How does Refilling Works?
What kind of container can I use for BYOC?
Any clean, empty and undamaged container with a lid that can hold liquids is great! It does not have to be a fancy glass bottle (but sure it can be!). The idea is to use what you already have!

Why Refill when you can just Recycle?
Unfortunately, recycling is not enough. As consumers we play a much more critical role than we might imagine. In fact, only ~9% of plastic ever made has been recycled.
Here are a few things that you probably did not know about recycling.
- Not all plastic is recyclable.
- Not all plastic is created equal.
- Coffee cups cannot be recycled.
- You cannot recycle dirty plastic.
- Recycling plastic downgrades its quality, which means it can only be recycle about 2 or 3 times before it downgrades in value and can no longer be used.
From the clothes we wear to the food we eat; plastic has become a household staple for families and communities around the world. Scientists estimate it takes somewhere between 450 -1,000 years for some plastics to decompose (some argue it will never decompose) Shocking, right? We thought so too. It is essential for us to understand this material. That is why reducing its use and refilling is such an important step to decreasing waste and our overall reliance on single-use plastics.
