I just don’t like throwing things away. If I use up the contents of a container, I’d rather refill it than add it to the landfill. And when I find a product that will let me do that, I prefer to use that product.
I recently needed more dental floss and decided to go online to see whether I could find a good price on small quantities of the the POH brand (great stuff!). I ended up at the manufacturer’s website (http://www.buypoh.com/) and found, to my great delight, that Oral Health Products, the company that makes POH, sells refills.
Here’s what they say on the subject: “The beautiful little round container with its shiny cap has been around for a LONG while. Why not use it for refills? The cap is twist fit, not welded on. The label has been sticky, but not permanent. Refills. Duh. We are proud to offer refill spools of your favorite floss. Save your teeth, and save the Earth at the same time!”
I can’t help it. I get excited about stuff like this. (Remember what I said: some of my friends think I’m nuts. You can see why.)
