To date, The Refillables have refilled more than 49,501 containers, diverting these containers out of landfill sites in Quang Nam. It hopes to ease the overuse of single-use plastics and make environmentally friendly home and personal care products affordable and accessible to everyone. It is more important than ever that it reuses containers. The Refillables already have to help ease the burden on overflowing landfill sites. Additionally, by refilling with environmentally friendly products, we can minimize the toxic and harmful chemicals often used in commercially-made products from getting into our eco-system, and eventually into our bodies.
