An easy way to cut down on single use plastic
Using a refillery is an easy way to reduce single-use plastics in everyday life. Instead of purchasing another bottle of shampoo, conditioner, all-purpose cleaner at the grocery store, you refill jars and bottles you already have with those products. If you live near Salt Lake City, Utah, Foster’s Refillery makes this easy by delivering to your home or business, and refilling containers for you.
Refills making a comeback
Single-use packaging has been the typical choice in the retail world since the plastic boom of the 1950’s. Cleaning supplies to bath and body products are usually sold in single-use packaging. Along the way some of the packaging is recycled, but recycling can be challenging or inconvenient and in many locations, recycling is not available. But things are changing! Airports, offices, schools and public buildings have implemented water refill stations to combat single use plastic water bottles. So what can you do to reduce single-use plastic containers? Refill!
Before the 1950’s, people used to put empty glass milk bottles on their doorsteps for a milkman to trade with full bottles of milk. Glass bottles are easy to clean, can be continually refilled, and when the time comes, it can be responsibly recycled. This model is what refilleries around the world are doing. We’re helping you refill all kinds of household goods with quality products, and reducing the amount of plastic being discarded.
