The inspiration for The Soap Dispensary was born from a desire to reduce our plastic footprint. Our cozy shop on Main Street in the Riley Park neighbourhood gives Vancouver residents the opportunity to get household and personal care products without adding plastic containers to our landfills and waterways.
In keeping with the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) we emphasize reducing and reusing first and recycling as a last resort. Bring in your own clean containers or pay a small deposit fee to use one of ours and reuse them over and over.
Our products are carefully selected to cause the least amount of impact on human and environmental health. Soaps or cleaners do not need harsh chemicals to get the job done. Nor do they need fillers, dyes or synthetic perfumes. Especially for those who have sensitivities or allergies, our products are gentle and come in a variety of dye-free and scent-free options. Many of our products are concentrated as well, which reduces the amount of soap you need to use and its associated costs. Green cleaning does not need to be expensive.
Lastly, our products are biodegradable, animal cruelty-free (some are even Vegan certified) and are proudly made by many producers in Metro Vancouver and across Canada.
We thank you for supporting our community refill store and send a special thanks to Mockford Projects for a tremendous job in designing and building our shop from floor to ceiling.
