Green Tip #17: Hand Soap in Bulk

Method Soap bulkWhen we have guests come over I like to give them the choice of using a liquid hand pump soap as opposed the the  bar we normally use.  So I had bought a small bottle of Method mint and vanilla hand soap last winter. When it ran out I really did not want to buy a whole new one. Lucky for me I discovered that Method sells refill pouches of the soap. So a bottle of the soap would cost me about $4.00. The refill pouch costs $6.00 but it can refill almost 3 whole bottles! Moreover, the footprint of the pouch is 83% smaller than the plastic bottle. It takes less plastic, water and energy to produce it. Works for me and my guests! What soaps do you like to use for guests?
