At The Well Refill in Topanga, there are over 80 home and body refill products including all-purpose cleaner, bathroom cleaner, wood polish, conditioner, baby oil, hair serum, and sunscreen. The shop owners encourage customers to bring in their old plastic laundry jugs or shampoo bottles for refills and offer donated containers for shoppers who might not have old ones on hand. The shop also offers second-hand homewares and clothing. Though the Well Refill seeks to be conscious of the value of re-use, there are some products for sale -- like sponges and hair brushes -- that can’t be upcycled, but the owners work to make sure even those are compostable or incorporate sustainable materials.

Kelly Slater, 11-time world champion surfer, created the fashion line Outerknown as a destination for more sustainable clothing. At Outerknown, Slater and Creative Director John Moore have set out to “smash the formula of how clothes are made” by creating durable and desirable wares that are fashionable and long-lasting. In its commitment to transparency, the brand shares statistics on its website, noting that 90% of its fibers are organic, recycled, or regenerated while 100% of its trunks are made with recycled or renewable fibers. Outerknown is committed to becoming fully circular by 2030 while advancing fair labor practices and making clothing in harmony with the planet. The goods, from jeans to dresses and beyond, are available online and at select retailers, including the brand’s first storefront in El Segundo, which opened in 2019.
