Here’s some good news for those who want to live a greener life.

Now present in various areas around the metro are refilling stations for filling up on popular shampoo and conditioner brands. They’re called “All Things Hair” stations, and have been set up by Unilever Philippines.

These refill stations will be available from March 23 to April 14 in three malls: TriNoma in Quezon City, Glorietta 3 in Makati City, and Alabang Town Center in Muntinlupa City.

The stations include pumps for Cream Silk, Sunsilk, Dove, and TRESemmé products. The final price per bottle will vary, since it will be based on weight.

Those who don’t have old shampoo bottles can buy a refillable bottle at any station for PHP10 (US$0.19). They also take old plastic bottles for upcycling.
