Our Story

What began as a simple idea has developed into a visionary business model that helps address the urgency to make an impact by drastically reducing the ever-growing packaging waste.

Our Mission

To make zero-waste living accessible and affordable for everyone.

Our Eco Policy

Replacing single-use plastics and packaging with environmentally-friendly solutions means less waste in landfills, less pollution of air, water and soil and less over-extraction of natural resources. Sustainable packaging also reduces solid waste, water usage, electricity and emissions.

We use eco-friendly biodegradable detergent and a commercial dishwasher that has the highest standards in sterilization and cleaning solutions.

Our History

MapleStaple is a Vancouver based company founded in 2020 by former self-proclaimed environmentalist and entrepreneur, Christopher Ashby.

Before starting MapleStaple, Christopher studied Environmental Studies, Political Science as well as Marketing & Business in Vancouver, Canada. His deep concern for the environment and what we are doing to it, inspired him to start MapleStaple.

He is also a seasoned entrepreneur that has founded companies such as Appello Properties and Local Group Industries. Chris has extensive experience in business management and market development.

MapleStaple is rooted in the founder’s childhood adventures accompanying his mother to the Adelaide market (in Australia). His Mum’s bag was full of “clanging” glass containers which she would fill up with flour, oats, and honey at the market’s bulk store.

The combination of an authentic urge to care for the environment, his versatile upbringing, and business focus on customer experience, is the engine behind MapleStaple.
