Our Refill Communities are the beating heart of the #RefillRevolution - passionate individuals serving as ambassadors in their local area by connecting people to reuse solutions, empowering businesses to cut plastic waste, and driving lasting change.   

Thanks to the incredible grassroots action of Refill Communities, we’re connected millions of people with places where they can eat, drink and shop without plastic. 

The Refill campaign started life in the UK and we now have over 420 local schemes across the country! 

Our incredible groups are powering the Refill Revolution in their local area, tackling plastic pollution, reducing waste and connecting people to free-drinking water.   

They are our ambassadors in their local area, providing the physical face to a digital campaign.  Our communities are fundamental in enabling us to create long-lasting change and to help them in their delivery of Refill, we offer a library of support and guidance to help them make a splash!
