Day one of the 30 Day Sustainability Challenge is something many readers on here may already do, but many of you may not even know what a refill shop is.

Refill shops are growing in popularity as more people want to live a planet friendly lifestyle. They are a place where you can take your own containers – tubs, bottles, bags, boxes – and refill with loose food items, beauty products or cleaning liquids.

30 Day Challenge – Day 1 – Shop in your local refill store

We are lucky enough to have refill shops in most of the main towns throughout Shropshire. If you haven’t visited one yet, we would definitely recommend checking them out. A simple way to reduce your waste and reliance on single use plastics and packaging.

Take a look at the Directory for a refill shop near you.

Know of a refill store not listed on the Directory yet? Let us know! We would love to support them with a free listing.
