Find a refill shop near you, take along some clean containers and fill up on some essentials. Most shops usually stock eco-friendly cleaning products and toiletries made in the UK and loose food dispensed from large ‘taps’. It can often be cheaper than the supermarket and it’s fun!
Every single time you fill a container at a refill shop, you save one more plastic bottle or piece of packaging from being manufactured and then ending up in landfill or the ocean. Recycling helps but the process produces its own emissions, and most plastics aren’t infinitely recyclable.
