Here are some recommended stores providing eco-friendly products you can find in Lombok.
For the last few years, as someone who applies the zero-waste lifestyle in my daily life since 2016, I notice that more people are open and actively campaigning this low impact and yet sustainable lifestyle, which I am super happy about. And one of the indicators that I could see is the increasing number of eco-stores / business available in Lombok with our site.
These eco-stores usually provide daily needs in bulk without plastic packaging such as detergent, soap, oil, grains, spices, fruits, tea, coffee and more. You also can find zero-waste essentials such as beeswax wrap, produce bag, loofah, and bamboo toothbrush. Here, I would like to list which places that you can visit to buy your daily needs with free-plastic-packaging and complete your sustainable lifestyle.
