Here’s everything you need to know about this awesome brand!
The Story of MyGreenFills
In 2012, Ruth Smith and Stephen Ezell joined forces with one goal in mind: to change the world by shipping non-toxic soap right to your door. Although MyGreenFills came to be in 2012, Ruth’s journey with clean, green soap actually began long before then.
30 years before she met Stephen, Ruth was scouring supermarkets and drug stores in search of hypo-allergenic soap for her kids. They suffered from severe skin allergies, so it was only natural for her to find a solution.
Eventually — after having fruitlessly tried several products — Ruth realized that she’d likely never find a solution in the store. As a result, in 1982, she decided to take matters into her own hands.
Ruth began handcrafting her own non-toxic, hypo-allergenic soap... and it worked! Even better, Ruth discovered a passion that would carry her forward to become a pioneer in a laundry revolution.
MyGreenFills on a Modern Mission
Today, the brand is staying true to its mission of bringing people safe, effective soap. MyGreenFills does this by focusing on three key areas of the process.
- Sustainability motivates the use of recyclable packaging and refillable detergent jugs.
- Transparency inspires the use of natural ingredients that people can pronounce.
- Accessibility drives reasonable prices which make safe hygiene affordable for everyone.
MyGreenFills is turning the laundry industry upside-down. By staying committed to sustainability, transparency, and accessibility, this brand is making safe, sustainable detergent available to anyone who needs it.
A New Way to Buy Laundry Detergent
MyGreenFills has revolutionized the way people buy laundry detergent. Gone are the days of lugging heavy jugs from the store whenever you need to restock. Now, it’s as easy as emptying a powdered detergent packet into your jug.
When you receive your first MyGreenFills order, you’ll get two things: an empty forever jug and a packet of powdered detergent. All you have to do is fill the jug with warm water, pour the detergent in, and shake!
Pro Tip: Don’t forget to put the lid on before you shake it!
When you’re running low on detergent, you can simply order another packet. The only thing easier than filling your jug for the first time is refilling it when it’s empty!
Not only is this an incredibly convenient way to buy detergent, but it also reduces the carbon footprint of the laundry industry. Since refills come in the form of wholly recyclable, mix-at-home packets, the amount of plastic waste from jugs is significantly reduced.
As a bonus, the small packets make it really easy to buy and store detergent in bulk if you’re trying to stock up!
Safe & Sustainable Detergent for All
MyGreenFills provides safe, sustainable, and affordable detergent for everyone, and that hasn’t changed in the face of a pandemic. In response to COVID-19, MyGreenFills is fighting for safe and hypo-allergenic hygiene. Because of this, they’ve committed to giving away 1,000 hand soaps completely free.
This great brand is changing the way we do laundry. By making their detergent transparent, sustainable, and accessible, they’re ensuring the safety of the planet and everyone who lives on it.
