Vegan Food Wraps, Horsforth Refill Station Update & Rainforest Appeal

Smug is nearing its 100th online order. We’d like to thank everyone who has bought from us. You have proven that there is a need for plastic free and vegan alternatives, outside what big supermarkets currently offer. We are very pleased to fill the gap.

Amazon Rainforest Crisis

This weekend, we’re planting one tree in the Amazon for every order, and we will donate 5% of our profits to the WWF emergency fund.

New Stock

You’ll find this week’s new stock on the New In page. You can bookmark this link and check it each weekend to see what’s new and restocked.

We’re very excited to have some vegan, beeswax free food wraps in stock; the pack is £27, and includes 5 wraps, one of which is big enough for bread – woohoo! A lot of people have contacted us about plastic free bread storage, so we hope this provides another option for you.

Next week, we hope to have the bamboo razors, bamboo make-up pads, and some new magazines for kids in stock, as well as a restock of reusable cloth nappies from Tickle Tots.

If you want us to stock something that we currently don’t have, just drop us a line.

Refill Shop Update

We started off Smug Store in order to start a refill station, and we are still working towards that goal. It is difficult to find a suitable premises in Horsforth, since we would like a small unit or lock-up, and those are quite hard to come by at a price that we can afford.

But we’ve decided to redouble our efforts and will announce news here shortly.

For now, we will deliver orders free of charge to LS16, LS18 and LS19 on Monday nights. Orders outside these areas will be sent within 24h via courier (usually DHL).

In the meantime, we are thinking of starting a remote refill service. We’d provide refillable containers, then pick up your empties and supply refilled bottles each week. All products would be vegan. If this is of interest to you, please let us know.
