At plentiFILL, our mission is clear: to drastically reduce consumer waste in the Cowichan Valley. Established in 2022 by founders Krystal Aikman and Stephanie Farrow, plentiFILL is not just a store; it's a commitment to offering low- and no-waste alternatives for everyday household, bath, body, and food products.
Stephanie Farrow, the co-founder of plentiFILL, brings a wealth of eco-conscious living experience to the table. A 'granola mom' who has embraced sustainable practices for years, Stephanie is passionate about driving positive change. Together with Krystal Aikman, she embarked on the journey to open a refillery in the Cowichan Valley, driven by a shared commitment to reduce consumer waste.
Krystal Aikman, co-founder of plentiFILL, is driven by a deep commitment to environmental sustainability. Her passion for making a positive impact on the Cowichan Valley led her to co-create plentiFILL with Stephanie Farrow. Krystal's journey towards eco-conscious living started on her family's hobby farm, where she has spent the last decade sharing resources, growing food, and minimizing her overall environmental impact.
The Founders' Vision
Krystal and Stephanie's vision for plentiFILL goes beyond retail – it's a vision of a community coming together to make a tangible impact on the environment. Their journey from the inception of the idea to the opening of the store in February 2022 reflects their commitment to creating a space where sustainability meets everyday life.
