Wasteless Wednesday: Bulk isn’t just for food!

Hey everyone!

It has been a while since I’ve written for Cedar Coast. Some of you may have seen on my IG and Pinterest feeds, I’ve been transitioning to a focus on consulting rather than blogging. And beyond that I’ve been working for Photography By Marlow. Many side hustles for my side hustles haha.

Anyway, it is Wasteless Wednesday and I wanted to share with you guys some helpful information about some amazing local stores you may or may not know about which can help you drastically reduce your household waste and recycling. First off I want to say that I am not affiliated with these stores or have received compensation for writing this from any of these stores. I just want my readers to succeed at their journey to a greener life through waste reduction!

My focus today for wasteless Wednesday was refilling my detergents. So I thought I would share with you guys three amazing stores from the Eastern Fraser Valley to Vancouver who sell bulk soaps, detergents, shampoos and much more.

I personally go to the Chuckling Duckling Farm store in the ever so dreamy Fort Langley (#100- 9188 Glover Road, Langley BC.)

I personally buy the Live for Tomorrow brand dishwasher powder and Sapadilla brand counter top cleaner and dishwashing liquid in bulk, refilling my own old containers. Nope, you don’t have to pay for the weight of the container. They have shampoos and conditioners, shaving supplies for men and women, clinics and classes for special events and more.

Our next Fraser Valley store is All things Being Eco at 7388 Vedder Road in Chilliwack. They have a substantial bulk section of soaps, oils and detergents in addition to organic women’s and men’s clothing and eco-friendly gifts! If you’re out that way I suggest to add this to your shopping stop!

And last but not least I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the Soap Dispensary and Kitchen Essentials store in Vancouver at 3718 Main Street. This gem of a shop was like a harp song from heaven when I first walked in. Soaps, shampoos, hygiene products, food staples like flour and teas and so much more can be found at this unassuming shop in the Heart of Vancouver.

As always! BYOC – bring your own container. These stores happily tare the container so you are only paying for the product you purchase not the package, and some of them even give you a discount for doing so.

So there you have it! I finally got back to writing and you have some awesome stores to check out!

Happy eco-shopping

Heather
