With an increasing number of people hopping on the zero-waste movement, more and more stores around the Metro are following suit from cool shops that sell eco-friendly products to refilling stations that let you reuse old bottles to store shampoo, detergent, and other household necessities. If you've tried the latter, then you know by now that it's a great option to help both the environment and your wallet. And in case you've been meaning to give it a shot, but don't have any refilling stations near your area or you haven't had the time to drop by, here's another alternative: local zero-waste collective Loop now offers a refill delivery subscription service called Loop Refillery that brings plastic-free refills of cleaning products straight to your home!
Here's how it works: All you have to do is sign up for the Loop Refillery's two-month refill delivery subscription online and they will drop by your house to fill your reusable containers with laundry liquid, fabric conditioner, and dishwashing liquid, all of which are natural products from local brand Rainourish. The entire subscription includes one liter of each cleaning liquid per product per month. You can order the complete two-month package for just P999.
For those of you who like to take extra care in researching all your lifestyle decisions and environmental choices, you'll be happy to know that the amount included per delivery is based on surveys conducted locally by Loop to see how much each average household of four occupants would need every month.
And in case you're wondering how much waste you could avoid by practicing this plastic-free habit long-term, check this out:
For those just starting out on the zero-waste lifestyle, if you don't have any reusable bottles at home yet, you can opt to purchase those from Loop, too—they'll be included along with your first delivery. Plus, they also offer other organic, eco-friendly products and you can get some cool add-ons sent to your home (for an additional charge) along with your refill delivery.
Check out some of the available products you can get delivered:
Loop Refillery is taking sign-ups for their subscription service until February 16, so you might want to sign up ASAP before you miss your chance. The first refill for this run of the service will arrive at your home on the week of March 2 while the second refill will arrive on the week of April 6. Note that since this is Loop's first run at the program, they'll only be accepting sign-ups and orders from selected areas in Quezon City.
You can sign up for the Loop Refillery delivery subscription online for P999.
