Welcome to Utility!

We are Portland’s first shop dedicated to the “zero waste” concept. We sell high-quality, earth-friendly home and body care products in bulk. We encourage you to bring reusable containers for refills, and we have a variety of reusable bottles and jars if you forget!

We also sell plastic-free alternatives for everyday household items including toothbrushes, kitchen scrub brushes, produce bags, beeswax wraps, and more. You can see our products here.

In addition to retail, we offer services to help you minimize and simplify your belongings, detox your home, plan zero-waste events, and look at business operations to reduce waste.

 
 

Our Products

We have done the research to find the highest quality products that help you reduce plastic and unnecessary waste. We vet the companies we work with to find makers who use effective ingredients that are safe and non-toxic for our bodies and our ecosystem.

We seek out products made locally in the Pacific Northwest and are actively working to feature more companies run by women and people of color. We do this because we believe in investing in our community and supporting the talented and caring makers who live here.

 
 

How It Works

Option 1: Come to a pop up, bring your reusable containers and fill them with as much product as you need. We sell containers in case you forget!

Option 2: Order products online and either pick them up or have them delivered.

@ the Solar Market

We are excited to return to the Solar Market (3316 N. Williams) on Sunday, 8/18. The Solar Market is a new event this summer featuring a mix of art, vintage, housewares and food vendors. 

If you can’t make it to a pop-up, you can opt for delivery or pickup service to get products.
