How do you reduce waste in your store?
Our goal here at the Pretty Clean Shop is to reduce waste as much as possible in all of our practices as a team. We reuse the packaging that we get from our suppliers for packing our own shipments to customers, storage, and upcycling-purposes (see our lovely cardboard holiday window display!). The tape we use for shipments is recyclable paper tape with water activated adhesive, but any plastic tape we receive on shipments is reused in-store. We receive our rubber bands by donation to be used in packaging. All of our refillables for home cleaning and body care come in 20L jugs that are returned to our suppliers to be refilled and reused. All of the props and furniture in our store has been repurposed from other uses (oftentimes, our furniture is found on the side of the road, and we love those curbside finds!). In addition, our staff uses reusables for our personal food and drinks.
What happens to the containers you receive products in?
We reuse the packaging from our shipments whenever possible for storage and order shipments, including any cardboard boxes, paper, tissue, and corn-based packing peanuts. For our bulk goods, we return all tubs that we receive in order to be refilled and returned to our store. Anything that cannot be reused or refilled is repurposed, donated, recycled or composted whenever possible.
I would like to try out some products first. Do you provide samples?
If you visit us in store, we have testers for most of our products for you to test on the spot. We also offer mini samples of certain products, such as our foundations, which you can purchase for a small cost to test out at home.
Do you include samples with orders?
We do not typically include product samples with orders unless purchased or part of a promotion. There is an element of cost, but mostly, an element of avoiding waste.
Are you doing refills? Why can’t I bring my own containers to refill?
In light of the pandemic, and in compliance with health and safety guidelines related to Covid, we have had to make some temporary alterations to our refilling procedures. You can still do refills, in a modified format. For the time being this means it is not possible for you to bring your own containers to refill in the store.
In place of our old system we now offer bottle swaps. Bring in your empty container (mason jars, bottles, etc.) that you bought from us and we will give you a new one full of the product you desire for the cost of the product excluding the container. Why? Our store is very small, and this is the best way we can ensure proper cleaning, sanitization and drying of containers before refilling them, we minimize touch points with the customer, and the process is faster, which means less time in the store waiting for refills. It allows for a better customer experience and flow.
I’m new to refilling, where do I start?
The easiest products to start with are laundry, dish and hand soap, shampoo, shower gel, conditioner. As soon as you’re ready, you can move on to butters, creams, face products. The sky is the limit!
What products do you sell refills for?
We sell refills for a wide variety of home, body, hair, skin, makeup, and DIY products. Check it out here.
Do your products expire?
Our suppliers make it a priority to ensure freshness and long lasting shelf life. But bear in mind when you are purchasing natural products, its contents are perishable. If it smells funny or the colour does not look right, please do not use the product. We will replace anything that looks as though it has turned and was bought within the last 14 days.
