We are saying a big firm NO to single-use plastics in our shop. And it’s why we’re excited to announce our new refill service! But we need your help for our next round.
Paying For What You Need…We’re fully embracing Waste Free February, by launching this service which allows our beautiful customers the chance to buy a range of household goods and dried foods without the plastic packaging.
Anyone can come along with their own container, be that a glass jar, paper bag, metal lunch tin or plastic tub (as long as its not single-use) and fill up as little or as much as they like. We’ll then charge by the weight, minus your container weight of course, if you do help finance our goals then we will pay you back with products from the shop over an agreed period. An example £200 would be £20 of products a month for 10 month. We are open to ideas and suggestions.
At the moment we have a refill station for cleaning cupboard essentials such as washing up liquid, fabric softener, laundry liquid and are now introducing toilet cleaner, multipurpose household cleaners and hand soap. Food-wise, we have installed 20 refills including seeds, nuts, dried fruit, flour and porridge oats all available.
We would like to offer another 40 products- can you help us and we will pay you back in food?
And that’s just the beginning. We intend to add to the service throughout the year.
