Rinse, return & lend a hand.

Huge thanks to everyone for taking part in our rinse & return scheme!

When we launched our stain gel and fab con bottles we felt it was hugely important that the bottle be either super easy to recycle or returnable to us for refill. We then went one step further and ensured they were made from 100% post-consumer recycled waste which means no new plastic is used to create them.

What is rinse, return & lend a hand?

For every 4 bottles sent back to us to reuse, we'll donate 1 pack of laundry capsules to The Hygiene Bank, who work tirelessly to end hygiene poverty for the most vulnerable nationwide.⁠

This means our bottles can be used again and again which of course is great news for the environment, while supporting an amazing cause. 

So… if you are ready to return your bottles to us for refill, here are some essential things to note:

  • You don't need to send all 4 bottles back at once - this is a team effort from our whole smol community where every bottle counts. 
  • You can make your next order without sending the bottles off too - if you'd prefer to wait until you have 4 empty bottles, great! 
  • Remember to remove the pump and band from your empty bottle (keep them safe for your next bottle). These are your forever items and your next fabcon pack will not include them. 
  • We recommend keeping the original box that your bottles arrived in. This box will hold up to 3 empty bottles. All you need to do is put the empties inside and tape it shut. Don’t worry if you haven’t kept your original box, you can send your empties to us in any suitable packaging. Cross out your address label and write your name/postcode on the pack. Affix postage, then send back to us and we'll donate a pack of laundry capsules on your behalf to The Hygiene Bank

 Our address for returns is:

smol Ltd
PO Box 632

And once again, don’t forget... whether you are recycling your bottles or sending them back to us for refill - please keep hold of your pump and band around the bottle for your next delivery. Most councils happily take these bottles in your kerbside recycling too.

smol things make a big difference.
