B Bop a Lula. We’re a B Corp™️⠀
I like B-Sides. Tracks that get less attention than a heavily promo’d flip side. Often they’re less polished, more interesting, cooler or more experimental than an A-side. Fill Refill started out as a kind of B-Side idea. Now, we’re a bonafide B Corp!
What does being a certified B corporation® mean?
It means being part of a community of businesses for good. The ‘B’ in B Corp stands for ‘Benefit for All’.
Any brand can claim that their products are Vegan, Cruelty-Free or made in the UK. We’ve made the effort to seek third party verification via the Vegan Trademark, Cruelty Free International and Made in Britain, amongst others! When you see those logos on our products. you know that an expert third party has validated any claims we make.
In the same way, B corp certification is becoming a well recognised third-party verification for ethical business. When you see that a business has the B Corp logo you know they have gone through some hardcore third-party assessments to measure impact.
During the process, businesses must provide evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practice relating to energy supply, waste and water use, worker compensation, diversity and corporate transparency. To complete certification, companies also legally embed their commitment to purpose beyond profit in their company articles.
The Fill Refill B Corp score
Fill Refill scored 104.6 points overall. A company must achieve a B Impact score of 80 or more to achieve B Corp certification. The median score for ordinary businesses who complete the assessment is currently 50.9. Becoming a part of the B Corp community means Fill Refill is actively working towards a more inclusive, equitable and regenerative future.

Becoming a certified B Corp is only the beginning…
It’s been a long journey to get here. We joke sometimes that Fill Refill might be the slowest-growing refill brand in the UK, but I think there’s something good to be said for that. We never set out to be an overnight sensation, refill & re-use is not a passing fad!
Thanks to our wonderful stockists, collaborators & fill seekers for helping us break down barriers to refill & to the brilliant Fill Refill team who believe in what we do. There’s a helluva lot we can still do better. That’s what we’ll be doing.
