Refill London in Lewisham
Lewisham Local and Refill London
In the UK alone, it is estimated that 800 plastic bottles per MINUTE end up in landfill or as litter. At the current rate by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the sea.
Lewisham has been chosen as a pilot site for Refill London, a free water refill scheme backed by Thames Water and The Mayor of London. Refill London aims to make tap water refills accessible through local businesses becoming free Refill Stations.
Thirsty passers-by can spot stickers in the window of Refill Stations, or they can check their Refill app, and pop in to top up their water bottles on the go, avoiding yet more plastic pollution generated by single use plastics.
The scheme will begin to be developed in March 2018, but Lewisham Local needs your help!
