All about... the refillery stations

We're doing our bit for the planet

Did you know? Every year, enough plastic is thrown away to circle the Earth four times! 🌍 (National Geographic Society, 2022) But here's the twist – we've got a secret weapon right here on campus to combat this plastic waste.

Today, we're taking you on a zero-waste adventure right here on campus with a stop at our refillery stations (there's one in Fresh and The Market), a shining star in our Leave No Trace initiative. 🌿

Why Leave No Trace?

First things first, let's talk about why we're diving headfirst into reducing our carbon footprint. 🌍 You see, every small action counts when it comes to protecting our planet. And what better place to start than with our daily food provisions right here on campus?

Enter the Refillery

Now, picture this: a nearby place where you can stock up on your favourite dry goods, sans the plastic packaging. 🌾 That's the Refillery for you! It's like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory but for sustainable shopping.

Bulk buying brilliance

At the Refillery, you can grab your choice of goodies in bulk. Think pasta, grains, nuts, you name it! But here's the fun part – you can either bring your own reusable containers (high-five for being eco-savvy ♻️) or snag some in-store options or paper bags.

The pumped-up experience

Ever wanted to feel like a mad scientist in the lab? Well, get ready because the Refillery stores its products in large plastic or glass containers with pumps. 🚀 You get to dispense exactly the amount you need, down to the ounce! No more wasted food, and no more unnecessary packaging.

A world of impact

Now, let's talk about the impact. 🌟 By shopping at the Refillery, you're not just reducing waste; you're contributing to a more sustainable campus community. It's a win-win for you and Mother Earth!

So, next time you're on campus, swing by the Refillery, refill your heart out, and be part of the solution. Because when it comes to sustainability, every small step is a giant leap for our planet. 🌱✨
