Refill Dumfries and Galloway
Refill D&G is a practical campaign run by Jayne at the Crichton Carbon Centre to make Dumfries and Galloway a region in which refilling your reusable water bottle becomes a cultural norm, with Refill points in every corner of our region at cafes, retailers, hotels and businesses.
If you are already giving free water you can still be part of this movement, get recognised for your great work and help grow our environmentally conscious community. Every Refill station and connection counts!
By reducing plastic bottle buying together we can help reduce the regions plastic waste.
Why is it important?
With 8 million tonnes of plastic ending up in the ocean each year, worldwide, and our own riverbanks and streets littered with bottles and lids; Dumfries and Galloway is keen to make a stand, and stem the flow of plastics by encouraging behaviour change to reusable bottles.
