Public Goods and Services was founded on the mission to reduce the amount of waste being created by the over-consumption of single-use consumer products.
The thoughtfully considered reusable and refillable options supplied at our shop were inspired by my own journey in becoming a more conscious consumer and through experiences shared with like-minded individuals that are also supporting this movement for change.
It’s my goal to complement your journey - whether you’re curious about how you can be a more conscious consumer, want to simply refill your cleaning, laundry, or personal care items, need help finding a single-use swap, or a zero waste enthusiast!
Stay curious. Ask questions. And, keep reducing, reusing, and refilling.
With over 450 eco-labels (or seals) out there, some aren’t regulated as much as they should be or fall short of their expectations. Using one-three directories, all available to the public, can give you some great information to understand what's behind that label.
