World Refill Day

June 16

World Refill Day is a global public awareness campaign calling on businesses, brands and governments to choose to reuse and help make single-use plastic a thing of the past.  Visit the website to see how you can choose to refuse, find places to refill and tell businesses to act.

During the COVID19 pandemic, many outlets banned reusables, despite the evidence from over 120 scientists stating they are safe to use. As a result single use plastic, especially in take-away food packaging and PPE, has exploded and many organisations have abandoned their pledges to reduce single-use products. City to Sea have created guidance and support for businesses to help them return to refill.  If you find a business not accepting reusables, help them out by sharing the covid and reusables guidance with them.
