The store has signed up to a nationwide scheme through TerraCycle, a recycling company that is able to recycle hard plastics that the local council isn’t able to recycle. Currently a typical plastic toothbrush, that gets thrown in a recycling bin, will end up in landfill or will be incinerated. The level of waste produced through today’s throwaway culture is staggering and small schemes like this help to draw attention to the question of where it all goes and ultimately aims to encourage more mindful consumption locally. The Refill Larder earns points for the scheme and all resulting money will be donated to the river clear up charity Thames21.
We also sell biodegradable bamboo toothbrushes for adults and children.
