A community refillery for Restalrig

We are pleased to have been able to offer £2k funding to support the opening of Restalrig’s first community refillery. The Ripple Refillery was created by the Leith Network member, The Ripple Project, and is run by volunteers with any profits being reinvested into other local projects. It aims to give people in north east Edinburgh access to good quality and low-cost food with minimal waste.

The refillery project idea was presented at one of our recent Leith Network meetings and closely aligned with Harbour’s mission to make a positive impact on people’s lives in Leith and north Edinburgh. Our Placemaking Manager, John Murray, said “This is a great example of how the Leith Network can foster collaboration and positive outcomes for the local community.”

If you’d like to visit the refillery to pick up some local produce, don’t forget to take your own containers! The refillery is open Wednesdays 11am – 3pm and Thursdays 3pm – 7.30pm at The Ripple Project, 198 Restalrig Road South, EH7 6DZ.
