Wednesday marks World Refill Day, so we’re celebrating with a list of our eco-friendly faves.
Not only are refills more environmentally friendly, as they reduce plastic waste, but they also save you time and money on top-ups.
Including everything from litres of dish soap to a snazzy mini hand cream that never runs out, buying in bulk has never looked so good.
Stock up on zero-waste food staples such as pasta, herbs, spices and flour, delivered direct to your door in returnable pots.
Empty the contents into your own jars and leave the empties out for free next-day collection. Now that’s food for thought.
