World Refill Day

Join the Refill Revolution – 16th June 2022

World Refill Day is a global campaign to prevent plastic pollution and help people live with less waste.

Together with our planet-protecting partners, and thousands of everyday activists around the world, we’re calling on businesses, brands and governments to choose to reuse and help make single-use plastic a thing of the past.

As a global movement, we have the power to create a wave of change. By choosing to reuse, we’re saving millions of pieces of plastic and sending a message to the rest of the world that the solutions to plastic pollution and the climate crisis are there – and together we can keep our environment, oceans, cities and communities plastic-free for the future.

WHY WE NEED A REFILL REVOLUTION

300 million

We create more than 300 million tonnes of plastic every year. Half of this is single-use.

Globally, less than 2% of packaging is reusable.

10%

Less than 10% of the plastic we use has ever been recycled.

3 in 4 people want more access to reuse and refill options*.

What are we calling for?

Governments

We’re calling on governments around the world to set meaningful and legally binding targets around reuse.

Brands

We’re calling on brands to offer reusable packaging options to their customers and set meaningful targets for how and when they will make this happen. Currently, just 1.9% of the packaging created by the biggest 100 brands in the world (representing 20% of the market) is reusable – we don’t think that’s good enough!

Retailers

We’re calling on retailers to set meaningful targets for reuse as part of their plastic reduction strategy. We’d like to see them matching comparable commitments like those of French supermarkets which are obliged to provide at least 20% of produce through refill stations by 2030.
