Your zero waste journey

We feel that if everyone changed 1 or 2 habits in their life, the world would significantly benefit. We’re not experts by any means, heck you may even teach us a thing or two! Regardless, we're here to help educate and uplift you in a non-judgmental way. It's all about working together when it comes to sustainability.

The Alternative is a refillery and zero waste market located in Regina, Saskatchewan with the goal to inspire others to choose an alternative lifestyle by connecting them to quality, locally made and sustainable goods.
