It's no surprise to anyone that plastic is not great for the environment or the oceans and its inhabitants. We want to help you cut out plastic by offering the option to bring your own containers to refill with your shopping. 

We will offer a wide selection of groceries to help you shop small, shop local and shop without plastic. A greener way is possible. 

This Crowdfunder will help us kit out our new shop in the heart of Ayr making it accessible to many more folks in our community. We want to ensure the future of our town centre by taking not one but two empty shops and giving them new life. 

Refilled by UG is a project by Unity Grill (next door) a social enterprise thats just celebrated its 2nd birthday. We love being part of our vibrant community and we want to do more. 

In our 2nd unit we will open The Inconvenience Store that will be stocked with 'surplus' food that would otherwise go to landfill. 

This food is perfectly edible but often rejected by larger stores for ridiculous reasons. We want to reduce this food waste that not only has negative impacts to the environment but is best served in bellies not bins. 

We could tell you about the tons of food waste each year but we know your common sense tells you how wrong it is that a pallet of food could be taken to landfill because a few tins were bashed! 

Let's get everyone talking and becoming more aware of how changing there habits can make a positive impact on our one and only planet.
