Free re-fill on your water bottle
Refill Devon is a practical campaign which aims to stem the tide of single-use plastic bottle pollution by making Devon a county in which refilling your water bottle becomes a cultural norm.
How does it work?
Participating cafes, shops, hotels and organisations can become Refill Stations simply by displaying a round, blue Refill sticker in their window. This will alert passers-by that they’re welcome to come on in and fill up their water bottle – for free!
Why do we need Refill Devon?
Single-use plastic bottles are expensive to produce, use up valuable natural resources to make/transport and create mountains of waste once we’ve gulped down the contents. As yet recycling’s not the answer either, here in the UK an estimated 800 plastic bottles per MINUTE are either ending up being disposed of or as litter, which will too often make its way into our waterways and out to sea.
