Handam Refill Station is a Community Interest Company (CIC) on a mission to help communities around Pitlochry and Aberfeldy live sustainably by reducing plastic packaging waste.
Our vision is to find solutions to reduce the general waste produced in our community; to reduce our overall impact and negative footprint on the environment, and to create a community that is finding its way to comfortable reduce their waste through our fully dedicated Refill Stations.
Handam was launched in October 2018, by a very enthusiastic Kaja going to local markets and at the time, offering only a dozen different products to introduce a greener way of doing your shopping in the area.
Fast forward to 2022, we now have two well-established Refill stations open 6 days a week with our team of directors, staff and volunteers and a wonderful selection of over 300 products available in both our shops!
We are so grateful for the support from our local community, friends and families, as we couldn’t have done it without them!
We continue to listen to our customer’s requests and expand our range accordingly to help reduce or eliminate the general waste and plastic in our community to protect the environment.
We work hard to keep our prices as affordable as possible because we want to give everyone the option to make the switch to an eco-friendly lifestyle. It shouldn’t cost the Earth!
The crowdfunding from December 2020 and funding from the National Lottery helped open our second shop in Pitlochry along with the Community Eco Hub which is an ongoing project we work closely on with Pitlochry and District Climate Cafe. Together we are involving the community through various fun workshops, talks and film screenings as well as the exciting first Zero Waste Festivals in the area!
