Where to find eco-friendly product suppliers that are from Canada?

I've recently set-up a shopify store online, and since then, I have been on a tedious journey of searching for eco-friendly product suppliers for my store. I've tried going on Salehoo and Oberlo to search for suppliers, but with little to no luck. The suppliers that I did end up finding are either from China or from far away countries that could take forever to ship to potential customers that I'm trying to market here in Canada. I found one Canadian wholesale supplier of eco-friendly products, but unfortunately, they don't do dropshipping. It's really frustrating to look for suppliers for products that seem to me, are rarely produced- despite the fact that more and more people are becoming environmentally aware and are choosing to live sustainably. The lack of available eco-friendly products out there in the market is probably the reason why it's so difficult to find suppliers that make them. There are days where I feel like giving up on my store, but I am still determined to push through this. If anyone knows of any Canadian or US suppliers for eco-friendly products that do dropshipping, please let me know. I'd appreciate it. Thank You!

I'm having the same problem. Printful do some eco products, like some of their shirts, but they use plastic in the packaging, which is something we're really looking to avoid. There's an eco drop shipper in the UK, but shipping to the US is probably worse for the environment than using plastic.

 

Really struggling to find a way through. did you find anything?

Hi @lecourageuxame 

 

Eco-Friendly products are recently trending ones. But most of the dropshipping suppliers from China only.   Here you can USA Eco Product suppliers as category wise.

 

Best of Luck 🙂

Hello, has this availability improved? 
I'm looking to launch a shop with a specific product in mind, but then ideally launch additional products. However the motto is earth first, and that means eco friendly packaging, zero plastics, recycled &/or biodegradable materials. What is shopify offering for in regards to customers who demand a planet-first approach?

Which company is this by the way in the UK? I wonder if there is a carbon neutral way of getting this shipped over to Canada. I want to say I am also struggling with this. The products and resources are limited.

Hi all,

I hope you are doing great. I can feel your struggles to some extent. I hope you have found your dropshipping supplier. 

 

But in case you haven't found and are open to a better option, I can suggest a disruptive solution for apparel stores. NITEX is disrupting the apparel industry. Anybody now can launch and operate apparel brands/stores with a supply chain like that of Zara and H&M. NITEX the entire responsibility of design, manufacturing, QC & shipping with no extra cost. It gets you all the organic, bamboo & recycled products and other products within 30-90 days. You provide designs or NITEX gives you own designs for new seasons. 

NITEX is mainly inspiring drop-shippers and other small & medium size brands & buyers to expand the business with a strong supply chain like that of Zara and H&M.  Write to me for any support regarding the apparel supply chain from Bangladesh, China, Vietnam to anywhere in the world.

Any luck with this? So far I see Spocket as the best option but after doing research online I haven't heard the greatest feedback about Spocket.
