Products include laundry liquid and powder, washing up liquid, household cleaner, shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste, deodorant, and even ‘Cheeky Panda’ natural bamboo toilet roll and kitchen roll! Every product has been selected for its eco-credentials, and M20 Refills work with brands like Suma, Faith in Nature and other independent suppliers.
Aaron says that he and Fanni are far from perfect, but that they both try hard to be environmentally conscious. “We both hated the amount of plastic packaging, a lot of which wasn’t recyclable, that we’d come home from the shops with, and we felt the need to do something. I guess you could say this is a labour of love”.
So, what’s the future of M20 Refills? “We currently have customers in Didsbury, Chorlton, Stretford, Wilmslow, Sale, Altrincham, Cheadle, and beyond. This has already gone way beyond M20, which is great. People contact us all the time and ask us when we’ll be setting up a service in Bristol or Cambridge, all over the country! We’re currently thinking about how this could scale up, and we think we’d like to franchise and teach people in other cities how to set up a service like M20 Refills”. M20 Refills are now looking for someone to join their business to assist with the day to day running of the operation.
“If you can make the right choice convenient, lots of people will do it. We want to make it possible for more people to make sustainable choices.”
