First, we just want to say that shopping at Oakland’s Re-Up Refill Shop is a great way to reduce waste from single-use plastics by switching to cooking, kitchen, body, and cleaning products in refillable containers. You can have your items delivered by bike or pick them up at the shop (curbside available).
 
But here’s what we want to tell you about right now: Re-Up is making a special commitment to voter registration and other political actions from now until election day. Join in for an activity each week. Snap a photo or screenshot and bring it to the shop that week to receive a small gift with any purchase.

For week one, the action is to check your voting status and register to vote if you’re not already registered. Here’s how you do it: vote.org
