HOW ELSE IS IT SUSTAINABLE?
All bottles are recyclable in the city of Portland. The caps are BPA free plastic that can be reused. OR, return them to the market and they will be sent to Plastic Lizard to be melted and turned into functional art. All milk ingredients come in reusable or recyclable packaging. No mammals were held captive in the making of this milk. The hazelnuts are picked up farm direct in a Prius ;-) This is the way of the past and the future.
This is zero waste.
Hi! I'm Jessica Stackpoole, and so far, I'm the one woman show conducting Rose City Refillery.
Originally from Naples, FL, I've spent the last decade sailing and singing on Maui, where I lived in close connection with the ocean. Over the years, I've watched plastic pollution increase, and marine life decrease. Witnessing tides bring in thousands of pounds of plastic from around the world triggered a curiosity about creating less waste, and a passion for exploring sustainable solutions.
Since arriving in Portland last summer, in pursuit of seasons and greener living, my personal journey towards zero waste has evolved into a quest to make the lifestyle more accessible to our community.
By creating this business, I hope to build a passionate team who shares a common goal, and to continue growing our eco-conscious community so we can preserve the life on our beautiful planet.
Our current linear
system of make, take, waste
has accumulated unmanageable
amounts of trash from materials that
are made to be used once and then
It is up to both businesses and consumers to develop a more cyclical way of living in our modern world, where byproducts are made to be put back into the loop of resources. Much like a fallen leaf becomes food for the soil, let's give back to nature.
Let's give back to ourselves.
