ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Monica Leonard is making a promise as the owner of the new Refillery St. Pete.

“Everything in this store is safe for your family,” Leonard says.

Leonard is the creator of Molly’s Suds, an eco-friendly laundry detergent made from “earth ingredients.”

The store's grand-opening is Monday, which also happens to be Earth Day.

The Refillery St. Pete extends the Molly’s Suds brand into a store-wide concept that is the only one of its kind in Florida.

All cleaning and beauty products are chemical-free. You “refill” them at affordable rates using eco-friendly reusable containers.

“We’re filling up our landfills,” says Leonard. “So this helps us to reduce waste, it helps you save some money, and all of the products here are safe.”

Leonard invented Molly’s Suds after she lost a daughter during childbirth. She believes chemicals in the everyday items we use led to her child’s death.

At the Refillery, everything from toothpaste to moisturizer to dog shampoo is made from natural ingredients.
