Ferndale Welcomes Its First Refillery!

Let's take a moment to talk trash. We create a lot of it. We recycle some of it and if we're being honest we know our addiction to single-use plastic isn't good for us, but we also don't know what to do about it. Sure, we can reduce, recycle, and reuse, but to make a significant impact we need a packaging revolution. If you're ready to revolt and find a new way to be a little bit kinder to the planet, you will love Ferndale's newest shop Walking Lightly.  

This new refillery specializes in zero-waste home and body goods, including soaps, washes, scrubs, removers, shampoos, bath salts, and more. Everything is sold by weight, which means you can purchase as much or as little as you need. The best part is it's easy. You can either bring a clean and dry container and fill it up (price based on weight) or purchase a reusable container from the shop that they can refill over and over again every time you visit. Their direct fill service is available in their new shop or by delivery within their service area. Some people like to stop in for something here and there and others want to be on a weekly schedule to ensure that they have the products that they need whenever they need them. You can find out more about the shop, look at what they carry, or place your first order here. You can also mask up and stop in during their in-person service hours. Make sure to bring some containers and a reusable bag to bottle up and bring home whatever you need!

Walking Lightly is currently open Thursday & Friday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Delivery and shop by appointment on Wednesdays; Closed Monday & Tuesday.
