Plastic has become a big problem and it is only getting worse. We thought we had an easy solution to the plastic problem with recycling but 91% of plastic worldwide ends up in the ocean or the landfill. It’s time to kick the plastic habit.
How can we reduce plastic when it is everywhere? Look around your bathroom and your kitchen. It is EVERYWHERE! Refilling is one of the most impactful ways to kick plastic to the curb!
FILL is a refill store where customers can truly decrease their plastic use by filling their cleaning and hygiene products using their existing containers! You will be able to refill shampoo bottles, conditioners, body wash, face wash, hand soap, toothpaste, deodorant, face cream, hair spray, hair gel and more. Cleaning products can be refilled too. Dish soap, laundry soap, dish washer tabs, spray cleaner, all purpose cleaner, bathroom cleaner, window cleaner, laundry
soap, fabric softener and more.
And of course we can’t forget about the reason we are refilling, our children. "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors but we borrow it from our children’s future." We do offer a variety of baby and children's products for refilling. Our Sweet Pea bubble bath is an all time favourite!
Zero waste packaging is also available: beeswax wraps, produce bags, lunch containers and more.
Kelowna has some great businesses that do a great job with organic, local and bulk foods so FILL will not carry food products.
With each refill, customers will be able to see the direct impact of their purchase with a running tally of plastics FILL customers have saved from entering our environment. The original FILL opened in Vernon in December 2019 with an average of 1500 plastics saved per week!
FILL aims to provide Eco friendly, local and Canadian products whenever possible. 90% of products at FILL are organic or plant based brand name products with about 10% of products that are considered regular grade for those that are interested in plastic reduction but not looking for organic products. No judgements here! The regular grade products aren’t grocery store brands, as the bigger corporations haven’t been interested in supplying products in the refillable format.
Let’s face it, some of use want the be sustainable but convenience is a huge factor. FILL offers online ordering with in-store pick-up. Browse the FILL website to order online and have it ready for pick-up the same day.
