Refills available at Alston WholefoodsNow that we are settled into our new premises, we have the space to offer refills, something we’ve been wanting to do for a long time because it reduces the amount of single-use plastic going to landfill. It also has the benefit of being cheaper for you. We are currently stocking this range of toiletries and household refills:

These refill drums are kept in the store-room behind the counter. Simply bring in any suitable container and we will refill it for you from our bulk supplies.

Once empty, the 20-litre drums are returned to our supplier for refilling and reusing.

Plastic-free and Packaging-free food too

We buy more than 140 foods loose in bulk. This means that, if you wish, any of these can be weighed out into your own containers. Simply bring your own container and we will fill it for you. So far, porridge oats are proving the most popular.

Plastic free cellophane packagingOr you can buy the foods pre-packaged by us in cellophane, which is made from plant material and is fully compostable.
