Ripple Refill is the Big Island’s first zero-waste refill store. They sell items both in bulk and more convenient sizes. Here you can find products that will fit all your household needs, such as shampoo, dish soap, laundry detergent, deodorant, all-purpose cleaner, and much more.
The process starts by bringing in a container (jar or bottle), they will collect the initial weight (tare), and then you choose which products to fill your jar with! Some of Ripple Refill’s products are also locally sourced in Hawai’i.
Ripple Refill is located at 73-5568 Kauhola St STE 6, Kailua-Kona, HI 96740 and is open Tuesday-Friday from 10am-5pm, and Saturday from 10am-3pm.
