New Hampshire’s First Zero Waste Grocery Store

Juliette Buell started Live Free Refillery as a culmination of 15 years of experience working in agriculture. She is excited to share her passion for food and the environment with the New Hampshire community and help others take part in the zero waste lifestyle.

At Live Free Refillery, we care about the health of our planet. The size and scope of climate change and pollution can feel overwhelming. However, it is more evident today how consumers can drive change by being more thoughtful about our daily routines. We have control over what we eat and what products we use. We can drive change by supporting agriculture that doesn’t harm the environment but works with it, and we can reduce our use of disposable items and products with chemical additives.

Plastic is now one of the biggest environmental threats to our planet. It can take hundreds of years to biodegrade and there is no easy way to dispose of it. Only 9% of plastic is recycled, 12% is incinerated, and the other 79% is landfilled or littered into the environment. Over 300 million tons of plastic is created each year world-wide. Half of this is made to be used for a few brief moments as single-use disposable items such as beverage bottles, straws, packaging, service ware, food wrappers, and plastic bags. Let that sink in.

Live Free Refillery provides a selection of foods, body care products and cleaning supplies that have a gentler impact on our planet. This is through better packaging, better worker treatment, better animal treatment, better treatment of the environment, and better economic impact on our local community. The companies we do business with have practices and beliefs centered around sustainability like we do.


Our mission is to innovate new ways to improve our impact on the environment; so we can support and create jobs in agriculture; and so people can lead healthier lives in our community.

Our Process

Here's how our process works.

Bring your own clean and sanitized container to fill up on products, take a free paper bag or free jar, or purchase jars that we sell. This is how Live Free Refillery helps “close the loop.”

If you bring containers from home they must be free of debris, cleaned and sanitized in order to be used in our bulk section. This article gives some great tips on how to properly clean and sanitize: https://stopfoodborneillness.org/fft-clean-sanitize-disinfect/ 

Jars that you purchase in the store can be brought back to the store to refill again and again.
