Ideas to reduce plastic with ‘Refill Revolution’

Last Wednesday, Beth from ‘Refill Revolution’  gave us an inspiring talk about some really useful and practical ways to reduce plastic usage.

Refill Revolution - Oct 2018

First, Beth emptied the contents of her bag on to the table and showed us some of the products she uses regularly in her daily life, which included refillable drinks bottle and coffee cup, pouches for carrying lunch and snacks, an alternative to disposable nappies, reuseable sanitary towels, and cloth wipes for all sorts of purposes.

She also talked about her refill scheme to try and avoid single use plastic, whereby customers can take their own empty containers along to her market stall and refill them, rather than buying completely new ones – saving both on plastic and money too!

Here are just some of the refillable items she sells:

  • Liquid soap
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Bath products
  • Toothpaste tablets
  • All sorts of cleaning/washing products
  • Numerous dried food items
  • Herbs and Spices

From this Friday, 2nd November, you will be able to find the ‘Refill Revolution’ stall in Market Harborough’s indoor market at weekends, so do go along and check out some of the lovely, innovative products she has on offer.    DON’T FORGET TO TAKE SOME EMPTY CONTAINERS WITH YOU!
