2018 Recipient: Ethical Waste Services
Fulfill Shoppe is an online refill shop for all your everyday essential goods. We make it convenient for you to shop local and reduce your plastic/packaging waste. From the comfort of your living room you can order your dry pantry goods, coffee, snacks, cleaning supplies and beauty care products in refillable and reusable containers delivered right to your doorstep. Our products are locally sourced, with premium ingredients and are plastic free. Over 90% of our products are women owned/led businesses and our suppliers work with us to remove plastic/packaging waste from our supply chains. We are on a journey to reduce our environmental footprint and aim to provide education, resources and services beyond our products that make it easy for everyone in our community to be a part of. Customers can leave out soft plastics which we will take to the RecycleBC pilot program, saving them from our landfill. We donate $1 from each delivery to local charities, provide tips for people to reduce waste and support their community. This year we saved over 20,000 pieces of plastic from our community landfill. We make change, we make a difference, we make hope for a better future.
