Balnacra Arts & Pottery by Vicky Stonebridge

Refill Corner- New for 2022

We’ve set up a corner for refillables in the pottery studio. Balnacra Pottery already has a policy of ‘towards zero waste’, while it’s currently very difficult to calculate the carbon footprint of a small business, I try to offset this by using other peoples waste for a lot of my processes, ( packaging, containers for clay and glazes, bottles for glaze effect, sawdust for raku firings, etc etc ), I also grow and plant a lot of trees and plants to compliment my business activities ( gardening and crofting ). While I can reuse many plastic containers at the studio, I would rather not be buying them in the first place, especially for regular household use. Our nearest refillables shop is 25miles away, so I wanted to create the opportunity locally for people to reduce the use of disposable plastics for household goods.

So far we have;

  1 litre 500ml
Laundry Liquid £4.22 £2.11
Washing up Liquid £2.18 £1.09
Toilet cleaner £2.38 £1.19
Hand wash £3.55 £1.78
Hand Sanitiser £2.70 £1.35
Shampoo £1.80 £0.90
Conditioner £3.12 £1.56

product details in images below.

It’s pretty simple, wash out and bring along your old plastic bottles. the cost is calculated by volume. ( 1 litre, 350ml etc ).

Lets all do our bit for the planet and oceans and stop using disposable plastics !
