CALLING ALL ST AGNES

#ReFILLCornwall

Welcome to the ReFILL Revolution!

Do you want to become a part of a global movement of individuals and organisations who want to stop the needless pollution of our rivers and seas with plastic … in particular single-use plastic bottles!?

Refill aims to reduce single-use plastic bottle pollution and promote healthy lifestyles in villages, towns and cities across the UK by improving access to free drinking water, on the go.

In The Beginning

The ReFILL model was first initiated in Bude, Cornwall, by a small team of volunteers and with funding and support from Beachcare (Keep Britain Tidy). From here the word has spread and thanks to the work of City to Sea in Bristol there are now several ReFILL locations all over the UK, all of which are connecting as a network on their new ReFILL rewards app.

Happening now!

A collective of organisations in Cornwall have been coming together to discuss how to make ReFILL go bigger and better countywide – Beachcare, Cornwall Wildlife Trust and Clean Cornwall. Cornwall is a county that prides itself for its beautiful coastline and beaches as well as the amazing conservation work that takes place all over the county by a number of different organisations and local marine conservation groups. We believe that together we have the power to roll out this disposable bottle-busting scheme into all Cornish communities.

And the great news…. It is coming to St Agnes!
