✨NEW PRODUCTS - BACK IN STOCK - SHOP UPDATE✨
I hope you’re all keeping well and enjoying this lovely sunshine ☀️
I wanted to update you on a few things: we have new products, yeaaaaaah!
🍆 LOOFAH 🍆
What is that? Loofah
It’s a vegetable from the cucurbitaceae family, a bit like a courgette. When dried out you’ll get the fibrous skeleton that is used as an excellent exfoliating pad or a scrubber in your kitchen.
How you can use them:
✅ Scourer for your pans, stove top...
✅ Scrubber to clean your veg
✅ Exfoliating pad in your shower
✅ Soap or shampoo bar holder
✅ and many more uses...
We now have in stock at My Refill Market those wonderful natural scrubber in slices or as a pad.
BACK IN STOCK
- Organic British Wholewheat flour YQ
- Organic British strong white bread flour
- Organic British porridge oats
1st week of June: we’re hopping to get the non-bio laundry liquid delivered, we’ll post here when it’s back in stock 👀
Just to clarify why I’ve asked you to wear a mask in the shop: I won’t be getting any extra equipment such as a plexiglass screen to protect you and myself from droplets because I believe that this would be another waste we’ll be creating after the crisis; instead, if we wear a mask or cover our mouth that’s both of us protected, so it’s not compulsory but preferable. We operate a system of 1 IN 1 OUT, please be patient, there’s rarely a queue but I serve as quickly as I can.
👉Little reminder of our new system:
I do the service and put all the dry foods in paper bags, you still bring your bottles for liquids. (Hopefully very soon you’ll be able to bring your containers again)

Question: Are you still using cling film?
The beeswax wrap is an excellent alternative to cling film or foil. Washable and reusable it’s so easy to use. Here is a little demo with half a lemon and a ginger root but you can wrap anything from veg, fruits, bread, sandwich, biscuits, bowl of leftovers.... You can also do a little pouch for a snack on the go with dried fruits and nuts, there are lots of possibilities with those wraps.
👉 After use, wash them in your sink with soapy water and rinse with cold water, let it drip dry. Store rolled in a jar on your counter or in a drawer.
🌶WRAP 🍉EAT 🥒WASH 🍓REPEAT🥑
At My Refill Market we sell beebeewraps as they are excellent quality, the company have very good ethics and they are made in Cambridge so pretty local. We have in the shop and online different sizes and packs like cheese pack, single, bread size, etc... Ask and we’ll help you choosing the right one for you.
✅ Stop plastic pollution
✅ Organic cotton
✅ Made in Cambridge
✅ Fresh food for longer: cut food waste

Hello all I hope you have enjoyed this beautiful weekend !
In our house we did a lot of cooking and DIY and I wanted to share with you a zero waste hack I have been doing for years.
🧼DON’T THROW AWAY YOUR SOAP ENDS🧼
👉Each time a soap bar is coming to an end, I keep it in a little empty tin (I kept after I’ve finished a deo 😉).
1- When I have enough of little pieces of soap ends, I grate them or cut them into little pieces and put them in a pan with very little of water and let it melt on very low heat while stirring regularly.
2- When your ends are all melted you can add a few drops of essential oils if you don’t like the smell of it (by mixing lots of different fragrances it can have an odd smell).
3- Then pour your mixture into molds (any cupcake or other small baking ones are fine)
4- Let it cure for 4 weeks minimum (term for drying for soaps)
That’s it, you have your zero waste soaps !

2 years ago that was me at My Refill Market’s first market in Wolverton!
Wouah! It feels sooo good! I have met such wonderful and like minded people, customers who became friends, and everyone who have been supporting My Refill Market in any way. I would like to believe I have achieved something and I have contributed to change people’s mind. This journey has just started, this is the beginning.... because zero waste is not about the result it’s about the journey.
Keep reducing your waste, making swaps for reusable, litter picking, choosing durable and reusable rather than cheap or single-use, buying slow fashion rather than fast fashion, supporting local businesses rather than multinational corporations....
We are doing this for the future generations, this resonates with even more sense now...
Thank you, Karen ☺️ ... See MoreSee Less
Boost your proteins 💫🌱
Have you tried to add lentils in your diet? They are super tasty, contain a good amount of proteins, have tons of health properties and quick to cook. In our household it’s a staple that everyone love. Here’s a few ideas of meals I cook with lentils:
🍏 New potatoes salad with green lentils and mustard vinaigrette.
🍏 Chilli sin carne (red split lentils substitute the meat in your tomato sauce).
🍏 Lentils bolognese.
🍏 Saucisses lentilles (French stew with sausages and Puy lentils).
🍏 Indian Dhal (super quick with red split lentils).
🍏 BBQ Lentils meatballs.
... there’s lots more recipes on Pinterest for inspiration.
At My Refill Market, you can find organic red split lentils and organic green lentils.
👉🏻 And you, what’s your favourite lentil recipe?
