Plastic Free Shopping

Welcome to the Refilling Station, about as close to zero waste shopping as you can get.

Our Aim:

Hi I'm Kirsty owner of the refilling station (find out more about me here). Me and my team aim to help local shoppers to reduce their packaging consumption and shop more ethically. In our 'Zero Waste' stores in Leeds and Harrogate, we try to source our produce from local businesses in an ethical way.

We say Zero Waste but actually we're more of a reduced waste shop, this is due to the fact that it is very difficult to be completely zero waste depending on the suppliers and the products we source.  Read our blog posts where we try and share with you how we try and make our own buying  choices as ethical as possible.

COVID-19 CHANGES - As an essential business, we are still open with a few changes to ensure we are operating as safely as possible. Customers are not currently permitted in the shop and we serve one at a time from our doorway. We are not filling containers for food so we fill paper bags instead. We are still refilling laundry, cleaning and personal care bottles.

1. Weigh Your Container. 

Any suitable container will do as long as it’s clean and fits on our scales. Print off a sticker with the container weight (this is designed to be used again and again) and attached it to the container
