World Refill Day
Event Date: 16/06/21
World Refill Day is a global public awareness campaign to prevent plastic pollution and help people live with less waste. Together with our planet-protecting partners, and thousands of everyday activists around the world, we’re calling on businesses, brands and governments to choose to reuse and help make single-use plastic a thing of the past.
As a global movement, we have the power to create a wave. By choosing to reuse, we’re saving millions of pieces of plastic and sending a message to 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, cities and communities plastic-free for the future.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED:
Make small changes by choosing to reuse. Try out a reusable water bottle, coffee cup, a zero-waste shop or switching to loose fruit & veg. See what else you can refill! Join our #Swap2Save campaign. Let us know what you’re swapping .
Download the free Refill app to find places to shop with less plastic.
Inspire change. Show your friends, family and wider community how easy it is to refill and reuse. Share a selfie of you and your reusable bottle, cup or container and tell the world how easy it is to choose to reuse this #WorldRefillDay.
Visit local cafés, retailers and businesses and see what you can refill. Show some love to the amazing businesses that are powering the #RefillRevolution and let the businesses not yet accepting reusables know you want to be able to #ChooseToReuse by sharing the guidance with them.
Use your voice on social media. Tag big brands, businesses and governments and let them know that we want to see action to tackle single-use plastic and reuse is the solution.
