Each April, Earth Day inspires us to take a serious look at how we can leave a healthier planet for our children. One trend shows families attempting to achieve a “zero-waste” or waste-free lifestyle, reducing what goes into their trashcan to nearly nothing through composting, recycling, and reducing single-use products. While going zero-waste takes true dedication, taking a step toward less waste is something every family can achieve. A collection of boutiques around town help families reduce single-use packaging and switch to more earth-friendly home and personal care items at the same time.
In addition to nontoxic, sustainably-produced home products, EcoMountain in Denver’s Sunnyside neighborhood and at Park Meadows Mall in Lone Tree offer a Handmade Homecare area. Families can make their own laundry detergent or all-purpose cleaner using the store’s bulk ingredients and recipes.
Homefill’s RiNo location provides local, organic, and responsibly sourced products. Bring clean containers to refill with dish soap, laundry detergent, household cleaners, and body care products like shampoo and Castile Soap.
Over in the Tennyson neighborhood, Joy Fill curates a collection of refill cleaners, soaps, and personal care and beauty products intended to reduce the amount of packaging and single-use plastic waste. Replenish household products and peruse the selection of sustainable products in the cheery eco-boutique.
This one-stop refill shop gives Boulder families a spot to fill up on household cleaning and body care products that are naturally biodegradable, reusable, and made from sustainable products.
Located at Stanley Marketplace in Aurora, Zero Market carries 1200 products designed to help families live with less waste. Buy bulk items or bring your own containers to refill earth-friendly items.
