THE GLOBAL REUSE SUMMIT
This World Refill Day, we launched the first ‘Global Reuse Summit’ – a free digital event for change-makers, business leaders, policy makers and innovators to learn, share and be inspired as we united to drive the transition from single-use to reuse, and tackle the global plastic and climate crisis we currently face.
Hosted LIVE on June 16th, by City to Sea founder and award-winning campaigner and author Natalie Fée, we embarked on a journey to create a shared vision of the future we want and need to see.

REIMAGINING THE FUTURE
From brands and businesses, to researchers, campaigners and activists – we heard from leaders in the space, with sessions covering all aspects of the refill and reuse, including global policy, packaging, business innovation, and localised system change. Register to get access to inspirational talks, provocative panels, in-depth workshops and more.
As a global movement, we have the power to create a wave of change and show the rest of the world that the solutions to plastic pollution and the climate crisis are there – and together we can keep our environment, ocean, and communities plastic-free for the future.

City to Sea is proud to bring you the world’s first ‘Global Reuse Summit’ this World Refill Day. Tickets are free but if you are able to, please consider making a suggested donation of £10 so we can continue to make space at the table for those communities who too often are on the side-lines when it comes to discussions on the plastic pollution that they are most impacted by.
(And, if you are a UK taxpayer, your gift will be eligible for Gift Aid, meaning we can claim an additional 25p for every £1 you spend with us, at no extra cost to you!)
