We are lucky to partner with some amazing vendors who offer refill services or will take back their products to recycle or repurpose if damaged or no longer usable. This reduces the amount of waste going to the landfill, creating an almost "closed-loop" system for the products. For items that we take back you can drop off to us at the Farmers Market or you can mail to:
