Why switch to refill?

In a world of increasing climate change and plastic pollution, such environmental concerns are becoming an everyday reality for more and more people across the globe. At Unilever, we believe that we need to be a part of the solution, not the problem. In the UK, refill stations reduced overall packaging materials used by 96%1. Not only will you be helping the environment, but you’ll also see a huge price reduction of 24% for Surf and 55% for Omo*. It’s a win-win for everyone!
