Welcome to Tiptree
The initial concept of REco Store was to bring package free shopping to the local community but over time this concept has developed into so much more. We consider the carbon footprint, sustainability and ethics of every product we offer, ensuring that we are providing our customers with the best possible product from the best source at the best price.
Inside the Store
The Liquid Bar
We have teamed up with a supplier, SESI, whose household cleaning products are not only vegan, cruelty free, non-toxic, non-corrosive but are also in a ‘closed loop’ system. This means that when the plastic drums are empty, SESI take them back, clean them and refill them – no waste, no recycling, just refill and reuse. We also offer shampoos, conditioners and bodywashes from Faith in Nature and Suma. All are free from sulphates and parabens and use natural ingredients to make high quality products that are kind to our skin as well as the environment. Just bring along your bottles and containers and we will refill them for you.
Package Free Food
We stock a huge range of dried food, from pulses, rice and pasta to fruit, nuts, seeds, baking essentials and even loose tea and coffee beans. We also have a wide range of sweet and savoury treats as well as rapeseed and cooking oil. All our food products are sold loose so you can avoid piles of un-recyclable packaging after every shop. By bringing your containers to refill you are saving hundreds of plastic produce bags and bottles from landfill every year. Small changes collectively make a huge impact.
How it Works
Our Tiptree store is small, but perfectly formed! Because of this we serve our customers. Simply bring along your empty containers we will do the rest for you. You don’t have to fill every container to the top, you can half fill or even mix different products together (like a healthy trail mix).
We offer a refill drop off service – simply write a list or label each container with your requirements, leave it with us to refill whilst you get on with other chores or go for coffee, then come and collect later.
