When are local orders delivered?
Not Wasted has partnered with a local Calgary delivery service company to fulfill local shipments. We aim to deliver local orders placed before 11:00 am on the same day between 1:00-5:00 pm. Orders made after 11am will be fulfilled the next day between 9:00 am-5:00 pm.
How are orders packaged?
We often pack local deliveries using oxo-biodegradable bags. Oxo-biodegradable bags are environmentally friendly and made from 100% degradable plastics that will biodegrade over time once discarded. We use shipping boxes for some orders depending on the size of the products.
All orders are packed securely for shipping. During the winter, orders are packaged using insulated bubble wrap to help protect our products from the cold.
For my order, do you suggest that I order a minimum amount of items?
We like this question, and we want to be transparent with you. Shipping is not necessarily inexpensive as alluded to above. For the best bang for your buck, we suggest medium to large size orders (for example - two 4 or 6 packs of the same or different brands, or our variety/mixed package bundles). By placing orders with multiple products, you'll save money on shipping costs, and you'll have delicious non-alcoholic drinks on-hand for longer!
For non-alcoholic craft beer cans, if you’re interested in trying various options, use our custom order services and we can bundle several individual products. Alternately, you can view our mixed-themed packages that offer a great bundled rate and allow you to sample products from various brands.

I’m pregnant – can I consume your non-alcoholic drinks?
Great question, and it can be a debatable one. Although our non-alcoholic beverages offered are “alcohol free”, the alcohol content of our non-alcoholic beverages ranges from 0.0 % ABV (alcohol by volume) to 0.5% ABV. We suggest contacting your doctor for their professional opinion to err on the side of caution, but we do know of many customers who drink these non-alcoholic products confidently.
How long does the product last?
Depending on the product, the shelf-life can be anywhere from 8 months to 2 years. We suggest carefully looking at the product to confirm when it expires. On some of the cans/bottles it will identify how long the product is good for once it has been opened. But I think we can all agree, once you order and receive your products, you'll be enjoying it quickly!
I’m not familiar with non-alcoholic (or no to low) beverages, nor what I might enjoy. What do you suggest I order?
We're happy to help introduce you to the many non-alcoholic options available! All the products we curate are high-quality non-alcoholic beverages, ranging from craft beer to spirits to wine and sodas. Everyone’s taste palates are different, but we’ve made sure we’ve selected products that can accommodate each customer's interests. We suggest reading through product profiles to have a better understanding and reading the reviews on the products where available. If you’re still not sure what you'd like, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be happy to offer our suggestions based on your preferences!
Some of your products are sold out or coming soon – how can I be notified of these products when in stock?
With some product being popular and some product on it’s way, we will continue to be diligent managing the inventory so it is readily available.
To be notified when inventory is in stock, go to the product of interest and you will see a section that will say “want to be notified once this product is available?” then add in your email address and we’ll send you an email as soon as we have this particular product on the online store. It will be first come first served once we have it in stock. If you want to buy the product in advance, although it is not available, and don’t want to miss out on getting it when it is released, send us an email and we can do a pre-purchase order.
I don't see the beverage/product I want to buy, can you still sell it to me?
We can - depending on the item of course. We have contacts with various partners that may have access to what you are looking for. We're always thirsty for new vendor partnerships and will continue to grow our portfolio of high-quality non-alcoholic beverages to feature on our site.
