At Recontained, we are passionate about the environment; about the world we live in. We believe, as a society, we have an obligation to ourselves, to future generations, to the animals that we coexist with on this planet, to start making better choices. This is why we made it our mission to create an easy alternative to the single use plastic that is so dramatically & undeniably damaging our home. Everyone needs personal care & home cleaning products, so how can we make a change?
REFILL!!! REFILL!!! REFILL!!!
Recontained offers the ability to REFILL existing containers with a range of mindfully sourced, quality driven, made in the USA products. Our entire skincare line contains 80% & up organic ingredients. All products are healthy & safe, cruelty free (produced in Leaping Bunny Certified facilities), sulfate-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, gluten-free, & all but one, due to the use of beeswax, are fully vegan. All good stuff, right?
We are seeking funding firstly, to help support our first store location at 1629 Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice, CA. The costs of getting a store up and running (security deposit, fixtures, furniture/displays, insurance, utilities, etc.) are astronomical. Happy to report that we made it through that phase and have been getting nothing but love from the community. Now, we are asking for your help to keep us in place while we continue to build a strong local clientele and generate the sales we need to become Venice’s go-to, one-stop shop for all things zero waste.
Funds will also allow us to grow and improve our product offering so we can have a greater impact on the plastic problem facing our world today. We want to develop more products to add to our personal care refill line and we aspire to move into offering grocery type items. We currently carry delicious loose leaf teas but have our sights set on artisan salts, spices and even on-tap beverages, all to be offered in our zero-waste refillable format. Bye bye to even more single use plastic packaging.
And finally, we are in the early stages of prototyping a refillable container that will allow us to service non-locals via the ever-growing e-com business. Your donations will help us with development costs, beta testing, and launching this new refillable format so we can remove the geographical barriers we face now, only being able to offer local clientele the opportunity to make better choices for the planet.
We are two girls with big ideas and big plans. Thank you in advance for helping us make all this good stuff happen.
Our team is Tonia Soteros and Britt Kagan.

Britt is a creative professional, with over a decade of experience in design, branding, & consulting.
