Let us introduce you to Refill, a practice that can help you cut single use packaging out of your life by buying food and home care products in reusable containers. Shopping refill can dramatically reduce the amount of plastic you consume and it’s easier than you’d think. 

Join the Ecology Center, Berkeley Bowl, and The Re-Up Refill Shop for the Road to Refill: A Walking Tour! We’ll walk you through the step by step of shopping refill, showcase some of the great options for refill in the East Bay, and share strategies for avoiding single use packaging. 

Space is limited, register now to reserve your spot!

*Please note that this event does include walking approximately 1.2 miles total, from Ecology Center to Berkeley Bowl West and back.
