*This service applies to Faith in Nature and Alter/Native toiletries only. All other refills are supplied in the Refill@Home format 🙂
If you’re not familiar with the refill concept, this basically involves re-using your existing bottles/sprays/containers as many times as possible to reduce the amount of plastic entering the waste stream and reduce the demand for ‘new’ plastic.
Doubling your eco impact, the products you refill your bottles with are amongst the most environmentally friendly and ethical options available in the UK. This means less harmful chemicals in your house, less harmful chemicals going down the drain and into our water system and more money redirected to the companies and brands who really do care about the planet.
And for an added bonus; refilling can save you money too!
The basic process:
Step 1: Remember to keep & clean your existing containers!
Step 2: Browse the Refill section of the website for the product(s) you need and alter the volume(s) to the amount you require. Orders need to be placed by midnight on Wednesday for processing the same week
Step 3: Bring your empty container(s) for each product ordered to Local Loop Clowne HQ (19 Portland Street, S43 4SA). Put your containers in a bag with your name clearly marked on. Drop a note in the bag if it isn’t clear which product each container is for. Empties to be left in the collection box in front of the gate by Wednesday evening (Thursday morning at the very latest!)
Step 4: We refill your containers and they will be available to collect on Fridays between 10am-5pm or delivered back to your door (Clowne & Barlborough only for delivery)
Re-filling works best with a 2 container system for each product, so you can have one in use and an empty which you can leave with us for a few days while we get it topped up for you. You can do this however suits you best but here’s an example (for shampoo)….
- You already have a part-used bottle in the shower and a full one waiting in the wings (Bottle 2). Clean and keep hold of Bottle 1 when it’s empty and bring that to us to be refilled while you have bottle 2 in use
