Refill shops in Aberdeenshire
By shopping at zero waste shops, also known as refill shops, you can cut out the packaging used for most products in traditional shops. Zero waste shops allow you to take your own containers to transport the products you buy. These include dried ingredients, eggs, toiletries and detergents.
By using these shops you can help the environment, improve health, and save money for yourself and the world around you. It also helps to free up space in your recycling bin.
