What is zero-waste?
If you live zero-waste that means that you are actively working to not use single-use "disposable" items in your day-to-day life (including plastic), and you're mindful about consumption and resources in general.
We make zero-waste living more convenient so more people can join the fun!

About the Founder
Erin started this journey in 2018 when she was trying to figure out how to make a positive impact on climate change. To give you some context, Erin lived in Toronto and is still working a full-time corporate job. Working in a place where people threw out coffee cups in the trash and recycled their food waste, any individual impact she would make seemed negligible. Despite some skeptical friends she tested the feasibility of a zero-waste lifestyle by doing a 2-week zero-waste challenge. During the challenge she still ended up throwing away some plastic garbage but she realized how easy it was to make small changes to reduce a good amount of plastic from her life.
In order to go the full length she needed more supplies. Zero-waste products are surprisingly difficult to find (without plastic packaging!) and especially difficult to find in Canada. This is why she created Hera & Co, to help by not only providing the supplies people need to live a zero-waste lifestyle, but also by offering some pro tips on Hera’s Blog and on the Learn page.

Erin is super kind and delivered directly to me in the GTA, in-person! I love that. Since we're both local, it cuts out the time and costs of mail delivery, and I was able to get my items right away. Would highly recommend. I paid for my purchase with BTZ, which is a super bonus.

Hera & Co has a great selection of products and the checkout process was simple and incredibly easy. Everything arrived very quickly, in one package, exactly as shown on the website. I loved that the package was entirely recyclable AND plastic-free. Erin even included a hand-written note to us! We had a great shopping experience and we will definitely be buying here again.

A change-maker set out to make a difference. Had a good chat with Erin who went above and beyond for a same-day hand delivery. Highly, highly recommend.
