The UK alone produces more than 170 million tonnes of waste every year, much of it food packaging.
Refill aims to solve this by adapting community driven zero-waste systems for use in busy supermarkets.
Refill will save both material waste by reusing packaging and food waste, as users will only buy what they need.
By utilising existing food-safe glass jars and integrating them with a new system of lids, Refill allows users to reuse containers they already own, whilst expanding their functionality. Such as, adding a spout to a regular glass jar, enabling it to pour liquid.
