Koko is a sustainable living community headquartered in Columbus, Ohio with two local shops that are home to our refilleries + sustainable living shops. It began as a solution to a problem: a lack of convenient resources to live a more sustainable lifestyle. When we couldn’t find what we were looking for, we decided to build it ourselves. When we built it, we knew we wanted two things to be at the heart: less waste, and more fun.

We believe:

  • Sustainability is for everyone – We want to provide resources and products that will help ALL humans. Accessibility and inclusivity are non-negotiables.
  • Sustainability shouldn’t be boring – We actively seek brands and makers who make sustainability FUN! Color? Check. Patterns? Check. Cheeky how-to’s? Check, check! Eco-friendly and personality are not mutually exclusive.
  • Sustainability isn’t one-size-fits-all – This one is important. Less waste is the goal, but the journey will look different for everyone. Do what you can, with the information and resources you have.
  • Sustainability is approachable – We are always learning, questioning, and sharing, and we want our customers to do the same.

We’re always looking for amazing people to join our team! At Koko, we celebrate the pursuit of a world with less waste. We’re here to help create a crew of humans who are TRYING – who are conscious, ever-learning, and making planet-lovin’ decisions when they can. Oh, and having fun while we do it!
