We’ll be celebrating World Refill Day along with thousands of others on Thursday 16th June! World Refill Day is a global campaign to reduce plastic pollution by encouraging people to refill and refuse. The event is championed by Refill UK.

What is Refill UK?

Refill UK is an initiative that aims to provide people with places to refill their water bottles wherever they are. Businesses that sign up to the app put a sticker in their window, alerting passers-by that they’re welcome to come on in and get a refill.

In June 2019 Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens signed up to the campaign to increase the network of re-fillers. Since the campaign started it is estimated that 100,000,000 single-use bottles have been saved from entering our waste stream.

How can you get involved?

Want to get involved in World Refill Day? If you are out and about and your reusable water bottle needs topping up, just search on the Refill UK app for a business that is participating. Surprisingly there are a lot of cafes that have joined the scheme, so head for the sticker in their window.

You can also help by showing the world a reusable future is possible, by sharing photos on social media using the hashtag #WorldRefillDay.
