The Refill Shoppe ( just launched their innovative Soapscription service: a zero-waste bath, body, home and cleaning product subscription service. Customers can now refill containers they already have anywhere in the US. The eco-friendly company & certified B Corp offers over 50 products in easily returnable pouches for an easy breezy zero-waste experience delivered right to your door.

“Less than 30% of plastic water bottles are recycled,” according to 5 Gyres Institute. “Roughly seven out of every ten bottles are trashed and from the landfill, many plastic water bottles end up in the ocean.” Founder and CEO, Michelle Stevens, grew up on a sailboat and learned from a very young age the detrimental impact certain products, and especially plastics, have on the environment. With a desire to make a difference in the world and a love for organic/non-toxic ingredients, Michelle set out to create a business that challenges the standards of consumerism. “We use water bottles, shampoo bottles, and plastic bags so briefly,” says Michelle “but those items last for more than 400 years and we know the effects it’s having on our wildlife and environment. It’s time to change the way we shop.”

To get started simply choose from one of our starter kites here or make your very own refill soapscription kit by ordering 2 or more zero-waste refill pouches from the Create/Refill/Soapscription section. Simply pick from 50+ products like shampoo, lotion, dish soap & more, choose a refill pouch size and select up to 6 scents to get started!

Here's how it works: we will include a pre-paid-postage padded envelope to return your pouches and a simple form to note any changes or additions. Once we get this back, we will email an invoice requesting payment online or over the phone. After we receive payment, we will get everything filled, scented & packed up safe to ship right back to you!
