So what exactly is Eco Inspired all about?
We are a zero waste and refillery online and pop-up shop located in Richmond, Virginia set out on a mission to help people reduce their dependency on single-use and plastic bath & body, cleaning & laundry, kitchen, items. We offer reusable, plastic and package free items to help you make the simple sustainable swaps to lead a more eco-friendly lifestyle!
Cool! Explain to me a bit more what zero waste and refillery actually means?
A refillery provides a convenient way to reduce single-use plastics in everyday life. Rather than purchasing a new container each time you need a product, you simply refill extended-use containers with those products.
The goal for zero waste and refillery shops is to reduce plastic waste.
I recycle though, isn't that enough?
Recycling is great! However, we have become so dependent on the recycle part of the 3 R's (reduce, reuse, recycle), that there's plastic pollution problem facing the world today. Did you know that only 8-9% of recycled materials that people put in their recycle bin actually get recycled? The rest typically lends in a landfill or in our waterways which negatively impacts our wildlife and oceans.
Eco Inspired provides a convenient way for you to obtain many of your everyday items (laundry, cleaning, health and beauty) that are affordable, sustainable, and package free.
