With thanks to Veolia’s Reduce, Reuse and Recycle Fund.

Help to cut plastic waste by using our local shops that have said “We Will Refill”

Five of the ten most commonly found items on European beaches are food and drinks containers, and they dominate the rubbish we find in our regular litter picks.

Look out for our green sticker, and go shopping prepared!

The Little Eco Loft, upstairs in Portland Arcade, offers refills for health and beauty products, and dry foods.

Southwell Pet Shop offers a 15% discount on all bird seed/feed and dog biscuits that are bought using refillable containers.

Pinders offers free refills for any spectacle cleaning spray bottle that has a Pinders name on it.

The Handicentre sells loose bird feed, pet food, bulbs and seeds so you can refill your own containers.

Sweets of Southwell are happy to use customers’ containers for confectionary, take away tea and coffee, loose tea leaves and whole or ground coffee beans.

Al Fresco will refill customers’ cups for takeaway drinks.

If you want to refill a water bottle, look for the blue Refill sticker displayed in many local shops, cafes and pubs. Download the Refill app for more.

We are also keen to hear from other community groups in the Newark and Sherwood area that would like to shine a light on local refill options.
