The time to ACT is NOW!

Sign the Petition

The technology exists to save tons of plastic waste each year by refilling household goods like laundry soap and shampoo. Sign our petition to let big retailers know that you want access to refill technology in your local stores.

Can you imagine a world without plastic wrap or tin foil? What would you do without that nice cushy Charmin or if you had to use flour sacks for underwear?

Forget frustration free packaging, how about NO packaging?

Just when you thought she couldn't get any cooler, turns out dear 'ol grandma was an eco warrior in disguise. She's better at recycling than pretty much all of us. I mean, WAY better. Like, you know how much more amazing her cookies and pies turn out than yours (even with no online recipe or video tutorial from Cooking Magazine)? Well, it turns out that when it comes to reduce, reuse, refill, and recycle, it also doesn't get any better than grandma.

We asked a couple of these amazing women what life was like "back in the day" when it came to the way consumer goods were packaged. Not only are they adorable, they let us in on some fascinating ways they worked harder than us to save the planet - without even knowing it.


It's time to tell retailers and manufacturers that we want new technologies to replace plastic waste.

The government hasn't taken the steps necessary to ban plastic waste so it's up to us - the consumer - to petition retailers and manufactures for change.

The technologies exist to create refill stations at your local retail store so why you haven't seen them? Retailers and manufacturers are hesitant to install refill stations because it's a huge industry shift and, most importantly, they have no idea that consumers want it.

When it comes to change, consumers have to take charge. It's time for you to get involved and tell retailers and manufactueres that #WeWantRefill.

The #WeWantRefill movement is gaining momentum, but more must be done. To show retailers how serious you are about using refill technology, please take a minute to sign this petition to send a clear message to retailers that it's time to refill, not waste.



We will never share or sell your information. This petition will be sent to popular retailers and manufacturers to show them that we do care about the planet and want change! Occasional updates will be emailed to update you on the progress of the campaign.

Join in the conversation!

Share your thoughts about refilling household products and let consumer brands and retailers know that you want the choice to keep plastic out of landfills!
