Similar to the state of California, many parts of the United Kingdom are looking to push out the use of disposable plastic bottles. A program called “Refill” is a simple movement that’s promoting people to, predictably, refill their water bottle instead of purchasing single-use bottles. They’ve released a mobile app to highlight areas to find clean tap water in their area.

The Refill app is a rewards program that was launched back in 2015 and has been very successful in England and Germany. According to a TreeHugger report, over “200 businesses in Bristol had signed on to the Refill campaign.” These establishments are easily found as they put up a blue Refill sticker on their doors. It’s a great answer for the limited public drinking fountains that are expensive to maintain.
