REFILL to REDUCE and REUSE

What is a full-service refillery? It’s like the bulk bins in a grocery store, but *better* because we do all of the weighing, scooping, pouring, and refilling for you! Plus we carry a large selection of cleaning,  laundry, and personal care supplies in addition to pantry staples.

Why full-service? We realize that some people feel uncomfortable using bulk scoop bins in conventional grocery stores and as a result, they avoid bulk shopping altogether. Staff facilitating the refills solves that problem while also making  eco-friendly consumption easy and convenient.

Refill counter with menus and dispensers lining the wall. Signage reads: Why refill? Saves you money. Saves food waste. Saves packaging from landfill. Saves carbon emissions. Order Here! Fill your containers or we can pack in paper or glass!

For online orders:  
You can expect an email notification when your order is ready for pickup. If you prefer contactless pickup please call when you arrive and we will bring your order out to you. 352.225.3116

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

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
