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.
