Founded in 2019, Re:Plenish is a refillery and zero waste store in Edmonton, Alberta. We offer refills on all kinds of consumables as well as zero waste alternatives to common household items. We are passionate about offering zero and low waste alternatives and strive to offer friendly, educational service!
What is a refillery and how does it work?
A refillery is a place where you can fill up your existing containers with liquid or powdered products. This allows you to reduce your consumption of single-use plastics and extend the life of your existing containers. All of our products are priced by weight – generally in 100g quantities. When you come in, we’ll weigh your containers and fill them with your desired product, then weight them again and subtract the original weight. This makes sure that you are only paying for the product inside!
What kind of containers can I bring?
You can bring whatever you like from home to fill up, we just ask that you make sure your containers are clean and dry! Some common containers people might bring in are jars, tupperware, empty shampoo bottles, or empty spray nozzle containers. Consider the products you want to buy and think about what container would work best for it. Will the product be easy to get in and out of the container? Is the container big enough to accommodate the amount you want to get? We also offer containers for purchase in store, as well as a selection of donated containers for free if you forget yours at home!

Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, sunscreen, carrier oils, facial cleanser, facial toner, face cream, bubble bath, beard oil, dry shampoo, deodorant, bath salts, body scrubs, hand sanitizer, hand soap, toothpaste, and mouthwash.

Where do your products come from?
We do our very best to source products from as close to home as possible. Many of our products are made right here in Edmonton, and for those products that we can’t find in the city we source from across Canada.
Are your products environmentally friendly?
Yes! We do our very best to do the research FOR you so you can feel confident in purchasing from our store. The vast majority of our products are organic, vegan, biodegradable, and free of artificial scents and colours. We do always recommend checking out the ingredient list for anything you’re purchasing (these can be found on our online store) to make sure that it aligns with your needs and values.
