Put Friday, 16 June 2023 in your calendar as World Refill Day returns for its third year!

World Refill Day is a global day of action to prevent plastic pollution and help people live with less waste. This year we’re reimagining the future and working to accelerate the transition away from single-use plastic and towards a circular future where reuse & refill are the norm.

Together with our partners and supporters around the world, we’re building a global movement, inspiring action and demonstrating that the world is ready for a refill and reuse revolution. 

Last year’s World Refill Day had its biggest impact to date, with more than 80 countries participating, over 400 organisations signing our open letter to the biggest plastic polluters, 400+ pieces of media coverage (reaching an estimated 1 billion people) and 100 million people reached via the hashtag #WorldRefillDay.

Building on those successes, 2023 will include the launch of the first ever Global Reuse Summit – free digital event which will bring together change-makers, business leaders, policy makers and innovators to learn, share and be inspired. Watch this space for more info and your FREE ticket.
