Join the Refill Revolution!
We've joined many other businesses across the UK in becoming a Refill Station, where you can refill your water bottle for free.
The impact of plastic within our oceans is well documented. Plastic bottles are now the most commonly found item in our rivers. They’re in the top 10 most commonly found items on beaches across Europe and there are now over 159 plastic bottles for every mile of beach in the UK. We encourage everyone to buy a refillable bottle, and use the many Refill Stations that are springing up in businesses across the city and the UK to fill up with water for free.
Natalie Carroll is one of our Guides at The Deep, and she has become the city’s Local Refill Champion, encouraging businesses to put a special blue sticker in their window and commit to refilling people’s water bottles for free. The city’s location alongside the River Humber and with many other waterways running through it is a stark reminder of our responsibility to reduce plastic waste.
It’s really easy to sign up to become a Refill Station. Just visit www.refill.org.uk to find out more.
