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.

Waterweek returns to examine waste water

Waterweek is devised by artists Clare Whistler and Charlotte Still, who have been collaborating on a project about local water for five years. They follow “an organic process of where thinking about and being with water will take them. ‘A water wandering’; inquisitive, interactive, immersive, reflective, poetic, experiential, unexpected, spontaneous and flowing”. This year Waterweek is about waste water: sewage, polluted water and water we waste. Xaverine M A Bates found out more.
