A refill shop buys in bulk and then customers bring their own containers to take home their products which reduces the number of individual containers or plastic bags used.
As you probably know I am involved with the local co-operatively run Scoop and Scales. It is a refill shop in Macclesfield whose aim is to reduce waste while providing good quality, competitively priced, ethically sourced products.
Is there a store near you that you could visit to try to reduce your waste? They are popping up all over I bet you have one you could visit.
