Living lightly on the planet should be fun, beautiful, colorful, and it should make your life easier. It should never be another task on your to-do list. So we've done the hard work for you. We've personally tested and vetted each product in our shop with strict sustainability standards, and share them with a promise of zero greenwashing and complete transparency.
"This is absolutely my favorite product. It not only cleans your clothes without leaving a film, but it also smells great. By far my favorite. One jar lasts my household of four an entire month because you have to use so little of it."
"My new favorite dish soap. I've tried soap bars from other companies and this one blows them out of the water (hehe). It's SO bubbly, cleans so well, and will easily last a long time. Bonus: the smell is AMAZING. I will happily keep buying this, even bought several to give as gifts for friends for the holidays last year."
"I love love love this serum! I wish I took a photo of my face before I started using this product. I can actually see visible difference in my skin's tone, texture and clarity."

Wake to the waves
I'm the face behind this space. A zoo girl turned zero waste wannabe, a cat mom, a dance party junkie, and a pasta connoisseur.
I founded A Drop in the Ocean back in 2019 when zero waste meant endless DIYs, grocery store bulk bins, and more reusable straws than one person would ever need.
Today, zero waste has become so much more, and I am so here for it.
In this space, you'll find sustainable, refillable, and zero waste alternatives to all of the everyday essentials we use every day - from laundry detergent to mouthwash. All carefully curated and approved by moi, with total transparency and a whole lotta love.
Welcome, my friend, to A Drop in the Ocean.
I love this store! Local, woman-owned business delivering plastic-free, natural, and sustainable bath and home products! Krystina has lots of new products that are great finds. And I can trust her to find products that are actually good for the environment - she's a true eco-advocate, not a green-washer.
Carbon-Negative, Zero Waste Shipping
Our commitment to zero waste doesn't stop when your order leaves our hands. Your order will always be shipped 100% plastic-free, with reused boxes from our vendors, neighbors, and friends, plus reused packing paper, a post-consumer recycled paper label, and paper tape.
Beyond the packaging, with every purchase we plant 10 trees on your behalf. Once those trees are fully grown, they'll offset 480 pounds of carbon - each year. And when you check out using Shop Pay, Shopify itself offsets the emissions of your order, making your order double-carbon negative.
A Drop in the Ocean has shown me that it really is possible for a business to be fully transparent and put sustainability first! I really didn’t think that was something that was possible. Products are made locally, emissions are offset, packages are shipped with all reused and recyclable materials—it feels so good to be apart of a business like that!
1% for the Ocean
We're on a mission to use business as a force for good. That's why at least 1% of your purchase will always be donated to our ocean conservation partner, Vermilion Sea Institute.
