When we think of places that are most accommodating to zero-waste lifestyles, chances are that Malaysia comes up much later down the list, if at all. Fortunately, us not knowing about the zero waste stores in Malaysia is not indicative of its absence, and we’re here to share some zero waste stores with you today. Since Malaysia is rather vast, we’ve compiled this list in accordance with location for your convenience.
Zero-Waste Store in Subang Jaya
- Minimize Zero Waste Store
Besides being a one-stop shop for all your beans and grains needs, you can also refill your detergents, dried fruits and nuts, and purchase other eco-friendly household products from Minimize. Perhaps their most unique service is buying back your used cooking oil with no minimum weight imposed. This option is a solution to leftover cooking oil which is quite the hassle to dispose-of properly. The money you receive from your leftover cooking oil can then be used to purchase some items from Minimize! Sounds like you’ve got a win-win situation on your hands.
If you’d like to know more about Minimize or want to get a quote from them, you can visit their website at http://minimizezerowaste.com/ or call them at 016-287 6476.

If you’re unable to make the drive to get your needs from them, The Hive delivers nationwide and to Singapore. On their website, you can find most of your needs ranging from dried berries, nuts, and reusable feminine sanitary products. You can also find some brands you’ve probably heard of before like Amazin’ Graze. Their wide range of products make it a must-visit if you’re looking to get most of your groceries and necessities while keeping to your zero-waste lifestyle!
3. A Bit Less Bulk Store
Similar to The Hive, A Bit Less also provides bulk foods and shipping services. Their products seemingly cover everything from lip balms, detergent, tea, jam and so much more. We recommend checking out their website and having the most fun scroll you’ve ever had while shopping for essentials! From personal care to kitchen and household essentials, A Bit Less has just about something for everyone.

Seedy is another proof that in order to go zero-waste, you don’t need to give your favorite foods up!

Between Chinese herbs and eco-friendly beauty products, you’re going to want to browse their selection as soon as possible. You’ll also find noodles like their Homemade Veggie Pasta Spiral and Plain Pasta with Egg as well as popular options like Hock Chew Mee Shua, Organic Yee Mee and Glass Noodles.

2. Zero Waste Earth Store
Located in Eco Ardence, Zero Waste Earth Store (ZWES) allows you to purchase bulk-products in reusable 5kg containers. Their products along with prices are on their website for your perusal. Some of their newer products are both functional and heartwarming. For instance, they’ve newly released a lanyard as a part of their Kain.Ness collection. These lanyards were created using upcycled fabric and have been sewn by their B40 community tailors. You can also purchase their products online if you happen to live further away!
If you find yourself in any of the above areas, we highly recommend popping into one of the stores and checking it out yourself! Demystifying zero-waste can go a long way in taking that first step towards adopting a greener lifestyle. This is the beginning of what we hope will be many lists to come, as we would like to continue shining light on Malaysian businesses doing their part for the environment.
