The Green Refill Shop is the first zero waste shop in Merthyr Tydfil, we opened the doors of our small shop at the end of September 2020 right in the middle of the covid 19 pandemic.
To say we were unsure what would happen is an understatement But so far so good! We have enabled people to cut down on plastic waste and we are so happy to be part of the Glebeland Street community, to have been so warmly welcomed by the people of Merthyr.
The need for a zero waste grocery shop was evident, customers have remarked that they have wanted to cut down on their plastic wastage but have previously not known where to go, or what to do.
So this is where we can help you!
We can give you the chance to reduce your carbon footprint by refilling your containers, or taking one of our jars or paper bags home full with your favourite goodies.
There is a wide selection of plastic free fruit and vegetables to choose from. lots of options for switching day to day items to more environmentally conscious ones with zero fuss, for example biodegradable bin bags, reusable face wipes, nappies and much much more. Personal, one on one tailored help in a clean and safe environment.
We offer a wide selection of items ranging from good quality Welsh products, local honey, preserves, salt and locally brewed beers and distilled spirits.
There is no unnecessary plastic packaging, no plastic lids, straws or
carrier bags. The ethos of the Green Refill Shop is to Reduce,
Reuse, Refill and Recycle.
.A place to do your weekly shopping without all of the plastic
Encouraging our community to be more mindful of our
environment and the impact that we have on the planet.
