New company makes zero-waste shopping more accessible

Traveling recharges Mobile recharge is a new Kimberley-based company with a mission to make zero waste shopping more convenient and accessible for people located in Kimberley, Cranbrook and everywhere in between.

Those looking to reduce the waste they create at home now have the option to order online and have their products delivered, instead of having to make an extra trip to the store.

Lindsay Sackett, owner and founder of Traveling Top-Ups, uses her e-bike to tow the mobile filling station from location to location in a bike trailer.

For those unfamiliar with the concept of refill, it is a store or retailer where customers can purchase goods in their own reusable containers instead of single-use packaging, with the aim of reducing waste.

After browsing the Traveling Top-Ups online store, customers who place an order will receive it on their doorstep the following day, Monday to Saturday, provided they live between Kimberley and Cranbrook.

Customers are encouraged to leave their containers outside of their delivery address to be filled with the product they purchased, but can also choose to have their order delivered in reusable containers for a small deposit.

Grab roving refills at Flora Bora Blooms in Kimberley and the Lake Jaffray-Baynes Farmers’ Market, alternating Saturdays through early September to say hello.
