Saving the planet is important and we do generate a lot of unnecessary plastic waste. I love sitting at the beach and when I think about all the plastic that is floating out there in the Ocean it hurts. I also look at the perspective of “what can I do? I am just one person.” But a new store in Kittery, Maine called “We Fill Good” might make you feel a lot better about your choices when it comes to plastic waste.

Marla Baldassare is the owner of “We Fill Good” which offers products you can put in your own refillable bottle, so you aren’t just using that plastic bottle one time. How many laundry detergent bottles do you think you have thrown away in your lifetime? Seacoastonline.com quotes Baldassare as “It’s pretty hard to be zero waste and have a real life. But if everyone does a little, we can really help the planet.” She offers a wide selection of products like shampoo, body wash, laundry detergent, dish soap, bath salts, conditioner, and facial oil.

The selection of products for “We Fill Good” is made by utilizing the following values according to seacoastonline.com – certified organic, family business, B-corp, handmade, small business, upcycle, socially responsible, empower women, fair trade, cruelty-free, and made in the USA. The cost is not as high as you would think will laundry detergents from 17 to 32 cents per ounce, about what you would pay for a bottle of Tide. It sounds like a great idea.
