Contain Yourself refill shop opened its doors in the beautiful Scottish Highland town Invergordon early May this year. It was a greatly awaited place to shop eco cleaning, personal care products, food, zero-waste gifts, and more. For those enjoying leisurely activities, the owners even set up outside tables to enjoy snacks and beverages to take a break from the daily rush.
Ivergordon is a nature-rich place - full of wildlife and natural beauty, and it was important to set up a business with a mission to help customers shop with no harm to the environment. When it came to choosing what products to stock in their shop, the highest criteria for the owners was to choose a good personal care range, which is not only eco-friendly, but also with efficient, high-quality formulations. According to the feedback, generally people are more forgiving toward cleaning products but female customers prefer to use high-standard shampoo and conditioner in their hair. After researching similar brands to Miniml, the team came across some great reviews of Miniml hair care range and opted for our products based on the feedback relating to the personal care range.
The store started stocking Miniml from day one and their customers have really taken to some of the refills. The extra benefits of the brand - Closed Loop System, UK made, cruelty free, and vegan credentials, gave an additional highlight to their positive choice of the range. Furthermore, the pleasant, natural fragrances were a huge advantage!
The shop’s current bestsellers from Miniml are the Fresh Linen Laundry Liquid & Conditioner, as well as the Wild Rhubarb + Lemon Washing Up Liquid. The NEW Dog Shampoo has been very popular too so they have now begun offering refills as well!
As a newly launched business, the Contain Yourself team has started counting the plastic waste they’ve been saving from landfill, and will be recording the statistics throughout the year to share the figures with us. They’re confident that there have already been hundreds of single use plastic containers saved from entering the waste system. Considering Contain Yourself is a new business in a secluded town of the North of Scottish Highlands, they are pleased with the achievements so far but are planning to continue doing much more. We wish them all the best!
