Colleen - Even UK consumers are asking for a new solution such as Refill Depot!
See article "Nine out of 10 people call for 'plastic-free isle' in supermarkets, Finds Survey"
"The survey – of 2,000 British adults by Populus – was commissioned by campaign group A Plastic Planet, which said it was clear that the public wanted an alternative to “goods laden with plastic packaging”.

Colleen - This is such an amazing idea to tackle our problem with plastic packaging waste. I spend a ton of time in the ocean and notice that it is not just the small plastics in the ocean but large plastic packaging as well - bleach bottles, dish soap bottles, shampoo & conditioner - all contributing to our plastic pollution waste worldwide. This idea really tackles our plastic problem not only on the consumer side, but with retailers and manufactures too! Good luck Colleen!!
