We all strive to live a more sustainable lifestyle – but we don’t always know where to start. Aline Bloch founder of Out Of The Box Eco Store created a ‘refill store on wheels’, delivering home essential products right to your front door. Serving the Eastside, and Snoqualmie Valley Aline’s mission is to make it convenient to ‘help people reduce single use plastic Eco living’ – a Refill Revolution.
Out of the box takes all the stress out of how to start your eco friendly lifestyle by setting up an in home house call to go over what your refill revolution journey looks like – and how she can help you to reach that goal. With her trusty van ‘Phil’ she will come to your home and go over step by step what type of refill service you’d like to achieve, and make a plan to get you on your way to a better sustainable lifestyle. The best part is refillable products are sold by the ounce, so you can shop the quantity you need (From 2oz to 32oz).
Aline has always been passionate about reusing, and recycling for over 10 years, and is known to many as an ‘Eco artist’ – even making her own furniture out of shipping boxes! Everyone’s journey is different when you are interested in making the switch to living a more sustainable lifestyle and Aline recommends you start with a small goal, and small changes and not compare yourself to anyone else’s lifestyle.
Working with vendors from the Pacific Northwest she does all the research for you, sourcing the best natural, vegan, and eco friendly products from everything from dish soap, laundry detergent, to personal products like shampoo and conditioner. You save your jars, shop online, and Aline shows up for a no contact refill service – doesn’t get much easier than that!
Another fun way to get your friends or coworkers on board with the eco friendly lifestyle is hosting a Refill Pop Up Party. Invite at least 5 friends willing to shop, and the refill van will arrive at your location give a quick presentation and give your friends the opportunity to ask any questions, and shop directly from the van. Aline also provides tips on what jars you can use, how to clean your jars, products, starter kits and more!
