Your Zero-Waste Guide To Bangkok

Fresh Fruits & VegetablesKhlong Toei Market

Many fruits and vegetables can be very difficult and expensive to buy organic. So if you are looking for a cheaper alternative for zero-waste fruits and veggies, grab all your reusable bags and head to Khlong Toei Market. Khlong Toei Market is the biggest wholesale fruit and veg market in Bangkok where almost everything is sold by the kilo with the option to use your own bag. Every fruit and veg you can think of and even tofu, rice and other food items can be purchased using your own bags and containers. 

Your Local Wet Market!

Head to your local wet market! Almost all local wet markets sell loose fruit, vegetables and sometimes even noodles and tofu. This usually means that almost everything can be purchased package-free if you bring your own bags and containers. 

Happy Grocers

Happy Grocers Offer organic fruit and veg in Bangkok! You can either visit their pop-up grocery truck and shop completely zero-waste, or you can order your fruits and veggies for delivery which comes plastic-free, usually in a brown paper bag or cardboard box! 

 

Food Delivery 

Pranaa – Food For Life

Pranaa offers delicious plant-based and mostly oil-free meals for delivery and gives you the option of having your food delivered in reusable tupperware. To use this option purchase Pranaa credits to order your meals.  

Tonklar Facai

Tonklar Facai offers delicious whole food, plant-based Thai dishes and also has an oil-free menu available. They have the option to have your food delivered completely package-free!

  1. Well… Not all of these stores are truly environmentally friendly.

    I was a customer of ZeroWaste Refillery until today when they sent me half of my order packed in plastic bags!

    After confronting them they made excuses with Covid and that some products could go bad and they were trying hard… I am still in shock that they call themself environmentally friendly and zero-waste.
