The Refill Scheme

What is the refill scheme

The Refill scheme is an initiative designed to reduce plastic pollution and promote healthy hydration.  Establishments in the movement guarantee access to free tap water by making refilling your water bottle easy, social and rewarding!

We know buying water can be expensive and the excess single use plastic is a drain on natural resources, so we welcome you to come in and refill your water bottle – for free!

A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and it’s predicted that figure will rise by another 20% by 2021. Here in the UK, the average household uses 480 plastic bottles a year, but only recycles 270 of them – meaning nearly half (44%) are NOT put in the recycling. This means that nationally, of the over 35 million plastic bottles being used every day in the UK, nearly 16 million plastic bottles aren’t being put out for recycling.

If just one in ten Brits refilled once a week, we’d have 340 million less plastic bottles a year in circulation

Refill is a national, practical tap water campaign that aims to make refilling your bottle as easy, convenient and cheap as possible by introducing Refill Stations on every street.

Participating cafes, bars, restaurants, banks, galleries, museums and other businesses simply put a sticker in their window – alerting passers-by to the fact they’re welcome to come on in and fill up their bottle – for free! Download the free Refill rewards app to see where you can Refill on the go.
