World Refill Day is just around the corner! Are you ready to refill and join millions of people around the world taking action to prevent plastic pollution on Thursday 16th June?

Join the Refill movement to create a wave of change and show the rest of the world that the solutions to plastic pollution and the climate crisis are there – and together we can keep our environment, oceans, and communities plastic free for the future.

Together we are powerful.

Read on for how to get involved on World Refill Day and for more ideas of how to live with less plastic.

Here are 5 ways YOU can be part of the Refill Revolution on Thursday 16th June:

  1. Small change. Big impact. Make a small change to your daily routine & switch from single-use to reuse. Carry your reusable water bottle or coffee cup, find packaging-free groceries, switch to lose fruit & veg, or try a zero-waste shop.   
  2. Download the free Refill app to find thousands of places to eat, drink and shop with less waste.  Watch the short video below for some tips on using the Refill app. 
  3. Inspire change. Show the world a reusable future is possible, and help make refill and reuse the new norm by telling your friends, family and followers. Share photos on social media using the hashtag #WorldRefillDay.   
  4. Vote with your wallet. Show some love to the businesses that have been powering the refill revolution by supporting them on World Refill Day. 
  5. Join Eastbourne’s Refill quest. To celebrate World Refill Day and our Springwater festival in May, we have put together a  fun and informative quest/history trail. You’ll need a smartphone. Your mission is to help two unusual visitors make their way back to their ‘ship’, keeping them supplied with local knowledge, a sprinkling of history, fresh water and absolutely no single-use plastic. Complete the quest for a chance to win a prize! Information on the Refill Quest here.
