Shopping can be hard for me, as I'm always trying to find products that are ethical, zero waste, and free of harmful products. But I think my wait is over...why? Because I found Cero!
Located just off of Broadway Boulevard in Tucson, Arizona (228 S Tucson Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85716), Cero is a vegan and zero waste store that offers the best products for your home and body. When you purchase an item here, you don't have to feel guilty that you're contributing to ruining the planet, because everything here is designed with the planet in mind. Reusing and recycling are a big deal here, and I can't say that about a lot of stores!
I came into contact with Cero last year when I reached out about selling products at their store. At the time, they were brand new spot, focusing on products that a lot of places in the Old Pueblo really don't do. In the past year, I've gotten to know the owners Val and Nelene. They're great businesspeople and even better people. Why? Because they're not just here to make a buck, they're here to make the world a better place. Being a part of that is a huge honor!
Around The Store:
As you can see below, this is a clutter-free store, filled with only the essentials that you need. That's a good thing for this gal, because too much stuffed in the aisles can be a lot to take! So good points already for the clean presentation.
Cero is designed for you to purchase their products without wrapping them in wasteful plastic or aluminum. To wit, I'd recommend you bring a jar of your own if you come to refill products like dish soap or laundry detergent. It's a super-affordable way to purchase household essentials and honestly, it's gonna wind up being cheaper too.
You'll see plenty of products from your's truly on there too, so stop by and check it out...I consider it very big time of me to be in there!
Besides that, Cero also sells items like shampoos, razors, straws, cleaning brushes, tote bags, and even shot glasses. Yes, because you CAN party sustainably! I'm gonna note that...
My Favorite Product:
I just can't get enough of this Soy Wax Candle from Art Over Order. I always appreciate a local company that offers handmade vegan and cruelty-free products, and these candles act as agents of calm on a chaotic day. Stick one in your office and the day becomes a little easier to take -- I'd know because I use them a lot!
Better yet, the candles come in a reusable jar, so you can come back and refill your order at Cero. Good for the environment and your soul!
Product above: the "Naps in the Garden" candle, which contains smells and ingredients of lilac, potting soil and fern. Good for people that want to live a growth mindset, just like a healthy plant!
