This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. March is Women’s History Month, and we’re highlighting female leaders in Utah, including Kimberly Flores, founder of fulFILLed, a zero-waste store and refill shop located in Park City. Kimberly and her team are making “reduce, reuse, and refill” a reality. Here’s Kimberly with more.
Only nine percent of all the plastic that’s ever been manufactured has been recycled. All the other plastic waste has either been landfilled, burned, or made its way into our oceans. At fulFILLed, we’re on a mission to help Utah families scale back on what goes into our landfills.
We do that by enabling our customers to bring their own containers to our shop and refill them with non-toxic laundry detergent, shampoo and conditioner, lotion, liquid soap, all-purpose cleaners, and more. Our plant-based and earth-friendly cleaning and personal care products are sold by the ounce. This means you only pay for what you need.
We also offer sustainable items like un-paper towels, bamboo toothbrushes, dish brushes, safety razors and more.
You don’t have to go to Park City to visit fulFILLed—you can have fulFILLed come right to you! Order online, at fulFILLedutah.com, and we’ll deliver right to your door.
In 1960, there was very little plastic in America’s landfills, but today it constitutes nearly 20 percent of municipal solid waste. Fortunately, fulFILLed is helping everyone reduce the amount of material headed to our permanent disposal areas. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
