I really think that The Future Of Zero Waste Is Refillable Packaging!
You can’t swing a cat without hitting at least one single-use plastic item, I mean it’s literally everywhere. I was in India recently working on something very special regarding plastic and its human effects, more to come later in May. What was truly astounding was the amount of plastic floating around, especially from our beloved beauty products and as many of us look for ways to reduce our footprint and move towards a more #zerowaste lifestyle, it’s time to rethink how we buy and consume beauty, hair and skincare products.
Did you know that 120 billion units of packaging are produced in the global cosmetics industry annually? #plasticsucks
Once upon a time, we used to have milk delivered to our doorstep. I remember this clearly when I was a kid!
Could this old-fashioned system be the future of packaging? A few Canadian companies think so and are leading the charge by offering refills to help people cut down on the packaging.
At Eco + Ampur you can shop a selection of your favourite green beauty brands, like Graydon, Lines Of Elan, Sapadilla, and Bathorium, with no waste! Bring a container to fill, or pick-up one of ours and pay by weight.
Saponetti Inc. (inspired by Ital. sapone = soap) is Toronto’s first and only soap delivery company offering premium, Canadian-made, environmentally friendly and hypoallergenic, soaps and detergents for home and personal care. They bulk-buy all their products and deliver them to you in reusable glass mason jars.
Place your order online and they bring it to your home or business, picking up your empties – just like the milkman used to do. It virtually eliminates the waste stream – from the factory to your home and beyond.
