While wandering about in Sidney I saw a sign that said “ Soap Refill Centre Here”. This idea had been one of the things I’d been seeing popping up in Tweets in the UK almost daily. It’s an excellent way to reduce and reuse by bringing your containers back for refilling. Into Ecotopia I went and had a lovely conversation with owner Lisa Pedersen. While checking out the soap refills I discovered that they also carried TruEarth Laundry Detergent, a zero plastic alternative. I’ve purchased a package at $17.99 and will be trying it out. I have seen ads on Facebook before, but I don’t like to buy anything through Facebook. On their website it’s $19.95 and if you subscribe you save 35% bringing it down to $12.95 and free shipping. The company is Canadian. I’m happy to have the opportunity to try it out this way through Ecotopia!
My goal is to be able to replace each product I use with a plastic free product. In some cases I’ve been making these myself, but it is daunting and expensive to gather all the ingredients you need to begin. Soaps was a big one that I wasn’t going to be happy to tackle in the kitchen. I’m so glad to have found the gems inside Ecotopia. 😀💚
