Launched in 2021 and operating in North Bristol, Oat Float is a refill shop on wheels, helping our customers reduce their plastic footprint. We’re passionate about reuse – many of the bottles, tubs, bags and jars that we already have can be refilled many times over – we simply don’t need new packaging each time we buy something – it is an unbelievable waste.
Oat Float is owned and run by Matt Wilkinson. In 2019, his family were one of 50 Bristol households to take part in Bristol Waste’s inaugural #wastenothing challenge, an experience that opened their eyes to refilling. If only the refill shop was on our doorstep, they used to muse. Oh wait, it is, and it’s called the Oat Float!
Oat Float won our Circular Economy and Waste Award at Future Leap’s Festival of Sustainable Business Awards Ceremony 2023!
