It’s not news that we use too much plastic and create too much waste. Still, most of us haven’t made drastic changes to our lifestyles. A quick eco-friendly fix? Switch to Common Good household products. The line of soaps, cleaners, and candles are contained in recyclable plastic and glass. But more importantly, they’re refillable. Refill stations in local retailers let shoppers bring in empty vessels and stock back up on favorite products, like laundry detergent, dish soap, hand soap, and all purpose cleaners. Options are endless. Formulas come in unscented or synthetic-free fragrances (like bergamot, lavender, and tea tree) and jars are available in plastic or simple and pretty glass. Ingredients are planet conscious, so no phthalates, dyes, optical brighteners, chlorine bleach, ammonia, or testing on animals. Plus, it’s freshly available in Dallas. Find the pre-bottled goods and fill-up stations at Apothecary in Roanoke’s multishop center, The Plaid Peacock.
