I bought one, but now I want to return it.

Where do I return my rinsed Ele-pail in an Elephants store?

Each Elephants location has a receptacle for your Ele-pail. Return your new one, and ask us for a fresh one. Questions? Ask us: We’ll show you the ropes!

Can I fill my Ele-pail with mini danishes?
Yes. Yes, you can. You can fill it with all your Elephants favorites when you want to skip a disposable container.
