What is Refill Station Camden?

Social distancing measures will be in place.  

Refill Station Camden sells body care and cleaning products that are ethically and sustainably sourced. Our stall dispenses liquids and sells other household products to customers that buy or bring their own reusable containers, lidded jars and reusable bags. You can buy by weight from our bulk tap dispensers so you can choose the right amounts of products you need for your home and family. 

We are committed to creating local jobs, supporting small local enterprise and eliminating waste or disposable single use items or outer packaging.

We have just partnered with a local enterprise making reusable masks in various patterns and colours. The protective face masks can be hand or machine washed for safe reuse and recycled in textiles bins at end of life. 

This project was initially funded by by the London Waste & Recycling Board, and is supported by the North London Waste Authority and a range of community partners

How can I get involved in Refill Station Camden?

Volunteers wanted

We are looking for volunteers with: 

  • wood working and carpentry experience - to help us design and build a new Refill Station Camden stall from reclaimed waste wood (under social distancing measures)
  • web design experience - for a new external online booking site for offering home deliveries and pop-up stall events in 2021

This new stall will then  be located at the Canopy Market in King Cross and offer a part-time weekend job.

Phase 2 of Refill Station Camden

For 20201, the project team are looking to create a garage shop and restore two e-cargo bikes for deliveries. 

We will also be working with Central Saint Martins - University of the Arts London students later this year to design a template for community kiosk stalls. This should provide local residents with a ‘how to guide’ to build their own 'Refill Station Camden' Stall  out of scrap wood material.
