Every time I buy body lotion, the old plastic bottle gets thrown away in my blue recycling bin. But is it actually recycled? No one can say with certainty, so the latest project from Resilient Palisades piqued my interest: a Refillery Truck.
Bring your own container or purchase one at the truck and it will be filled with a product. Refills are sold by the ounce.
The truck will come to the same location as the weekly Thursday farmers market – about a half mile up Temescal Canyon Road from PCH and about 0.3 mile south of Bowdoin Street on the east side of the road, from 2 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, January 28.
Baby shampoo, personal care, home cleaning supplies and even pet shampoo will be available at the truck. Visit: www.refilleryla.com to see a listing of the products and the ingredients.
For example, there are two body lotions: French Lavender and unscented. The French lavender ingredients include: Purified Water, Glycerin, Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Esters, Glyceryl Stearate, Essential Oil Blend [Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Lavandula Hybrida Oil], Organic Herbal Blend [Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf, Organic Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Organic Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, and Organic Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract], Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, Organic Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Betaglucan, Lecithin, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Phytate, Dimethicone, Glyceryl Caprylate, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate and Sodium Levulinate.
