Zero Waste Products

Rock Hill Community Fridge


As a retail store, The Mercantile’s goal is to provide our customers with zero-waste products that do not harm our planet.

As a local seller of zero-waste products, we make it easy to purchase sustainably made, biodegradable, and waste-free goods.

We want to do our part to limit waste and keep our planet green, so our Zero Waste Bar is stocked with high-quality products that meet those standards. We carry brands such as OLA Bamboo, No Tox Life, and City Made Green. Using products like these allows us to embrace the zero-waste lifestyle and limit the negative impacts single-use plastics have on the environment.

Zero Waste Products & Shopping


Zero Waste: Personal Care

Did you know that every plastic toothbrush created since their invention in the 1930s still exists? They account for some of the billions of single-use plastic items thrown away every year worldwide. They end up in landfills, in the oceans, and on beaches and contribute to the pollution of our planet.

Using zero-waste personal care items—such as toothbrushes with biodegradable handles—is a small change that can have a big impact on our environment. The Mercantile carries reusable personal care products like these at our Zero Waste Bar.


Zero Waste: Household Cleaners

Simply swapping out your disposable household cleaning products for zero-waste, reusable products is a great way to make a big, positive change for the environment. For example, replacing your non-biodegradable paper towels and sponges with biodegradable alternatives adds up fast. The Mercantile carries household cleaning products like these at our Zero Waste Bar.

Zero Waste: Food and Drink

Did you know that it takes eight gallons of water to make just one paper plate? You can help the environment by changing your eating and drinking habits to include zero-waste utensil sets, straws, bowls, and bags.

Start limiting the amount of waste you produce by switching from plastic bags to reusable shopping bags, or by wrapping leftovers in Meli wraps instead of plastic wrap. We carry a variety of food and drink products like these at our Zero Waste Bar.
