Laura Rosengren, Owner-creator
Abode Zero Refill Service
I had started a residential cleaning company and was experiencing a severe eczema breakout on my hands off an on for years. It began to connect the dots to harsh cleaning products, and, after replacing them with natural, non-toxic ones, the eczema disappeared. For good.
In 2019, while contemplating the life cycle and environmental impact of single-use plastic, I started offering refillable cleaning products as part of our services. After a while we introduced natural shampoo, conditioner, and hand soap from local manufacturing company’s Then we added reusable kitchen items like beeswax wraps and bamboo dish scrubbers.
Reusing containers, repurposing materials and decreasing toxic chemicals form our environment is a practice I would like to see as the “New Norm” .

Simple Scents Soap Works
My name is Jenn, and I am wife to an amazing husband, a mom of 2 amazing humans, and
step-mom to many animals! I am an advocate for nature and all who live there. This is why
bringing sustainable refillable products into the mainstream is so important for me! I want to try
and leave all of our children the legacy of caring for our planet and trying to un-do the damage
that single use plastic has done to it. I am so excited to see all that is possible if we all try!
