Waste Not... Refills, not Landfill

‘Waste Not… ‘ is a community interest company selling refills of household cleaning and personal care products. 

 

We launched in September 2019 with the aim of extending the reach of Cheltenham’s not-for-profit zero-waste shop Food Loose in Portland Street. 

We want to make it easier to source refills of common household and personal care products through our pop-up refill stations and home delivery refills service.  

We also run eco tips sessions for community groups, where we share hints and tips for reducing waste and ideas for alternatives to single-use plastic.  

Our commitment to the environment

 

  • We are proud to be part of Plastic-Free Cheltenham’s Business Champions network, and we pledge to support and promote initiatives to reduce unnecessary plastic waste throughout our local area.
  • Our business is all about reducing single-use plastic packaging. All our household products come in reusable 20 litre containers, and we are working with our bulk toiletries supplier to remove as much packaging as possible from their deliveries.   All household and personal care accessories come from companies who share our ethos and use the mimimim possible packaging, all of which is either made of paper or card.  We offer customers tote bags made from upcycled materials instead of new bags.  
  • When running workshops, we aim to source materials as carefully as possible, and where we cannot avoid plastic packaging, we always try to find additional uses for that material.  Our refreshments are home-made, and we avoid disposables.
