Refill Bicester and Banbury
Launched on the 8th September 2017, Bicester and Banbury are the first Refill schemes in North Oxfordshire. Both historic market towns have long relationships with the water, from Roman times they have been surrounded by the River Ray, Cherwell and ultimately the River Thames not to mention the Oxfordshire Canal.
Residents of both towns are driven to protect their waterways, canals and wildlife by preventing single-use plastic bottles from being littered. This has the direct benefit on the cleanliness of the towns but also in reducing plastic pollution across the local environment.
The local scheme, which is sponsored by Bicester-based business BRITA UK and has the backing of Victoria Prentis MP, aims to make refilling a reusable water bottle on the go and staying hydrated as easy, convenient and cheap as possible.
Local businesses can sign up now to be a ‘Refill Station’ and provide free tap water and volunteers always welcome to help spread the word contact [email protected] to find out more.
