Refill Birmingham

“If every Brummie refilled a water bottle once a week instead of buying a new single-use plastic one, the city would reduce its waste plastic bottle consumption by 22.3 million a year!”

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.
