Why Refill?

Often the first place we focus with waste reduction is recycling. Yet 38% of packaging in the average shopping basket can’t be reprocessed. In addition, the recycling process can be quite energy intensive and many plastic packaging products can only be recycled once before they are no longer fit-for-purpose. Maybe its time to shift the focus to refilling as an alternative to recycling?

Did you know that reusing and refilling saves 70% Co2, 65% energy and 45% water rather than buying a completely new product?

Refill Shop @ Sussex Green Hub

We offer a personal and household cleaning product bottle refill service at the Sussex Green Hub on the last Saturday of every month. You bring your empty bottle and we fill it, you just pay for the liquid, it’s simple as that!

Whatever you are looking to clean in your home (household or personal hygiene), we have a great eco range to choose from, and three main suppliers mean that we cover virtually all your household requirements in an eco friendly product! Bio D, Ecoleaf and Faith in Nature are all great environmentally sound products with the added benefit that they work brilliantly too.

Did you know that refills are cheaper than buying a brand new bottle?

Refills are cheaper because you don’t have to pay the cost of a new bottle. We buy in bulk to keep our costs down so you save on the ‘ingredients’ too!

For example, if you refill your own 400ml bottle with Faith In Nature shampoo or conditioner it will cost you £3.88, a new bottle and product will cost approx £6.50.

Due to cost increases across the market, refills are becoming more and more competitive and are normally well below commercial supermarket price.
