Wish it Were Easier to Reduce Waste & Live more Sustainably?
Is your recycle bin overflowing with disposable plastic containers, but you know that very little of it will actually get recycled? Want to move to a smaller trashcan and not only reduce garbage that is sent to our landfills but save money?
Plastic has gone from a miracle material to a natural disaster in just decades. And while many amazing things would not be possible without plastic, we've certainly gone overboard as much of it is from things designed to be used only once then thrown away. It's become clear that our linear, take-make-dispose economy can't continue forever, but items packaged in disposable containers are still most often what we are presented with when shopping for home and personal care products. It's not always easy or convenient to seek out alternatives. The best of intentions can be derailed when you're under time constraints or doing errands with kids.
We can help.
Our company was created to make getting bulk goods and reusable products easier and more convenient for our South Sound community. After opening for business in 2019 at a wonderful summer market in Tacoma (La Paloma Marketplace), we launched our delivery service that now provides residents all over the South Sound with delivery of refillable and reusable products. We added our little shop in the North Slope neighborhood of Tacoma in September 2020 as another way to support you on your journey to a more sustainable lifestyle.
Our people and planet safe products have been carefully selected, we don't sell anything we wouldn't use ourselves. We are also proud to support many small, local, women owned and BIPOC owned businesses.
Learn more about getting refills delivered or visit our shop. Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, especially if you are unsure where to start. We are a judgement free zone.
Jen Dossetti Co-founded Tacoma Soap Refillery with her husband, Justin. Jen bought her first reusable shopping and produce bags about 20 years ago simply because she just couldn't wrap her mind around where all these disposable plastic items were going and how could it continue at such a rate. That began a long, always a work in progress journey toward reducing waste and trying to live more sustainably.
