ecobirmingham is a new charity for Birmingham that will help change the city. We want to help create a sustainable city, inspire positive change and build stronger communities.

Created in 2009 as Northfield Ecocentre, a project of Central England Quakers, we became an independent charity in July 2018, allowing us to grow our work across the city.


Refill birmingham

Refill is a national campaign set up by City to Sea. It aims to reduce plastic pollution at source by making it easier for people to reuse and refill their bottles with free tap water while out and about.

We are the local champion for the campaign. We are working with a number of partners on Refill Birmingham which we hope will effect systemic change in the city. It should reduce the use of a large quantity of single use plastic bottles and improve the lives of many of the city’s citizens, engage businesses and residents in the environmental agenda, as well as preparing the city for the Commonwealth Games 2022 to be as green and plastic free as possible.
