FILL gives Kelowna residents the means to make a difference from a consumer perspective. The company aims to better our communities and makes it easy and affordable to reduce plastic at a local level.

To date, FILL has saved over 68,000 plastic containers from entering our environment.

laundry soap and fabric softener, dish soap and dishwasher detergents, household cleaners such as all-purpose, window and bathroom, shampoo and conditioner, as well as a leave-in conditioner, body and face lotion, face cleanser, bath salts and bath bombs, and more.
