A half-assed New Year’s resolution brought me to The Good Fill earlier this year. I wanted less plastic and junk in my life, but couldn’t afford a total lifestyle overhaul. The Good Fill made it easy and affordable to take a first step into the zero-waste world. The East Nashville shop offers a selection of refillable containers — made of glass, aluminum, silicone and more — that can be filled with everything from laundry detergent and all-purpose cleaner to shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The shop even carries items I never thought could be zero-waste, including lipstick, toothpaste and dog-poop bags! Can’t make it to the East Nashville shop? The Good Fill also offers shipping with plastic-free, recyclable and/or reusable materials.
