Small changes can make a global impact, and it all starts with YOU. What would happen if Los Angeles-based sustainability expert Leslie Campbell of Sustain LA took a look inside your fridge and trash bin?

Stay safe, stay healthy and stay at home with our DELIVERY service. Order online anytime, and we will deliver on your next delivery day.

Thank you for all the support and requests for deliveries outside our current routes! We are taking this week to rework our delivery routes and open up more zip codes. We will make an announcement as soon as we can.

For the safety of our team, we can deliver to outdoor locations (front porch, etc.) or a building's front desk only. If your home requires use of an elevator or if your front desk is not accepting deliveries, you will need to meet us outside, at a safe distance, at time of delivery.

All orders are prepped in low cost glass containers, and most are returnable for deposit.

We are also still open for Contact-Free PICK UP via our parking lot behind the shop. Just order online, and choose your pick up day and time!

Thank you, Los Angeles, for your support. We love you.

Have you seen our new online store?! We are open for no contact PICK UP + DELIVERY, and our online shop now has our entire inventory available.

HOW IT WORKS- PICK UP
Place an order online and choose your pick up time. We will prepare your order in low cost, glass containers. Most containers are returnable for deposit.

All containers include lids. Pumps, sprayers and droppers are purchased separately and are yours to keep.

Pick up in our parking lot behind the store. Please bring a bag or box to collect your order.

Please view the HOW TO ORDER REFILLS and CONTAINER RETURN items (images 7 + 8 of this post) in the online shop for even more details!

HOW IT WORKS- DELIVERY
Please read our online delivery form for all the details. As with pick up orders, deliveries are prepped in reusable containers with lids which are returnable for deposit.

We are also here to answer any questions you might have. Just give us a call!

Thank you to everyone who has been ordering and working with us as we ironed out the kinks. It's quite an undertaking to completely change operations, build an online store, make a format designed to sell single items offer refills with containers, AND photograph everything.

Thank you to Brittany with @bkmphotography.la for the beautiful images and super quick turnaround. Thanks to my team, especially Cassy, for contributions to content. This is the crux of our small business for the foreseeable future, and it would not exist without all of you.

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MARKETS! @thehfm, @centralavefm, @atwatervillagefm and @echoparkfm are operational! @seelaorg's safety plans were approved and their markets remain open.

In order to provide necessary spacing for essential farmers' stands, we will be taking a hiatus from @thehfm and @atwatervillagefm for the duration of Stay at Home.

We are open for no-contact Pick Up + Delivery.

Personally, we will continue to support these markets by sourcing our food from our favorite farmers' while following the strict protocols in place. We encourage you to do the same.💜

Really looking forward to the day you all can come back inside this space. We miss you.

We are taking orders for pick up and delivery and appreciate your support. We have a steady stream of supplies, including TP, being delivered weekly. Our makers and suppliers are impressive, and we appreciate their hard work during this time.

In order to keep our team and community as safe as possible, we are filling pick up orders in low cost, reusable containers. Most containers are returnable for deposit.

We have paused on plans to allow BYO containers. We can best ensure there is enough time and space for sanitizing containers between uses with our current system and hope you understand.

Our team has worked so smart and hard this last week to completely modify our operations. Because of their flexibility and willingness, we've been able to implement new systems, crank out orders and keep everyone working. It'll be a while before we're all actually physically together again, but we're all working together to make this happen.

So, with all my heart, thank you:

#SLArefillstation | SUNDAY 3/22 | @thehfm | 8am-1pm | PICK UP ONLY

In order to continue to bring essentials to the Hollywood community, we will offer pick up only. Please give us a call to place your order before noon on Saturday.

Bring a bag or box to collect your order, and look for our Sustain LA van. We'll be distributing orders from there and respecting the 6 ft social distancing recommendation.

Additionally, please follow @seelaorg which operates the Hollywood Farmers' Market as well as Atwater Village, Central Ave, Crenshaw, MLK Campus and Echo Park Farmers' Markets. @centralavefm, @crenshawfm and @mlkcampusfm were forced to close despite providing essential resources. Support their efforts to get the markets back up and running. SEE-LA is working on alternative food distribution models to support the farmers displaced by these closures and continue to provide food to the South LA community where these markets are located.

☆IMPORTANT UPDATE: PICK UP + DELIVERY☆

Beginning tomorrow 3/18, we will be adjusting our operations of offer pick up and delivery exclusively. We feel this is the best way to remain a safe resource for the community.

DELIVERY
Our delivery service continues as usual. We are expanding our service area and reducing delivery rates as possible. The Delivery Form on the Refill Station page of our website has all the info.

PICK UP - WEDNESDAY 3/18
We will be taking phone orders during regular business hours of 11am-6pm.

PICK UP - THURSDAY + BEYOND
Our online order form will make it easy to order, pay and choose your pick up time. We will utilize the parking lot behind our store and bring your order out when you arrive.

CAN I BRING MY OWN BOTTLES?
Our pick up service will operate similarly to our delivery service. Orders are prepared in glass bottles and jars which are returnable for deposit. We feel this is the best way to maintain protocols at this time.

We are working on the possibility of an appointment based pick up system where our staff retrieves your containers and fills your order while you wait. Please let us know if this option is important for you.

FARMERS' MARKETS
Thankfully, markets have been recognized as essential, and the @atwatervillagefm and @thehfm will continue to operate. We will follow our regular schedule and are modifiying our booth to be a pick up location for prefilled orders. Orders placed by noon on Sat will be available for pick up at the market on Sunday.

♡THANK YOU♡
We have received so many thoughtful phonecalls with your intent to support local, small businesses. It is our intent to keep all of our team on payroll, and your support is helping make that a reality. We hope these modified operations continue to meet your needs while also providing reassurance of health and safety.

#SLArefillstation | SUNDAY 3/15 | @atwatervillagefm | 10am-2pm

We will be following the precautionary vendor guidelines set forth by @seelaorg to help ensure the health and safety of our community.

A list of products we bring to each market pop-up can be found on the Refill Station page of our website. Scroll down to the calendar and click on the date.

Like many of you, we rely on the farmers' and these markets for our food. We will take this opportunity to do our weekly "shopping," and thank our fellow vendors and @seelaorg for making heathful, local foods available for as long as possible.

Our shop will also be open 10am-5pm.

Thank you for your inquiries during these unsettling times. We hope the info below will help in making informed decisions.

HOURS
We are operating normal business hours as long as it remains responsible to do so. Our delivery service is an option for those in our current delivery area.

Should it be advisable we close, we will have an online order and pick up option. We will also expand our delivery area to better meet the needs of the Greater L.A. area.

INVENTORY
Our products are in stock. Toilet paper supply fluctuates as deliveries arrive and purchases are made. We are fortunate to work with ethical and sustainable companies that are not engaging in opportunistic price increases.

OPERATIONS
We have implemented enhanced precautionary measures. Our philosophy has always been to operate as if we were a food and beverage facility. Using a restaurant grade sanitizer, we are regularly sanitizing pumps and surfaces in our shop. The towels we use and offer to customers are from a professional linen company capable of washing and sanitizing large quantities. Our scoops and spatulas are washed and sanitized daily in our dishmachine. Our team is washing hands frequently and following recommended guidelines.

FARMERS' MARKETS
We will continue to pop up at @thehfm and @atwatervillagefm. @seelaorg has proactively implemented enhanced precautionary measures, and we will meet all their vendor requirements including having a portable hand washing station for our team.

SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESSES
As social media is flooded with images of empty shelves at big box stores, we encourage you to remember local businesses. @heirloomla is offering meal delivery services and @cookbookmarket is a great market for local produce, premade foods, dry goods, meats and cheeses. Our neighbors, @latropicanamarket have kombucha on tap, beer, wine, produce, canned foods, TP and more. Farmers' markets are also a great resource for local foods and a way to support small businesses.

Sending so many virtual hugs to our local community and beyond. 💜

International Women's Day was Sunday, but shouldn't it be every day?!

We're taking this opportunity to once again celebrate some of the amazing women that helped make our store a beautiful, functional reality.

@abbypendergrast, Designer and Creative Director, put together a stellar team, was incredible to work with and, well, we absolutely love her style.

@goode.brand Jenny helped us with a much needed rebrand which stayed true to our beginnings and love of nature in a modern and beautiful way.

@erinelyselong is the talented artist who created and painted our mural and installed all the lettering and graphics inside and outside our shop.

@bkmphotography.la Brittany is the gem behind the camera and the artist responsible for all these gorgeous photos.

We have much love, gratitude and respect for all of these women. Happy International Women's Everyday!

02/22/2020

Knowing what to expect can make a new experience less daunting and more fun! Every refill station operates a little differently, and these helpful infographics explain our process.

1. Bring any clean container (plastic is OK! Using what you have = 💯) or choose to purchase one of ours for reuse.

2. Weigh your empty container. We recommend weighing with the lid ON. Write weight on the container itself or snap a photo. If you've chosen one of our containers, you don't have to pre-weigh.

3. Fill and refill your containers. If your container has a pump, leave room for it to go back in the bottle! Because our refill products are sold by weight, you can try just a little bit, fill your container or something inbetween.

4. Check out. We will re-weigh and deduct the initial tare weight, so you pay only for what's inside.

Our staff is also ready to answer any questions you have and offer helpful tips for easy refilling. We're also happy to help "do the math" prior to refilling so you have an idea of cost to refill. We're here to support your zero waste journey!
