Refilling Bottles at Body Time

Refilling Bottles at Body Time

We recycle so many plastic containers. Hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, dish soap, etc. And, while recycling is great, we often wish we could just reuse instead.

We were thrilled when we realized that a store just two blocks away will allow us to do that.

Body Time (which has a few locations throughout the Bay Area) specializes in sustainable, organic, botanical personal care products and they'll refill bottles for you!

We just bought 8 oz. of Citrus Conditioning Rinse ($12.50), and when we're done with it, we'll take the bottle back in to the store and have it refilled for $12 (a 50 cent discount).

It's true, they will only refill their own bottles; but, the product smells so nice, we didn't really mind switching brands.

We know from firsthand experience that it can be hard to find a store that carries bulk bath items and that will refill bottles. If you have one in your neighborhood, please share its name and location for the benefit of curious readers!
