The easy way to reduce plastic pollution
Refill is an award-winning campaign to prevent plastic pollution, started in the UK, in 2015 by City to Sea. Our app was the first on the market and makes it easy to reuse and refill your own bottle with free tap water.
But we know the problem is more than just plastic bottles. The Refill App is expanding to include places where you can eat, drink and shop without the pointless packaging.
One million plastic bottles
are bought every minute – and that figure’s expected to rise by 20% by 2021*.
How it all began
Refill was started in the UK by City to Sea, a Bristol-based not-for-profit organisation that runs campaigns to stop marine plastic pollution. The Refill campaign has grown into a global movement, with local and international Refill schemes starting up around the world.
By the end of 2019, in the UK alone we expect to have stopped around 100 million plastic bottles from entering the waste stream.
