Pollocks Home Hardware is changing the way to shop for everyday home and beauty essentials. We're committed to the 4 R's of "going green" namely to reduce, reuse, recycle and refill. Our green vision is an environmentally friendly one that aims to minimize the amount of personal waste thrown into the environment from homes.
One of the easiest ways to reduce waste and conserve resources is to use refillable bottles or containers. The concept of reusing containers is nothing new – in fact, your great grandmothers refilled everything from soap to flour sacks. It’s an old-fashioned idea whose time has come around again. Now it's your time to change the marketplace, to get involved and create a zero waste household!
We are delighted to be partnering with eco + amour, a Toronto maker of zero waste products. Eco + amour products are 100% natural, mildly scented and with absolutely no palm oil. We do all the pumping, refilling and weighing of your refill product instore so that your refill experience will be absolutely mess-free, properly weighed, sealed and sanitized.
Who would have guessed that there's a refill revolution happening at a hardware store? How did that happen?
Len attended the Green Living show in 2019 with a goal to find a green line of refillable and quality cleaning products for his store.
He had the good fortune to meet with the owners of eco + amour, an environmentally friendly refill line of home and beauty care products. What sealed the deal was knowing that eco + amour's products are 100% natural and virtually all made in Toronto.
While initially introduced as a small test kiosk, the retail space has since been expanded to include a dedicated refill and weigh station counter where staff do all the refilling, weighting and sanitizing for you.
Embracing the green refill revolution and getting plastics out of the home is an environmentally appropriate idea whose time has arrived!
