Refill Hub is a plastic packaging free shop on wheels, serving the Berkshire area and beyond allowing me to reach out to a wider customer and offer convenience — making it simpler for you to make the switch or to continue to reduce single use packaging in your home. 

You can view the product and price list here                                  or alternatively I have a laminated product list available to view outside my van.

All foods are sold loose, without packaging* and are kept in clean, sealed food dispensers or jars so you can ensure the highest quality standards. Cleaning products and toiletries are kept in 20 litre containers with a pump dispenser. These large drums then get returned to the manufacturers for a thorough clean.

Simply bring along your own containers and I will fill these for you.

If you don't have time to wait, you can leave your containers for me to fill - you just need to put these in a bag with a label, or a scribble on each container saying what you want in it. And ensure you return before I leave!

* A couple of exceptions such as spaghetti and noodles are prepacked in brown paper to a set weight

Product Selection

Image by Markus Spiske

I work with a few selected suppliers to get a good selection of commodity and treat products into my shop. There is a range of organic and non organic foods and a price range that I hope will enable all customers to shop with me.

Some of the criteria I look for when sourcing products:

  • Ethical - fairtrade, no palm oil where possible..... (to be done)

  • Local where possible. Lowest air miles

  • Vegan

  • Circular loop

  • No or limited amount of plastic packaging coming to me. There will be some products where this is unavoidable in order to keep the products fresh. But it will be a significant reduction to multiple pieces of plastic packaging. How I then handle the plastic waste is of great importance 

  • Great products! I aim to use or try all of the lines stocked. I will be constantly monitoring the quality and listening to feedback to ensure that

The Van

When it came to my choice of van, I would have loved to have purchased a zero emission electric van for my new venture but unfortunately for the size I required this was financially nonviable, even with a loan or grant.

So, I have my lovely peugeot Boxer van talk about g/C02 etc efficiency / cleaning etc. Dont do much mileage. ultimately reducing peoples need to drive.

Refill

Refill Hub is a mobile shop selling food, household cleaning products and toiletries packaging free. serving the Berkshire area and beyond allowing me to offer a convenient service to a wider reaching community — making it easier  for you to make the switch, or to continue to reduce unnecessary packaging in your home.

My mission for Refill Hub is to help reduce single use packaging waste in the community through a change in shopping habits.

My shop, in a van, stocks a selected range of quality organic and non organic wholefoods, snacks & confectionery, cleaning goods and toiletries — all packaging free.

 

 

I am set up at several different locations around Berkshire, so I can bring my service closer to you.

Find a location that suits you, turn up with your empty containers, tell me what you would like in each container, I weigh the container, fill it from my dispensers, weigh it again and work out the price.

There's no need for fancy food containers, simply use what you already have at home or take from your recycling stash.

You can reuse your old laundry and cleaning bottles for your cleaning items, wash out those finished bottles of shampoos and body wash, to refill and start again!

If you don't have any spare containers, I have a small selection to purchase or donated ones that you can use. I also sell paper bags to help you with those impulse buys.

Join me in the refill revolution - you may be surprised to know it doesn't cost the earth!
