If you are new to our company, read about our journey below...
Our Footprints Company launched in March 2020, based in Kamloops, BC. Due to the evolving Coronavirus Pandemic in early 2020, we were only able to reach our customers through our online ecommerce platform, offering contactless pickup and delivery. Since then we acquired our first storefront in Kelowna, BC, to be their first Refillery & Eco Store. We are rapidly getting our first Kamloops ready for opening in Summer 2020.
Our stores offer eco-friendly, un-packaged, sustainable and zero waste products. We are constantly growing our inventory and we would love to hear from our community about the products that you want to see.
If you don't live in Kelowna or Kamloops, don't worry. We have optimized our refillery for online sales. Additionally, with nationwide shipping available, we can send your products to you anywhere in Canada.
Our main service offering is the refillery because we feel that this form of retail will eventually replace mainstream consumer practices that are on offer today. The Refillery is a way to sell zero waste products in bulk, without all the disposable packaging that we are used to. We currently deliver products like shampoo, conditioner, lotion, hand sanitizer and cleaners that are 'refilled' into clean, re-purposed containers such as jars and bottles. Each container we re-purpose is saved from the landfill and every time we re-use it, we save additional containers from the landfill that would otherwise have been required.Beyond the refillery, we have sourced household and personal products that save us from the typical world of disposable consumerism (aka packaged for your convenience). Our products are environmentally sustainable and are designed to suit your conscious living lifestyle. No matter where you are at on your "zero-waste" journey, we have products and ideas that will help you to reduce your environmental footprint!
The Footprints Journey
We are a young family living in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. We began our conscious living journey many years ago, before our children blessed our lives. It started with a mission to remove as many chemicals from our lives as possible because of our realisation that we experienced significant allergic reactions from the variety of products in our homes that we thought were safe or 'good for us'. We started to learn that manufacturers didn't always tell you about all of the ingredients that we were being exposed to. It was a journey of self education and self discovery. First we changed our laundry detergent, then our skin lotion, our floor cleaner, our countertop cleaner, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant and the list kept growing. We started to find more and more products that were organic, natural and didn't cause uncomfortable allergic reactions.
Along the way, we started to discover a growing culture of eco friendly alternatives for everyday products. Soon we realized that we could not only improve our health but we could simultaneously reduce our enviromental foorptint too! Now we struggle to fill even half of our curbside garbage bin each week and our recycling bin is close to full as we learn how to reduce waste, recycle more and reuse as much as possible.
We believe that this planet is God's gift and it is our responsibility to protect and preserve it for the next generation and all future generations. Our goal is to excite positive change for the next generation by exploring and promoting eco friendly, unpackaged and sustainable products. Starting this business is about offering consumers a choice that will allow them to purchase daily household supplies and personal products that don't leave a mark on this planet. We are striving to combat the single-use plastic epidemic by offering simple, yet cost effective, alternatives.We hope that our journey will leave footprints that future generations can follow.
We have been very blessed with an opportunity to share this amazing journey with you. The products, the lifestyle and the passion that comes with being a part of something bigger than all of us, is what keeps us continually growing and learning. Everything that we offer in the store, is something that we have discovered or been introduced to and is something that we believe will help others to make a difference in this world. We believe that with small changes, we can all have a big impact. Progress over perfection!
