National Refill Day is public awareness campaign to help prevent millions of single-use plastic bottles from polluting our streets and oceans. City to Sea want to create a new social norm for carrying a reusable bottle and make sure everyone knows how easy it is to find drinking water on the go.

You can also download the Refill app to find free tap water near you.

Refill is a campaign funded by Water UK to prevent plastic pollution by making it easier to reuse and refill your water bottle on the go rather than to buy a single - use plastic bottle. The campaign works by connecting people who are looking for water, with thousands of local business, transport hubs and public spaces where they can refill for free via a location - based app. Participating cafes, bars, restaurants, banks, galleries, museums and other businesses simply sign up to the app and put a sticker in their window – alerting passers - by that they’re welcome to come on in and fill up their bottle. There are now more than 20,000 Refill Stations on the app in the UK alone. The app has been downloaded over 120,000 times and is used by an average of 18,000 people each month.

Sustain have recently launched a toolkit on drinking fountain installation jointly produced with City to Sea.
