Steph said: “With the planet in the throes of a climate emergency, the refill retail sector is growing.

“Refill shops offer a great way to shop more sustainably, save money and have a positive impact on the planet.

“The Just One Bottle campaign launched on January 1 to encourage people to just try refilling one bottle.

“If each household did this, imagine the impact it would make.

Steph runs the Steph's Sustainable Stuff stall on the market.

“Whether it’s refilling an empty bottle of washing up liquid or a shampoo bottle, we’re encouraging people to just give it a go.”

People can find Steph’s Sustainable Stuff at Chesterfield market, opposite Boots on Thursdays and in New Square on Saturdays between 7.30am and 4pm.

People can also email Steph on [email protected] for more information about her stall and the campaign.

Steph added: “The network of refill shops across the UK all have the same goal – to help the fight against climate change and to support our communities in their sustainable goals.

“Many members of the public feel powerless against the effects of climate change and that they aren’t able to contribute to the fight against it.

“This campaign will help to empower people, showing that together, with just one small change, we can all contribute to the fight against climate change.”
