What are Refill Centres and are they as good as they sound?

Today we go trendy and chat about the next big step for the way we shop for food. Yep that’s right, we’re heading into refill centres! These are popping up all around the world to help you only buy the quantities of ingredients you need, and postively impact the environment by reducing the use of packaging. It’s a no brainer to adopt this method of shopping… isn’t it?! What’s your view on refill centres, have you ever used one and how did you find it? If you haven’t, then tell us why! Comment below to join the debate.

Lots of supermarkets are trialling refill centres as a method to shop already. Will this become more widely offered and what else can supermarkets do to make this at the forefront of how people shop? Will we ever see this as a way to get our shopping delivered to our door?
