Refill

 

Environmental responsibility and human thoughtfulness are essential in the creation of something truly beautiful.

 We stand for a sustainable, low impact framework of beauty and luxury, and deeply believe in circular patterns of reusing and refilling. Every year, 120 billion units of packaging are produced by the global cosmetics industry (Zero Waste, 2019), establishing it as one of the worst perpetrators of marine plastic pollution. The LCA Centre has suggested that refilling a bottle instead of using a completely new product saves a minimum of 70% on CO2, 65% on energy and 45% on water.

Refill at home
In recent months, due to Covid-19-related restrictions, we began to receive requests from customers to buy bulk versions of our organic washes, lotions and haircare in order to be able refill bottles at home.  We consequently decided to make our 5Ltr refills available online. You can now refill your LA-EVA bottles at home and enjoy the gentle scents and cleansing rituals time and time again at more than 50% off.

A 5 litre LA-EVA refill is the equivalent of 10 x 500ml bottles and 25 x 200ml bottles. This means refilling a 200ml bottle costs £6 and a 500ml bottle costs £15.

 

Our suggested refill process

We suggest that you wash your empty bottle in the dishwasher to clean it out thoroughly from any residue. Our labels are robust and usually come out looking as good as new. On rare occasions when there is an existing blemish, labels can deteriorate in the wash; if this happens we will replace your label with a new one.

We have found that having a small clean tray or dish set aside to place the dispenser whilst refilling takes place. The easiest way to estimate the fill of the bottle is to aim for the 'shoulder' of the bottle; filling above that is likely to mean that bottles will be overfilled, and replacing the dispenser may cause the product to spill out.

It is a good idea to place a little dish under the dispenser as it can drip slightly following refilling.

 

A note on our containers

Our 5Ltr containers are made from light HDPE. HDPE is the most largely recycled plastic in the UK and in most countries in the world, so please make sure you put your empty, rinsed out jerry can in your recycling bin for it to be recycled and reused.
