"When you make yourself into Zero, your power becomes invincible" Mahatma Gandhi
We didn't always waste. Products used to be made to a higher standard, to be reused over and over. We used to buy food by the ounce, not in pre-packaged plastic. Today, not only do we buy more than we need, but we throw it away.
This modern culture has had the unintended consequence of creating a mountain of rubbish in every country in the world. We are trying to figure out ways to recycle, but we aren't there yet. And even if we were, recycling alone is not the answer. Wouldn't it be better to reuse something than use up more energy and resources to create another version of a bottle for example?
In a circular system, packaging gets used over and over. And that's what happens with Zero Refill packaging.
There is no easy solution to packaging, everything has a trade off, whether it be a higher upfront carbon footprint for a longer life cycle and lower overall footprint, or a lower upfront footprint with shorter life, and non biodegradable or reusable end life.
So just because you don't have a refillery nearby, or it's closed during Lockdowns or after hours when you have time to shop, you can now "refill from home".
Shop online for your refill bottles of soaps and cleaners. Our packaging can be used over and over, some can even be sent back to us (freight paid by us).
Once you replace the bottles in your bathroom, kitchen and laundry with Kahuku Zero.Refill stainless steel bottles, you won't buy bottles again for life* or if you use our glass option, you will never put a plastic bottle into landfill, wish cycling or contribute to plastic pollution!
In addition to our bottles we design our packaging boxes to be able to withstand repeated use, and when they cannot handle any more, they are biodegradable. We use paper tape, paper labels.
And now you can also choose to purchase our soaps and cleaners in our "Rinse Repeat - Just one more use" with Re-Bottles. These bottles are typically ex milk bottles and soft drink bottles destined after being used once, for recycling.
So what if they were used once more, before being sent to their intended destination at the recycle plant?
You can opt to purchase a Re-Bottle and pay only for the soap inside - no packaging cost. And then you can send this bottle on it's path to recycle stardom. "Just One More Use - Rinse Repeat"
The bottles have gone through our extensive sterilisation process, and we only use certain bottles which are safe for one more use.
Refill, Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.
*We give the stainless steel bottles a 10 year life. Does not include the pump or trigger.
