Our story

We are a social enterprise based in Oxfordshire which supplies sustainable detergents to shops, farmers markets, cooperatives and charity organisations.  SESI Refill helps reduce people’s plastic footprint. With the surge of Zero Waste Shops and other established retailers changing to become unpackaged shops, SESI has a key role as a provider of ethical detergents which help everyone to become part of a circular economy.

Since becoming established in 2006, we, with the help of our partners and customers have refilled more than 100,000 plastic bottles. We have been lucky enough to be a valued alternative to those seeking to reduce food waste and cut their plastic footprint. As a social enterprise, we re-inject funds into broadening our product list and branching out to create new partnerships and Refill Stations. Our focus is not profit, it’s to do good.

We’re proud to have developed products that are:


Cruelty Free


Manufactured for SESI by an independent family firm in the UK

We have designed our dispensers to be easy to use and to prevent waste and mess. We support some great initiatives who help build our dispensers using reclaimed materials where possible: Bicester GreenRestore Charity and Roots And Cycles.
