why refills?

the problem with packaging

10.9 Mt of packaging is used to protect the billions of goods used by UK households and industry* (source: WRAP 2015)

30% of packaging material, by weight, will never be reused or recycled* (source: weforum 2017)

Packaging waste accounts for 26% of household rubbish* (source: Charlotte Packaging 2015)

The UK exports 67% of it’s plastic to be recycled* (source: Environment Agency 2016)

 

China has closed it’s doors; much of recycling waste is now being dumped or buried abroad

the oceans are filling up with plastic; the planet has finite resources

recycling is not the solution to our waste problem

consumers need options for a less waste lifestyle

 

refuse & reuse packaging with refills

buying products loose without packaging = 

reduction in packaging materials & waste

reduction in material waste from landfill and incineration

reduction in C02 emissions from less packaging
