We’ve heard it all before, refilling is better than recycling in almost every way, better for you, better for your wallet, better for the world, yadda, yadda, yadda. In case you missed that, here’s a quick rundown to jog your memory on why refillable bottles kick plastic bottle butt.
- One Volt bottle and Eco-refill pack saves up to 11 plastic bottles of waste from landfills.
- Volt bottles and refill packs are made of aluminum, which is infinitely recyclable (unlike plastic).
- Eco-refill packs lower the cost per ounce of the product, saving you money over time.
Despite being true, we’re not here today to talk about why refilling is better than recycling. However, we are here to talk about the different ways to refill your Volt men’s grooming travel products. Yes, there’s more than one!
Here’s the tl:dr. Volt Eco-refill packs help save you money, however, we would recommend that you get the full-sized Volt bottles of product and refill your travel-sized bottles from those first before grabbing the eco-packs. This helps you increase the convenience of traveling with the TSA-approved travel products, and keep a main set of Volt products at home until you need the refill pack overall.
So, let’s get into the two different ways to refill your Volt travel (80ml) bottles and their respective pros and cons.
The Two Ways To Refill Volt Travel Products
Volt’s Travel products are made with three things in mind. 1) Convenience, 2) to be spill-proof, and 3) to be durable. number 3 is extremely important because the longer a bottle lasts, the less bottles you have to buy and the less waste there is in the world. That’s how we roll.
Refilling With Volt’s Eco-Refill Packs
The first (and most obvious) way to refill any Volt bottle you have is with the discounted Volt Eco-Refill packs. These refill packs are made of aluminum foil which is highly recyclable and hold 900ml of product.
Refilling with Volt’s Eco-Refill packs is easy:
- Unscrew the cap from the Refill pack and your empty Volt bottle.
- Pour the product into the bottle.
- Replace the caps.
It’s that simple.
The main benefit of refilling with the Volt Eco-Refill packs is 1) the cost, and 2) the environmental benefit. Eco-refill packs lower the cost per ounce of the product by a large margin, meaning you get far more product for your money and ultimately save more and more money as time goes on.
The second main benefits is the environmental impact of the refill-packs. Aluminum is recycled at a much higher rate than plastic. We’re talking a HUGE margin, 78% for aluminum, and less than 9% for plastic. One eco-refill pack saves you up to 11 plastic bottles worth of waste.
Refilling With Volt’s Standard Refillable Bottles
The second (and not so obvious) way to refill your travel bottles is with your larger bottles of Volt.
Here are the products and their respective standard (non-travel) bottles sizes:
Here’s why you’ll want to refill from your standard sized bottles. 1) They allow you to keep Volt product everywhere for convenience, and 2) it makes traveling easy.
It’s no secret that having more bottles, and in more places where you need them, makes things more convenient. Having a standard Volt bottle in your primary shower and a secondary travel bottle means you never have to go searching for your Volt products.
This also means you can keep your travel set of Volt bottles in your GoPack at the ready to head out on the road or to the airport without a second thought!
Ultimately, we’d recommend grabbing the full-sized volt bottle and travel-sized bottle first for convenience sake, and then grabbing the eco-refill pack when you end up needing more product or to refill your Volt refillable bottles.
