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.

Along with our planet-protecting partners, and thousands of everyday activists around the world, we’re calling on businesses, brands and governments to join the refill and reuse revolution 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.

Together we are powerful.

WHY WE NEED A REFILL REVOLUTION

Our throwaway culture is polluting our planet and we need to turn off the tap when it comes to single-use plastic. Globally, we use millions of tonnes every year and it’s becoming clear that we can’t recycle our way out of our plastic problem. Plastic is not only polluting our planet, impacting communities around the world, and contributing to the climate crisis, but it’s making its way into our bodies through the air we breathe and the food we eat.

We urgently need to shift from our disposable, single-use culture to a more sustainable, circular future, with reuse & refill at the centre.

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*.
