First, whenever I go to buy something I look to see where things have been made. I always figure the ‘best’ way to live ethically is to buy ‘made in Canada’. (Has anyone watched ‘American Factory’ on Netflix? Yikes- people in China working incredibly long hours!). Next, PLASTIC. UGH- so much plastic out there. I love shower gels, hair shampoo, and hair spray. Deodorant? I was almost willing to go smelly as I couldn’t stand all the plastic. And then …. I found the refill stop- http://www.therefillstop.com
I swear, it changed my life! They have shampoo, shower gels, hair spray, and my absolute favourite- http://www.unfurlwellness.ca
This deodorant is the BEST. And it is made by a small business owner. Actually, by buying at this ethical store, you support small business run by women. Incredible!
The refill stop is located in New Westminster, close to Douglas college and the skytrain station on Carnarvon. I highly recommend browsing this lovely shop
