Caring for our oceans isn’t easy…except for when it is. Did you know…
In the UK alone, it is estimated that 800 plastic bottles per MINUTE end up in landfill or as litter. Almost all of London’s water is supplied by Thames Water, and it really is world-class. It scored highest in a blind taste test against bottled water and is safer and more regulated. Why choose anything other than tap?
Refill London, a City to Sea initiative, backed by Thames Water, aims to make tap water refills as accessible as possible by on-boarding local businesses as Refill Stations - offering free refills to all! Thirsty passers-by can spot Refill London stickers in the window of Refill Stations, or they can check their Refill app, and pop in to top up their water bottles on the go, avoiding yet more plastic pollution generated by single use plastics.
Getting involved is simple:
Firstly, download the app now and start refilling – earning points and rewards in the process!
Secondly, you can get involved in a way that suits you, you can become:
An Action Day volunteer - a few hours long only, Action Days will be held at key dates and locations across London.
A Community Recruiter - be leader of your own pack, hold your own Action Day in your local community and recruit your own volunteers.
A Solo Refill Champion - volunteer'n'go, sign up Refill Stations on your lunch break, out shopping, be sent Refill London stickers & posters).
