Hi all!

Soapstand is super excited to share our crowdfunding campaign with you, which just launched last week!

Soapstand is a Canadian startup, based in Vancouver, which develops automated vending machines where you can refill personal care and cleaning products into reusable bottles. Our goal is to be a leader in the reduction of single-use plastics from two industries that have been large perpetrators of plastic waste and we're looking to raise funds in order to continue funding our next prototype.

Check out the link to see the available #zerowaste rewards! Any contribution will be greatly appreciated, even sharing the link along!

Thanks & much love,

Soapstand

That is a great idea.

We have something like it in our town, but you have to go into a shop and the parking is terrible.  Also the soaps were not gentle on my skin and had too much perfume.

 A vending machine idea would be much easier to use.  I like the look of your machine and can see something like this in my local grocery store.

Can one use their own containers if they want to avoid plastic?
