It’s no secret that the Philippines is one of the top ocean polluters in the world, ranking third overall. This is partly due to the pvblic’s ‘sachet mentality’ and a distinct lack of effective recycling programs.
Unilever is looking to do its part in reducing plastic waste by opening the ‘All Things Hair Refillery‘ – a station where people can refill their empty shampoo and conditioner bottles at a discounted price.
The stations can be found at Alabang Town Center (Ground Floor), Trinoma (Level 2 Mezzanine) and Glorietta 3 (Ground Floor, Lower Level).
As per CNN, refilling prices are as follows. Do note that only thoroughly cleaned bottles will be accepted.
Dove Straight and Silky Shampoo – ₱0.53 per gram.
TreSemme Keratin Smooth – ₱0.58 per gram.
Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable – ₱0.46 per gram.
Dove Straight and Silky – ₱0.57 per gram
TreSemme Keratin Smooth – ₱0.61 per gram
Cream Silk Standout Straight – ₱0.52 per gram
The ‘All Things Hair Refillery’ will be open from March 23 until April 14.
