to lower costs for you, our customers. By not having to pay for the packaging and branding by the manufacturers, you are able to ultimately save!
We support local farmers and because we buy in bulk, we are able to really scrutinize the quality and ensure that whatever we have in the shop is the freshest and highest quality out there. We believe to be sustainable actually results in a higher quality of life and does not need to be more expensive.
It doesn’t take much effort to make sure what you put out in this world can be properly reclaimed.
Fresh ingredients at bulk prices
We curate the selection of products sold on our platform to make sure that we are only offering high quality, fresh ingredients. Whenever possible, we source from local producers, who prioritize sustainability, taste and nutrition, making sure that your food does not have to travel unnecessary distances, preventing the release of unnecessary carbon emissions and ensuring your products arrive fresh. On the Shop page of our platform, you will be able to see exactly where the product was produced, by whom and how, giving you a voice in the matter.
We also limit the amount of selection per product we have on offer to make sure we can give you the best possible prices. We are able to give you bulk prices for individual quantities for the things you love.
