Description

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 and Thames Water initiative, 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.

Our mission is to make Refill London HUGE, to do this we need sign up as many Refill Stations as possible – making refill culture as easy, normal and accessible for all.

We need to get the message out to every business in every borough, and to do this we need to recruit some people power.
