Are refill stations the answer to packaging waste?

Currently retail packaging for cleaning chemicals, personal care products and beverages is single use, however that is changing. With a goal of eliminating waste, eco-conscious companies are setting up in store refill stations to reuse containers. The motto for The Refill Place, stores that offer refills for personal care products, laundry detergent and cleaning chemicals, is “Refill, Not Landfill.”  The Common Good company offers customers refill options for their hand soap, dish soap, all-purpose cleaner and laundry detergent. While it may be challenging to reduce the amount of waste produced by single use packaging, companies offering refill options can make a significant difference in reducing packaging waste.
