Furman University Alumna Offers Consumers A Sustainable Alternative

Michaela Barnett ’15 has a couple of good reasons for wearing a T-shirt to work.

One reason is that the shirt displays the name of her startup company, KnoxFill, a zero-waste household products store.

The other reason is that, thanks to her passion for conservation and her work at the Shi Institute for Sustainable Communities, “I’m not a big shopper, as you can imagine,” she laughs.

People do still need to shop, however, and using refillable containers is one way they can help reduce harmful waste. That’s where KnoxFill comes in.
