Canada's first plastic-negative plant retailer

What is plastic-negative, exactly? For every ounce of plastic you receive from the company, whether in packaging materials or other, Fleur & Co. will remove twice that amount from oceans and landfills from around the world.

To reduce their plastic output, Fleur & Co. guarantees each item sold is wrapped in sustainably sourced paper and packaged in the correct box size, so no excess cardboard or packaging material goes to waste. 

This year alone, Fleur & Co. has dedicated itself to removing 6,322 pounds of low-value plastic waste from the environment (i.e. single use plastics, like straws and plastic bags) with help from rePurpose Global, the world’s leading Plastic Action Platform.
