Some new additions to the shop while things feel a bit the same

We’re pleased to share we are now offering a number of top-up services in store, including Faith in Nature Shampoo and Conditioner, varieties of Ecover Washing-up Liquid and Fabric Softener, Cleanol Anti-bacterial Liquid Hand Soap, Concentrate Disinfectant and CleanPro Alcohol Hand Gel.

If you have any questions or feedback about the ranges, we’d love to hear from you. Please do get in touch and make this the last washing up bottle you ever buy!

New in: refillable cleaning products

Prior to lockdown and as part of our mission to reduce the use of plastic bottles at Galleon Stores, we had plans to introduce a refilling service for some cleaning products.

You can now find three refillable cleaning products in the shop: Ecover Washing-Up Liquid in Lemon & Aloe Vera and Camomile & Clementine varieties, and Ecover Sensitive Fabric Softener in Apple Blossom and Almond.

The concept is simple – come in and purchase a bottle and once you’re done with it, come back in and refill your bottle.

We want your feedback on the products too, to let us know how they perform and how you find the service. Perhaps you know of other suppliers we could consider? Please let us know!

We’re committed to developing our work to reduce plastic waste in the shop, and the success of our latest refillable products will influence how fast we go in introducing more. We are already looking at laundry liquid from Ecover and shampoo and conditioner from Faith in Nature.

Any questions? Contact us here or phone 01803 842148.
