Reduce, reuse & recycle your single use plastic. At The Paddock Farm Shop, we are now able to offer refills in store, where you can bring your own bottle along to the Farm Shop and pay for the item you are buying without purchasing yet another plastic bottle! Bring along a bottle, any bottle, washed out and clearly labelled with the ml the bottle contains (original sticker is fine), and refill from our bulk selection, only paying for the quantity of the item you take.
If you wish to order a refill with your veg box, please leave out an empty bottle with your crate for our driver to take away (or give it directly to the driver). This must be clearly labelled with your name, the item you would like it to be refilled with for example, washing up liquid and the ml. Our driver will return this to the workroom, where it will be refilled and added to your next veg box. The bottle can be any size, glass or plastic. Select the item you wish to order from the drop down menu below - prices are listed below per Litre, however the website is unable to work out the final total of your refill as this will depend upon the size of your container. The final total for your box will be written on your box on the day of delivery.
Why Ecoleaf Household Products?
The majority of our eco friendly cleaning products are sourced via SUMA. Ecoleaf are voted the Consumer Best Buy. All products oppose animal testing, have the certified cruelty free status and are suitable for those with a vegan diet. They are affordable, plant based, eco friendly cleaning products with no harsh chemicals - much better for you and the environment. Ecoleaf are based right here in the UK. SUMA also take the 20L drums we use for our refill system back, they recycle them at a local plant near where they are based in Leeds, where they are melted down into new drums! This reduces our carbon footprint even further. They cannot currently be simply refilled due to strict cosmetic standards within the UK, however SUMA are working towards a system whereby the drums will hopefully be able to be refilled in the near future. We work with SUMA predominantly for our household and wholefood items which we cannot source locally, as they are based in Elland, near Leeds. This means one delivery per week on one wagon, rather than lots of small deliveries from different companies all over the UK using different delivery methods, thus reducing our carbon footprint.
Liquid Refills – Recommendations for Cosmetic & Cleaning Refills:
· Ensure the container has been washed out and dried prior to filling.
· Ensure the container does not smell – this could affect the refill!
· Ensure the lid is tightly secured to prevent leakages on the journey home.
· Cloths are provided to wipe your bottle.
· All our products have a product information label, we suggest you take a photo of this for your records.
