This was a very unique place and I absolutely loved it! I loved that you can bring your own jars or choose from the... extras and fill your bottles with laundry detergent or more. We were able to find different soaps and reusable face wipes. I can see myself going here more often.read more

Neat place to reduce your plastic footprint! This small shop sells mainly packaging-free lifestyle goods (soaps, silk... floss, paper towels, etc.). You can bring in containers to hold your foods, but they also have we jars and such you can use (free) if you forget to bring them. The shop also has a small amount of other reusable goods (stainless steel cups, cotton net grocery bags, bamboo utensils). Interesting shop, and I will certainly be going back!read more

Clean, bright, and so fun! There's a ton of plastic-free alternatives to some of the products we all use most, like... toothpaste and laundry detergent. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and have good suggestions.read more

Really liked this place and excited to go back. I would be so happy if they eventually increase their stock of... non-pacakaged general "gift" items as there's not many places in town to buy high quality, thoughtful gifts, and there's generally so much waste associated with gift giving.read more

A beautiful little store with a very helpful and friendly owner; they have so many of the package free items I was... eventually planning to order (since they're hard to find in store), even the newleaf razors! Trying out some local shampoo and conditioner bars that smell amazing. Shall definitely be back!read more
