About Us

Owners, Christina Ward and Kate Chesshyre, who are local to Teddington, were motivated to open The Refill Larder as they were frustrated by the lack of plastic-free options currently available for day-to-day household items and food in the supermarkets. ‘We believe there is an appetite for change and since opening we’ve met many people locally that are fed up with the limited options available to cut back on plastic reliance. We need to do more than ban plastic straws and bags and show supermarkets that consumers are keen for more plastic-free options. We want the Refill Larder to ignite conversations about alternative ways to shop and ways to cut back on plastic on a day-to-day basis’.
