Roanna Medina opens up a self-service refill station for your basic needs to cater to people interested in zero-waste and living life more consciously.
Roanna Medina is wide-eyed and soft spoken. She pauses before she speaks, as if measuring the weight of each word in her head. And though each word comes out in almost a whisper, they fill the air that rests between us with the composure of a woman of conviction. After all, the idea of offering a self-service refill station is heavily built on trust—with your clients and your within community—and it must take a self-assured person to pursue it. But more than that, Medina is clearly incredibly organized, well-researched, passionate about her products, and compassionate for the planet and the people in it. It’s no wonder that her confidence comes as a result of all that.
