We all want to live a more sustainable lifestyle to reduce our impact on the environment. That's why it's important to think about how our daily habits affect the environment. A smart way to reduce that impact is to refill your products. Read more about how this can have a positive effect on the environment and why you are making a sustainable choice.
Less packaging waste
By refilling your favorite care products, you produce much less packaging waste. Instead of purchasing a new product over and over again, you can simply reuse your existing bottle and refill it with, for example, our refill pouches, or by refilling at our Refill Bar in the store. This way you reduce the amount of plastic, glass or other packaging material that ultimately ends up in the waste stream.
Refilling products contributes to energy savings during production. Producing new packaging costs raw materials, energy and water. By opting for refill, we save those resources and reduce energy needs. That means less CO2 emissions and a smaller impact on the environment.
Sustainable use of raw materials
By refilling your products you promote the sustainable use of raw materials. By reusing packaging, we need fewer new raw materials, such as plastic, glass or metal. This helps to reduce the pressure on natural resources and contributes to a circular economy in which materials are used for as long as possible. For example, our fragrance sticks are made of a glass bottle that you can enjoy for a long time, which you can easily refill with our fragrance sticks refill.
Refillable care products can also be cost-effective! While the initial purchase of a refill pack may be slightly higher, refill packs are often more economical than buying a new product over and over again. Did you know, for example, that every Wednesday you can refill your products with a 50% discount during our Happy Hour Refill? In the long term, you can therefore save money by opting for a refill.
With every purchase at Marie-Stella-Maris, you contribute directly to sustainable water projects around the world. Through the Marie-Stella-Maris Foundation, we collaborate with organizations that realize these water projects. One of these partners is Project Maji: a non-profit organization that provides sustainable, solar-powered water solutions to communities in Sub-Saharan Africa.
