Refillery: Reduce Packaging by Re-using and Re-filling
So how does the refillery work? It’s simple! Bring clean jars, bottles, or containers to the shop and the team will help you fill them up with whatever you need. This reduces your environmental impact by reducing your consumption of single-use packaging. You can shop for all of your grocery essentials and reduce the amount of waste you consume at the same time with The Apothecary!
Find food in bulk for baking like flours, sweeteners, and chocolates; cooking essentials like oils, spices, and herbs; and pantry staples including condiments, grains, and snacks. In addition to reducing your waste consumption, the refillery is a great way to support local. In the shops’ selection of beverages, find Jolene’s Tea House teas from Banff as well as Devil’s Head Coffee and Wild Tea Kombucha produced right in Calgary.
Next, take care of your self-care with The Apothecary’s bath and body offerings. Take your pick from the soaps, shampoos, conditioners, hair styling products, and even toothpaste to cover your bathroom essentials. Then, give yourself an at-home spa treatment with cleansers, luxurious oils, hydrating masks, and rich balms.
Home cleaning gets an eco-friendly remix with The Apothecary’s selection of dish soaps, laundry soaps, and surface sprays. You can supplement your refilled products with DIY products made with raw materials and liquids/carriers available at the refillery. Not sure where to start? Let the team know what you’re looking to do and they’ll help you find the materials that you need.
