Refill, reuse and rejoice! Zero waste bath and body with Plaine Products

Just today I read that plastic has been found at the deepest depths of the ocean.  It is way past time for everyone to be completely serious about recycling.  I think the wave of the NOW – not the future – is found at Plaine Products, a fabulous bath and body line that is dedicated to the elimination of single use plastics.  They carry wonderful products for hair and body made with non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free ingredients.  Refill, reuse, and rejoice!

So I have to admit, I have a recycling bin right in my kitchen, but I don’t in my bathroom.  I think most people are the same – the kitchen is a natural, but other areas of the house get neglected when it comes to being environmentally responsible.  Plaine Products is all about zero waste living, and they make it easy with fabulous products and an ingenious system for getting them.

Plaine Products Body Lotion

Plaine Products Body Lotion

The Body Lotion (travel size $7, 16 oz. $30) comes in two scents, and I tested the Rosemary Mint Vanilla.  The fragrance is delightful – a lovely combination of fresh and herbal with sweet vanilla.  The body lotion is thick and rich, and very soothing to skin.  The lotion is aloe based, along with rose hips oil so it’s very hydrating.  It isn’t greasy or sticky, and it is just a great lotion.  Nice!

Plaine Products Shampoo and Conditioner

I tested the Shampoo and Conditioner (travel size $5, 16 oz $30) in the Citrus Lavender scent.  Mmm, what a great fragrance combo – fresh and clean and delightful!  My hair smells fabulous, and it looks terrific.  The shampoo lathers up beautifully, and the conditioner softens hair and gives is a great sheen.  Everyone in my family loves them both.  I have the travel sizes which are perfect for trips, and the price is right.  You can order this size once, then keep the bottles and just fill them up from your larger size bottle whenever you take a trip.

Plaine Products Shampoo and Conditioner

In terms of ordering, here’s the process – you order your products, which come in the refillable bottles with separate pumps.  Once you run low on product, you can either order a refill or else get a subscription – if you subscribe, you get 10% off the regular price.  When the new bottles arrive, you just rinse out your first bottle when it’s empty and put it in the refill box.  There’s already a return label enclosed, so shipping is on Plaine Products.  USPS picks it up – no need to take it anywhere special.  And it’s that easy!  Plaine Products will then clean and sterilize the bottles for reuse.  In one year, they have already diverted over 50,000 plastic bottles from landfills.  Now that really puts the exclamation mark behind refill, reuse and rejoice!

You can find Plaine Products online at www.plaineproducts.com and at amazon.com.  – Lisa

Comments

  1. This is such a great idea. I wish more companies would offer refillable options. Too many bottles and jars end up in the landfill– which is so preventable.

  2. Though I am a big recycler, I am intrigued by this. It’s interesting that they have you send back the empties and they send a return label. But you have to make sure you saved some product in another bottle to use while waiting for the refill to arrive.

  3. I’ve tried those and I really love them – especially the body wash!

  4. gloria patterson says

    I need to check in to this. I like to keep extra on hand in my storage cabinet of things like shampoo, conditioner, bodywash etc. So this would work perfect for me.

  5. Mary Songer says

    I love this idea. Refillable products that you can feel good about. They sanitize the bottles. I wish more companies would look into this.

  6. I’m all about using less plastic. I also refill my shampoo from a larger bottle.

  7. This is a great idea. I’m guilty of forgetting about bathroom products too.

  8. I love this company and concept

  9. I LOVE this idea!!!! It’s so smart and really cuts down on waste.

  10. Jen Walker says

    I like that they already have return shipping taken care of. It shouldn’t matter, but the extra step of making shipping arrangements would prevent some returns.

  11. This is such a great idea! To think of all the plastic that is wasted from all my body and hair care products…it may be time to become a little more environmentally conscious!

  12. My Nail Polish Obession says

    The scents sound amazing!

  13. I really love this concept. I’m not very good at reducing my waste here at home, but I’m doing better at work especially with paper recycling. I also went completely digital with our marketing which is nice!

  14. 25 Sweetpeas says

    Nice that it has the pump! And love the concept!
