Pine Eco + Refillery Boutique was founded by a mother-daughter team who opened their first storefront on Pine St. May 21st 2020 in Collingwood, ON.
After embarking on a journey to live more sustainably, they pursued their dream of opening a store together that would make it easy for anyone to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle and get back to the basics. This means less packaging, less chemicals, less waste, and less stress; where everything can be refilled, reused or recycled back into nature at the end of its life. And that's exactly what they did.
During their time in Collingwood, they became more and more aware of the need for truly natural products. After learning about ingredients through their own research, working with various knowledgeable vendors and artisans, and trying to find the cleanest products for their customers, they saw a real 'green-washing' problem and problem with false advertising. So what started as an effort to create a new, viable way of living that's better for our environment, became a quest to find and offer the best all-natural Canadian products from companies run by mindful individuals who care about what they create and the impact their products have.
In 2023, due to personal circumstances taking the duo out of Collingwood, divine intervention struck and a concerned and eager customer wanted to take the reins of Pine. Holly, a wonderful mother of three, is the new owner of Pine Eco + Refillery Boutique and is keeping Collingwood refilling by offering deliveries and in-person pop-ups.
