How does New Habitz work?
The New Habitz eco-friendly marketplace allows you to shop all of our brands in a single platform, with one shipping cost.
Your order is sent directly to the brands you order from. The brand will individually fulfill your order. So, for example, if you order from three different brands, you’ll receive three packages for the price of one shipping cost!
We don’t have huge warehouses of products like other marketplace sites. Warehouses create, as a result, waste within a brand’s supply chain. Through extra shipping, additional inventory, storage and electricity costs, etc.
To solve the warehouse issue, we created proprietary software to connect the available products from our brands to offer what you see on the marketplace. For instance, the product listings are updated every day, so that you always see the most relevant product information available.
How do you vet the sustainable brands?
Every brand that you see on the marketplace is completely hand-vetted. We have a relationship with all of the brand owners or representatives and we ensure that they practice sustainability in all aspects of their business.
The products we feature must therefore, among other things, be ethically sourced, vegan, cruelty free, and free from toxic substances. We also strive for, as much as possible, organic certifications.
How do you rank the product offer?
We exist to support all the sustainable brands that we offer on our platform. Therefore to keep it fair and equal our standard is to random display our offer. No fancy algorithm. If you wish, you can sort the product offer based on popularity, avarage rating, latest added items, price low to high and price high to low.

Delivery & Shipping
Do you deliver to me?
We’re an online marketplace and don’t sell our own products (just our sellers’), so delivery times and destinations will vary from seller to seller. Our sellers have the ability to set customised delivery templates, and the locations they choose will depend on the courier and services they have access to. You can easily find out if the seller you’d like to order from delivers to your location from the product page.
How Can I Cancel Or Change Or Return My Order?
In case you are not happy with your purchase? That’s okay!
We will refund your purchase within 5 working days, after our vendor accepts the return and confirms with us that the item arrived in the same condition in which it was shipped. You can return any unworn, unused items to the brand within 14 days of the delivery date for a full refund or exchange.
Within the specific brand store you can view the return policy of your ordered item. Use these instructions to exchange or return your item to the vendor from which you purchased it. After receiving confirmation from the brand that the item has been returned in good and unused order, we will refund the purchase amount and shipping costs.
For safety reasons, cosmetic and food products cannot be returned.
