Re-use & Refill

What do you do with your empty bathroom bottles and jars, empty washing up liquid bottles, empty detergent bottles? Rather than recycling them consider re-using them. It makes sense, buy once use many times.

If each household in Addingham, refilled just one bottle/container each month the village could save more than 19,000 bottles a year going to recycling or landfill!

There are several places offering refill services:

Addingham Environment Group Pop Up Refill Stall @ Mount Hermon Coffee Pot - helping to reduce single use plastic!

AEG Pop-up refillAEG Pop-up Refill

Launched on 14 September 2023. Run by a team of AEG and Civic Society volunteers at the Mount Hermon church coffee morning on the second Thursday of the month from 10.00 to 11.30 am.

Selling locally sourced eco-friendly washing up liquid, laundry liquid, soap and shower gel from Miniml, plus soap and shampoo bars from the Friendly Soap Company.

To encourage people to think about switching to locally produced, eco and people friendly products and to help reduce single use plastic, we are operating our stall on a not-for-profit basis, so you will find our prices very competitive. For example, our washing up liquid costs £2.00 per litre, compared to £3.06 per litre for Fairy Liquid at Tesco (price checked Tesco Online on 22 August). You can also buy as much or as little as you like depending on the size of the bottle you bring to refill.

Our laundry liquid, washing up liquid, liquid soap and shower gel is manufactured in the Aire Valley, uses plant-based chemicals and avoids ingredients found in many household cleaning and personal care products that are harmful to the aquatic environment or thought to cause skin reactions and other health issues, such as phosphates, micro-plastics, sulphates and parabens. Read more on the Miniml website.

We also stock bars of soap and shampoo bars made by the Friendly Soap Company in Hebden Bridge.

We’re grateful for all the advice and encouragement we’ve had from our friends at Plastic Free Silsden who run a busy monthly pop-up refill stall on a Saturday morning alongside the new ‘Repair Café’. Also, to Mount Hermon for agreeing to accommodate us at their coffee morning.
