Refill PZ was launched in May 2021, to give locals and visitors to Penzance an easy and immediate way to avoid single-use plastic. The scheme forms an important element of our Climate Emergency Action Plan and our Strategic Plan.
But then we realised that there isn’t a dedicated ‘refill shop’ because lots of independent businesses are already doing it – from water and takeaway coffee to cleaning products, health & beauty, and food shop essentials.
Penzance didn’t need one dedicated refill shop but we realised that we did need to promote the businesses that are already offering this
This coincided with the national Refill scheme widening its online App to include things like food essentials and takeaways. So we linked up with the national organisation to get more Penzance businesses on the app so they’re more easily found by locals and visitors.
If your business is interested in joining the scheme please email [email protected]
