Refill Suffolk was launched in June 2018 by local plastic awareness campaigner and founder of rubbishwalks.co.uk Jason Alexander. Teaming up with Anglian Water, The Greenprint Forum, BBC Radio Suffolk, Transition Woodbridge and a growing number of other groups and individuals across the county Refill Suffolk hopes to raise awareness about our overuse of single use plastics and the impact this has on our local communities and countryside.
Small changes can make a massive difference. One of the easiest things we can do is stop using single use water bottles and use reusable bottles instead. The more convenient we can make this the better hence the effort to provide a network of free tap water refill stations across the county.
We have almost 100 locations on the Refill app at launch and our goal is to treble this to 300 by the end of 2018.
As the easternmost county of the British Isles Suffolk occupies a unique position. With its big wide open skies above, rolling countryside to the west and its stunning shingle beaches to the east the county supports a diverse range of wildlife habitats of both national and international importance.
It’s also home to a diverse range of industry including the United Kingdom’s busiest container port in Felixstowe.
Embracing the Refill campaign is an integral part of our continuing battle against single-use plastic and ensuring we preserve the unique qualities of our wonderful county for future generations.
