It’s impossible to ignore the fact that the way we choose to shop has a huge impact on the world around us; so cutting down on our own ‘single use footprint’ is a simple and effective way to make a difference.
Zero waste shops allow customers to bring in their own reusable containers to fill up on store-cupboard essentials, cleaning products, toiletries and more; here’s where you can shop without the pointless packaging in Cardiff.
This #WorldRefillDay, you can inspire change by telling the world why you choose to reuse, and by sharing photos with your reusable bottles, cups and containers on social media. So, in that spirit – here are some of my favourite spots to reduce, reuse and refill when popping out for a coffee in Cardiff.
Environmental organisation City To Sea has been awarded £49,999 from the Landfill Disposals Tax Community Scheme (LDTCS) to help cut plastic pollution in Cardiff.
It’s hoped that their expanded Refill campaign will help to make re-use and refill the new social norm in Cardiff. Customers will be encouraged to use a free app to find places to refill everything from water bottles, coffee cups, and lunch boxes, to household cleaning products and toiletries.
From 1st October, people in Wales will be able to use the free Refill app to find out where to refill their coffee cup, water bottle or lunchbox; shop for groceries; and even top up their cleaning products and toiletries packaging-free. Refill is the world’s first dedicated app to help customers find ways to shop waste-free.
