A POP-UP plastic bottle refill scheme has been launched by the West Wight Timebank.

The idea is that people can turn up with empty plastic bottles and have them refilled with a variety of products, including washing up liquid, multipurpose cleaner, liquid soap, shampoo, conditioner, laundry liquid and fabric conditioner.

Timebank organiser Sally Gaeta said: "This initiative is something we can all participate in to reduce the amount of single use plastic being discarded.

"The scheme has had a fantastic response from people who have told us they are delighted with it.

"The products we have available are all environmentally friendly, produced in the UK and competitively priced."

The pop-up refill station can be found at venues around the West Wight — St Saviour's Church Hall, Totland, on the first Friday of month, 11am to noon, Freshwater Methodist Church on the second Monday, 10am to noon, Freshwater Coffee House on the third Wednesday, 2pm to 4pm, the market at Freshwater Memorial Hall on the third Friday, 10am to noon, and West Wight Sports and Community Centre on the last Thursday, 10am to noon.

From October 8, it will be held every Tuesday morning at Medlars B&B, Halletts Shute, Norton.

Freshwater Coffee House is also offering a pre-order scheme where empties can be dropped off and refilled to be picked up.
