Every time someone refills a bottle rather than throwing a plastic one away, we are reducing the amount of plastic that reaches the ocean.

Rather than buy a bottle of water why not enjoy some of the UK’s world class tap water for free! Together, we can make single use plastic bottles a thing of the past!

 

With the Refill app it’s easier and cheaper to refill than buy a new single-use bottle of water.

 

By telling the world, we can help make carrying a bottle the norm and make single-use plastic bottles a thing of the past.

 

If just 1 in 10 Brits Refilled just once a week, we’d save around 340 million plastic bottles a year!

A million plastic bottles are sold every minute around the world–a figure that’s expected to grow by 20% by 2021

According to the Environmental Audit Committee,consumption of bottled water has doubled over the last 15 years, with over 7 billion plastic water bottles used each year in the UK

The average person in the UK will use 150 plastic water bottles every year–or around 3 a week

A 1 litre single-use plastic water bottle takes around 8 litres of water to produce

Landfill and incineration of plastic bottles from the UK produces approximately 233,000 tonnes of CO2e emissions a year

An estimated 700,000 plastic bottles are littered every single day in the UK

Many of these end up in our oceans and rivers–impacting wildlife. Plastic bottles, caps and lids are the most commonly found single-use item on beaches in Europe, and plastic bottles were the most commonly found item in European Rivers (14%)

There are now over 150 plastic bottles for every mile of beach in the UK

The UK produces 600,000 tonnes of plastic bottle waste a year.

Every time someone refills a bottle rather than throwing a plastic one away, we are reducing the amount of plastic that reaches the ocean.

 

If just 1 in 10 Brits Refilled just once a week, we’d save around 340 million plastic bottles a year!

 

If all of our 20,000 Refill Stations are used just TWICE a day, we’d save around 14 million plastic bottles a year!

 

We estimate Refill will have saved over 100 million single-use bottles from entering our waste stream by the end of 2019

Refill is an award winning campaign funded by WaterUK to prevent plastic pollution by making it easier to reuse and refill your water bottle on the go than to buy a single-use plastic bottle. The campaign works by connecting people who are looking for water, with thousands of local business, transport hubs and public spaces where they can refill for free via a location-based app. Anyone can download the app to find Refill Stations near them. Participating cafes, bars, restaurants, banks, galleries, museums and other businesses simply sign up to the app and put a sticker in their window–alerting passers-by that they’re welcome to come on in and fill up their bottle. There are now more than 20,000 Refill Stations on the app in the UK alone-including railway stations, airports and high street chains such as Costa,Starbucks and Wetherspoons. The app has been down loaded over 120,000 times and is used by an average of 18,000 people each month. Refill provides‘everyday activists’ with a simple way to create lasting change in their community by setting up a local Refill scheme in their area. There are now more than 200 local,grass-roots Refill Schemes across the UK covering everywhere from Penzance to Edinburgh. The Refill campaign is now going global with interest from Iceland to Australia and plans to launch in Europe in 2019. Refill is a City to Sea campaign. City to Sea is an award-winning not for profit, running campaigns to stop marine plastic pollution at source. City to Sea was founded by environmental campaigner, Natalie Fee in 2015.

City to Sea and Water UK,a membership organisation which represents all the water companies supplying tap water in the UK, joined forces in January last year to develop the campaign from a local grassroots scheme,to a national movement. Thanks to their funding, the campaign has grown from 1,500 Refill points to more than 20,000. The Refill campaign was awarded Gold at the Global Good Awards in 2018. http://globalgoodawards.co.uk/behaviour-change-citytosea-refill/Refill’s goals are to:

•Prevent plastic pollution caused by single-use water bottles

•Make carrying a reusable water bottle 'the new normal’.

•Give‘everyday activists’ a simple way to create lasting change by setting up a Refill scheme.

•Make sure people can quickly and easily find free tap water refills through our app.

•Make free tap water more widely available in public spaces like transport hubs, shopping areas and on the high street.
