Chanctonbury Leisure Centre is pleased to announce that the facility will now host a weekly Refill Centre. Starting on Thursday, August 24th, the centre will run every Thursday evening between 5.00pm and 10.00pm, then Friday between 8.00am and 2.00pm.
In a significant step towards reducing the environmental impact of single-use plastics, the Refill Centre offers a sustainable solution for residents to refill their bottles with a variety of household essentials, including Faith & Nature Shampoo, Washing Up Liquid, Washing Machine Detergent, Body Wash, and Hand Wash.
This not only reduces the need for single-use plastic bottles but also promotes a circular economy model where containers are reused, minimising waste. By refilling containers and bottles with products such as cleaning solutions, detergents, and personal care items, you eliminate the need for new packaging every time you purchase these items. This significantly reduces the amount of plastic and other materials that end up in landfills or as litter.
Additionally, utilising a refill centre can be up to 30% more cost-effective than buying new – since you’re paying for the product itself rather than the packaging, refilling will be more budget-friendly in the long run.
Speaking about the new initiative, Chanctonbury Leisure Centre Director, Andrew Dunstan said: “We’re thrilled to provide our community with a convenient and eco-friendly option to shop for essential products. Small changes like these can lead to a big impact on our environment and inspire others to take similar actions.”
We look forward to seeing residents of Storrington and surrounding areas making the most of this opportunity.
