Fed up of having to throw away so much plastic? We can help . . .
Tub is a local refill service in Saffron Walden, Essex. We deliver cleaning products (for houses and humans) and other useful plastic-free things to CB10 and CB11 postcodes. It's a bit like a milk delivery: we'll bring you full bottles of the products you choose and take away your empties. Our aim is to help all of us reduce plastic waste and limit our impact on the planet, so we source products that are environmentally friendly and where possible we choose local options and suppliers who take back and reuse our large containers too.
Make your own . . .
There are oodles of ways to use bicarb, vinegar and citric acid around the house. Here's one.
DIY dishwasher tabs: mix 4 parts bicarbonate of soda, 4 parts citric acid and 1 part dishwasher salt and add 1 part white vinegar and stir (it will fizz - a lot). Keep stirring until the fizzing subsides (this may take a while). Press portions of the mix into an old ice cube tray (half-fill until you are sure the mixture isn't going to expand any more, then press in more mixture until each 'cube' is full). Leave to set at room temperature (for a few hours or even overnight), then remove the tabs from the tray and store in an airtight container.
Oh yes, we have loo roll!
Boxroll is made in the UK and comes completely 'naked'. Choose from recycled (300 sheets/roll) or luxury (150 sheets/roll). Single rolls are 70p each, or buy 4 for £2.50.
First time? Don't forget to add your bottle deposit.
If you are buying refill liquids for the first time, you will need to add the £5 bottle deposit to your order. You only need to do this once, then we'll bring your next order in filled bottles and take away your empties.
