The Refill Co

About Us

The Refill Co. was born after years spent dreaming, researching, wondering and finally, acting. For a long time we were stuck on the idea of “somebody should make a refill store in Thunder Bay, somebody should make this happen, somebody should…” until finally deciding WE could be that somebody and we were going to build a refill store in Thunder Bay that the community could benefit from. We have started small and are committed to continuing to grow and help our beautiful community live more sustainably. Our dreams are big and we are looking forward to accomplishing them in beautiful Northwestern Ontario.

We are passionate about helping our community find new ways to help our environment by introducing them to wonderful, affordable sustainable products that don’t feel like a compromise. The goal is to help everyone realize that living more sustainably and reducing single use plastic doesn’t have to break the bank or be a lot of work! A lot of research goes into the products we select to ensure that we believe in their impact and effectiveness. There are so many companies out there working to create amazing, eco-friendly products and we strive to stock as many as we can on our shelves!

We work hard to find natural products that are cruelty free, free of harmful chemicals and are, as often as possible, Canadian made. We are amazed by the talent in our area and are proud to feature many local businesses and makers in our shop.

“We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly.
We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.”

We Are

Jen & Sarah

We are Jen and Sarah, sisters who have grown up in the Murillo area for the past 25+ years. We are passionate about nature, our environment and doing all we can to preserve the beauty that it contains. As adults, we have spent years trying countless products and practices designed to help reduce our personal environmental footprints. Once we became mothers, we became even more determined to live sustainably and to use only natural and beneficial products in our homes. We are so thrilled to share our favorite products and the wonderful world of refilling with all of you!

We are incredibly excited to be on this new adventure with The Refill Co. and want to say again and again THANK YOU to every single one of you for your love and support! We are so proud to be a part of this wonderful community and hope to be a positive contribution to it for years to come!

We are earth loving people just trying to do our part... … and make it easier for you to take steps towards reducing your single use waste.
