What containers can I use?
Any that you like! The joy of refill shopping is that you can choose the packaging!
In true zero waste style you can use what you already have at home and reuse any packaging you come across. When you look around there are loads of options already around the house; you can upcycle and reuse plastic and glass jars and bottles, give takeaway boxes a new purpose in life, keep hold and reuse resealable plastic bags, create your own fabric bags out of fabric you have around the house and refill your herb and spice pots instead of throwing them away.
If you do need to buy new containers try to challenge yourself and see if you can buy secondhand first or options made from recycled materials. If all else fails we have a small selection of jars in the van and most of our customers come back with their paper bags and get as much use out of them before recycling!
