Year 5 pupils from St John XXIII Catholic primary school opened the refill station called the Refill Stop from their school playground in India Way.

The shop is open to parents and offers the school community a chance to stock up household essentials such as laundry detergent, washing up liquid and handwash without creating plastic waste.

All the products are UK-made, ethically sourced, cruelty-free, vegan and affordable.

Hammersmith & Fulham Mayor, Cllr Patricia Quigley, applauded the students’ efforts on the day. She said:

Your dedication to climate education and action is a shining example for how H&F is taking climate action together. Not only are you helping make this borough a better place, but your dedication is also an inspiration to me, your parents, and so many others to do the same.”
