Deposit and Refill Scheme

PLASTIC-FREE AND PROUD

How it works

Pick your product and we’ll fill it to your chosen capacity. Once empty, the container can be refilled again and again.

Customers pay a £2 deposit for a container: either aluminium bottles, available in sizes 250ml or 500ml, or glass candle jars.

If you decide not to refill your container, simply return it to us undamaged for your deposit back, or keep it for use at home.

Our refillable candles are offered under the same scheme – simply pay your initial £2 deposit and the refill candle price will apply when you place your next order. We’ll bring a fresh candle when we pick up your empty jar.

Why it works

The Ecopia refill scheme isn’t only good for the planet, it’s good for people, too.

We work with artisans and small, independent businesses – many locally based. Every time you choose to refill with Ecopia, you’re supporting real people, not big business.

Aluminium is a durable, natural material ideal for storing cosmetic products. Unlike plastic, aluminium doesn’t leach nasty chemicals into the atmosphere, and unlike steel or iron, it doesn’t rust, so there’s need to worry about surface staining.

We use premium quality glass jars for our refillable candles, complete with natural cork lids. A lot of energy is involved in the recycling of glass – by reusing jars instead of recycling them, our customers are reducing their carbon footprint, which is better for the planet.

Our ethos is refill, reuse, recycle - repeat
