AFTER successfully launching her eco-friendly Refill Round business in Lymm, founder Julia Stansfield is now expanding into Culcheth.
The Refill Round’s mission is to help residents of Culcheth and the surrounding areas avoid single-use plastic with their “delivery with a difference” refill business.
So far as The Refill Round founder, Julia, is concerned, recycling isn’t the answer to our plastic use.
“Only a fraction of the single-use plastic used is recycled and an even smaller fraction of that is done in the UK – and devastatingly vast amounts escape into our oceans. The Refill Round offers you an alternative to buying more plastic bottles. I deliver household cleaning and laundry products, plus a range of toiletries, in refillable glass bottles. Once they are empty and you are ready to order again I pick up the empties and drop off filled bottles, in freshly sanitised bottles. It is very similar to a milk round! I also work with amazing eco-friendly suppliers who also operate brilliant closed-loop recycling systems”.
Julia estimates since June 2020 over 2200 plastic bottles have been saved – “plus our products are eco-friendly and are cruelty-free. We also stock a range of plastic-free household extras, such as compostable kitchen sponges and reusable food wraps”.
The Refill Round also wants to make refills accessible to everyone.
“Even as a keen refiller myself I often forgot to take my empty bottles out with me or struggled to carry them all home when full. This way you can simply order through my website, refillround.co.uk, and I deliver them to you. Zero fuss and zero waste.”
