Customers can bring clean empty bottles of shampoo and conditioner from March 23 to April 14 to replenish their supply of Unilever hair products

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 20) — From reusable straws to paper-based products, the country continues to reduce plastic waste as a mulltinational consumer goods company joins the campaign.

On March 23, Unilever will open a shampoo and conditioner refilling station called "All Things Hair Refillery" where customers can bring clean, empty bottles of these hair products for refilling at reduced prices.

These stations located in three malls — Alabang Town center in Muntinlupa City, Glorietta in Makati City and Trinoma in Quezon City — will be open only until April 14.

Hair products include Dove Straight and Silky Shampoo which will be refilled at ₱0.53 per gram, TreSemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo for ₱0.58/g and Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo for ₱0.46/g.

For conditioners, the Dove Straight and Silky Conditioner will (₱0.57/g), TreSemme Keratin Smooth Conditioner (₱0.61/g) and Cream Silk Standout Straight Conditioner (₱0.52/g) are available.

The station will also sell reusable bottles and recycle single-use plastic wastes such as sachets.

A 2018 study by the United Nations Environment Program showed that the Philippines is among the top five countries that produce the most plastic waste in the world. The world produces 300 million tons of plastic waste annually, 99 percent of which are non-renewable chemicals like high-density polyethylene mostly used in shampoo bottles.

Some brands such as Lush, Ecobar and Suds sell shampoo bars as an alternative to plastic-encased liquid shampoo.
