Good Earth Essentials
I stop in every other month to refill my body wash here (and eventually will begin to purchase refills for shampoo and conditioner, once my current stock is depleted), and it's such a quick and easy errand. I love that you can either take the light rail or park for free in the garage above. It seems like they are always bringing in new interesting stock, which makes each visit unique. I do hope that they are able to find more economical refill options one day, as it can get pretty expensive (this jar costs about $16 to fill, which is significantly more than I might spend for a new bottle at the drugstore) and I think the biggest way to create an environmental impact is by making a low-waste lifestyle accessible to all.
Love this little shop! The concept is amazing & I wish there were more stores following a refill and low-waste model. We live in the West Lake Norman area but anytime we head into uptown I try to stop in - especially if I have something we need refilling on at the time. The location in 7th St Market is great too! The kids love to go with me & watch the trains come in & take off + there are several places to grab a bite to eat. You can get so much more out of your trip to her shop with this prime location.
the world needs more shops like this!! Good earth essentials provides bulk refills of many of the products you use every day, but plastic-free! this shop helps you feel GOOD about your environmental actions. plus, its latinx and female owned, so thats pretty badass dont forget to BYO containers!
I love that this shop provides affordable zero waste swaps with consistent store hours. The owner is super friendly and is always willing to answer my questions about the products
