The refillery, opened in 2017, is the first of its kind in Calgary, catering to the zero waste lifestyle and saving you money on the products you love! Buy in bulk, save some dollars and keep those containers out of the landfill.
Read through the instructions below to ensure that we have what you need and that you have the best possible refillery experience when you come in.
Acceptable: Jars, glass bottles, Plastic containers (reused from food products or other), Containers from similar products that you have used up, Resealable plastic bags, Tins of non-reactive metal, Any non-reactive, leak-proof container with a sealable lid
Not Acceptable: Anything dirty or wet; Containers that leak or can’t be sealed, such as cardboard or anything without a lid; Reactive materials
The container that will work may also depend on the product you’re having it filled with. Can we easily get the product into the container — and will you be able to easily get it out? Will the container effectively hold the product? And of course, make sure all containers are clean and dry!
If you don’t have any containers to refill, don’t worry about it! We have lots of brand new empty, reusable (glass and PET plastic) containers here in the store for purchase.
HOW TO ORDER
Come to The Apothecary in Inglewood and let us know what you want, and how much. We will tare your container before filling so that you are charged for the proper weight of product.
