“Refilling fits in with my values because I feel that it is my responsibility as a conscientious member of the earth to live my life as sustainably as possible. I recognize that I am in a position, that not everyone is, to spend my money and a little extra of my time investing in the future of our planet and I take that seriously! I also just get joy out of taking small actions that I can be proud of and refilling is one of those things.
Other than refilling, I try to reduce my waste in other ways; such as, using reusable bags, shopping bulk instead of packaged foods, and cleaning and reusing food containers (jars, to-go containers, etc.) I also try to buy the majority of my clothes, books, and housewares second-hand (at thrift stores, resale shops, yard sales, etc.)"
