St. Petersburg’s near zero-waste, eco-friendly boutique continues to provide vital cleaning and hygienic products amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The Refillery operated at limited hours for several weeks as the owners navigated these tough times. But a commitment to supporting its local community allowed this business to persevere. Now, the eco-boutique is carrying vital products.

Among the household essentials are bottles of hand sanitizer made locally at Kozuba Distillery. The local spirit community has used its resourced to provide hand sanitizer for businesses, first responders.

HAND SANITIZER RESTOCKED! We are so happy to be getting locally made hand sanitizer from Kozuba & Sons Distillery. This meets all the proper regulations and has an 80% alcohol content. It is a water-like consistency so it is meant to be sprayed. We do not currently have small spray bottles in stock so we do recommend bringing your own. We have some 16oz sprayers available that can be used for spraying down the larger surfaces in your home such as door handles, counters, etc. #refillery #refillerystpete #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #ecofriendlyliving #stpete #stpetersburgflorida #stpetefl #ilovetheburg #keepstpetelocal #lovefl #liveamplified #igersstpete #NoSUPP #choosetorefuse #reducereuserefill #pureflorida #roamflorida #explorida #KSPL #shineonstpete #loveyourcity #loyaltolocal #localbusiness #womenowned #iheartstpete #sunshinecity #BeChillAndRefill

Now more than ever it’s imperative to support local businesses. Monica Leonard opened this shop nearly one year ago in the Sunshine City with a mission to provide safe, organic products to residents, while helping the city cut down on single-use plastics.

The Refillery is open for regular hours: Monday-Wednesday 10am-4pm; Thursday and Friday 11am-7pm; Saturday 10am-5pm. They are also offering curbside pickup and refills. Just call before you arrive at 727-202-7120 so someone from the shop will be available to assist you.

It’s swarming season in the Sunshine City, and we could all use more repellent. The Refillery has grown its bug repellent section to protect against ticks, ants, fleas, beetles, palmetto bugs and more.  These products are completely safe to use around your pet, too.

Beaches are reopening, and The Refillery has a variety of reef safe sunscreen from Stream 2 Sea.

The Refillery offers a variety of soaps for your hands and for dishes, detergents, reusable cloths, utensils and more. A new concept has arisen from these times that keeps customers safe and clean, while providing a family-friendly activity at home: Introducing Refillery DIY Kits.

The brand new DIY Kits come with the ingredients, container, and instructions. You can make your own lip balm, deodorant, bath bombs, sugar scrubs, body balm, and more.

Keeping your space clean has never been more of a priority. If you’re going to do it, consider shopping and supporting local. The products at The Refillery assist in cutting down waste.
