The refillery, opened in 2017, is the first of its kind in Calgary, catering to the zero waste lifestyle and saving you money on the products you love! Buy in bulk, save some dollars and keep those containers out of the landfill.

Read through the instructions below to ensure that we have what you need and that you have the best possible refillery experience when you come in!

Shelf of bulk foods at The Apothecary, a zero waste refillery in Calgary


The container that will work best depends on the product you’re having it filled with. Can we easily get the product into the container — and will you be able to easily get it out? Will the container effectively hold the product? And of course, make sure all containers are clean and dry!


Jars, glass bottles, plastic containers (reused from food products or other), containers from similar products that you have used up, resealable plastic bags, tins of non-reactive metal, any non-reactive, leak-proof container with a sealable lid, clean cloth bags (dry goods only)


Not Acceptable: Anything dirty or wet; Containers that leak or can’t be sealed, such as cardboard or anything without a lid; Reactive materials

P.S. If you don’t have any containers to refill, don’t worry about it! We have lots of brand new empty, reusable (glass and PET plastic) containers here in the store for purchase, as well as a donation bin of all kinds of used containers!


Come to The Apothecary in Inglewood and let us know what you want, and how much. We will tare your container before filling so that you are charged for the proper weight of product.

It may take us some time to fill your containers. Please feel free to browse in the store or at one of the many amazing shops nearby here in Inglewood and we will call you to let you know when your order is ready.

Feel free to take advantage of our drop-off service: leave your containers with us and come back at a time that's convenient!


We generally stock the following, but stock levels can vary. Please phone (403) 453-0313 or email us ([email protected]) if you would like to check whether a particular product is in stock. * denotes Organic
