A bit about us...
Handam - refill station was launched in October 2018 from a need for a place in Highland Perthshire where we could reduce excessive packaging from foods, learn about products that could help us eliminate waste in our lives altogether, meet people that care about our environment and want to try to make it better - one small step at a time.
We started small with 5 loose food products and selection on non-food items and firsts markets in Aberfeldy and Logierait. Then more markets, pop up shops and home deliveries. As of March 2019, we had our first regular pop up at Ru'Ward in Aberfeldy 3 days a week, and from April regular pop up at Coffee Break in Pitlochry two days a week.
Ru'Ward closed in August 2019, but as of October 2019, we were offered to take over the Cones Ice cream shop at the Square in Aberfeldy while continuing pop up shop in Pitlochry.
The business is slowly but steadily growing. We went from 5 food products to 180 on our offer (and still adding new ones).
We also work very closely with Climate Cafe Pitlochry and District - organising talks for local groups, Zero Waste Festival in Pitlochry, and promoting Reducing, Reusing and proper Recycling in our area.
We have big plans for the future of our Community Interest Company and our local community so if you are interested to learn more or would like to get involved with us - pop in for a chat or send us an email.
We would love to hear from you!
