The Soap Dispensary on Main Street

November 30, 2011 § 3 Comments

The Soap Dispensary on Main Street is one of  Vancouver’s newest eco-friendly stores. The owner Linh moved here from Victoria and found that there was nowhere to refill her cleaning supplies and saw the plastic in her recycling box grow. Motivated by reducing her plastic footprint, Linh opened the Soap Dispensary on Main Street.

The Soap Dispensary carries a wide range of refillable household cleaners, detergents and body care products, including dishwasher powder by Live For Tomorrow that is sold in glass refillable bottles. Live for Tomorrow is a vegan friendly Canadian company and the products are made right here in metro Vancouver.

The Soap Dispensary carries fairly priced cleaning supplies that are well made and chosen to stand the test of time. The prices range anywhere between $6-$20. The metal dust pan costs $10 and the chinese scissors are $6.


These all natural bath bombs shaped like tiny bunt cakes and chocolates, make the perfect stocking stuffer.

The Soap Dispensary believes in reusing before recycling and is hosting an upcoming workshop on how to turn your leftover citrus peels into a fragrant box. The workshop will be held on Wednesday Dec 7 at 6:30pm at the Main Street store. Other workshops scheduled are a chocolate making workshop for kids and a separate one for adults, both on Dec 10.  The children’s workshop is at 10:30 am and for $20, kids learn to make rice crispy clusters, almond bark and rocky road with samples and recipes to take home. The adult class is at 6:30pm and is slightly more sophisticated. For $28 you can learn to make truffles, Cointreau balls, salt and pepper chocolates for wine and burn almond clusters.

The Soap Dispensary is located on 3623 Main Street in Vancouver and is open from 10 am – 6 pm daily and closed on Tuesdays.
