store NEXT DOOR
Store Next Door is the sister shop of Store Brighton and was born out of growing customer demand for more product choice on their journey to reduce waste in their homes, choosing refilling and reusing over recycling wherever possible. Store Next Door aims to give options for anyone wishing to live a more sustainable, plastic free lifestyle by offering an expanded range of bodycare, hair care, household cleaning products, laundry detergents and eco homeware and gifts.
Many of our products are available for refilling your own containers or come packaged in glass or aluminium. We pride ourselves on stocking as many local producers as possible and aim to be showcasing the work of local artists and makers on rotation. By opening our second shop we have also created space in Store to build upon our food and drink product ranges. Together, Store and Store Next Door provide a one stop, convenient location to fulfill your refill needs!
In our household section we have chosen to stock a range of refillable liquids supplied by Sesi and Fill. These are smaller but growing companies who offer a fully circular system. This simply means that they take away the empty 20 litre drums, wash them, refill and return.
Products available under this system are:
Non bio laundry liquid
Fabric conditioner (cologne)
Hand wash and delicate laundry liquid
All purpose household cleaner (lavender and rosemary)
Spray bathroom cleaner (dandelion)
Spray kitchen cleaner (grapefruit)

All of these products are non toxic, no nasties and not harmful to the environment.

Face & Bodycare
We pride ourselves on offering products for face and body that suit all budgets without compromising on quality or ethics. Product lines will vary over time as we are constantly researching new options (check Store news for updates) but, our staple products include:
