A new zero-waste mobile store has launched in Orlando and the owners want to help Orlandoans reduce their single-use plastic consumption by working with them to refill reusable containers.
Good Fills (Instagram | Website) is a new mobile retail concept that allows its customers to refill reusable containers with eco-friendly household soaps, detergents, and cleaners rather than using disposable containers they purchase in big box stores.
“A shockingly low amount of plastic actually gets recycled (downcycled, in actuality), so most of it ends up in our Orange County landfill. But they don’t stay there; those plastics break down and infiltrate water and food sources, accumulating in our bodies. An economic model designed for repair/reuse without wasting money and energy on disposables actually benefits our health and economy in the long run, and Good Fills is dedicated to helping bring this vision to our community.”– TRUNG TRAN, GOOD FILLS CO-FOUNDER
The products range from everything from all-purpose cleaners to dish soap and dishwasher pods, to toothpaste and vinegar and they carry a selection f eco-friendly brands including Common Good, Dropps, Nellie’s, Rustic Strength, Ruut, Unpaste, and Vermont Soap.
Good Fills can currently be found at the Audubon Park Community Market every Monday from 5-8 p.m. and popping up at events and markets around town. Follow them at the above links for more information.
