ReFill campaign

Help reduce single-use plastic bottles

The Refill campaign, which aims to minimise the use of single-use plastic drinking bottles in Hastings, is run jointly by Hastings Green Party, Transition Town Hastings and Surfers Against Sewage. Local businesses are encouraged to put a Refill sticker in their window to say that they’re willing to refill drinking water bottles for free. The scheme has an App to download, which gives the location of participating businesses.

Recently, on Pirate Day, volunteers from Hastings Green Party (HGP) held a stall in the town centre, publicising the scheme and encouraging people to ask local businesses to sign up. HGP spokesperson, Julia Hilton said: “We spoke to a lot of people, most of whom hadn’t heard about the scheme and were very excited by it. Refill is a great way to encourage people to use a refillable drinking water bottle, rather than buying water in single-use plastic bottles, which are very wasteful and a major contributor to plastics pollution in the sea.”
