Julia Stansfield is the founder of The Refill Round and passionate about encouraging a zero-waste and plastic free lifestyle.

Committed to using eco-friendly and cruelty-free products, Julia often found it hard to source them and feels that the key to increasing use is to make them convenient and accessible.

As an active member of the Lymm community for many years, Julia has been involved a variety of charity projects, including through Lymm Ladies Circle and, in response to the Covd-19 crisis, a member of the admin team of the Leave No One Behind in Lymm group. Julia is also part of Lymm Transition Village– a grassroots community project that has a vision of an environmentally friendly future for Lymm.

When not working, Julia loves being active and outdoors, whether practising yoga, wild swimming, planting trees, out on her bike, walking or camping. A committed veggie, she can also often be found at her allotment with her fiancé Adam and his two daughters, endeavouring to wrestle a self-sufficient vegetarian lifestyle out of the ground and away from the slugs, rabbits, pigeons ….. Her & Adam’s self-sufficient ambitions are supported by a couple of rescue hens and (occasionally) by their two diva-like rare breed hens. Their cat, Kitty, does nothing at all to help in this ambition.
