World Refill Day is a global public awareness campaign to champion reuse over single-use and prevent plastic pollution.

Together with our partners and Refill schemes around the world we’re creating a global movement of everyday activists, NGOs and sustainable businesses who are uniting behind a shared vision – a world where everyone can eat, drink and shop without the pointless plastic!

As a result of the pandemic, we’ve seen a huge increase in single-use plastic – particularly from take-away food packaging, retail and PPE and organisations have backtracked on their commitments to tackle single-use and scale reuse. We’ve seen retailers, chains and brands ban reusables, despite the evidence from Greenpeace and over 100 scientists publicly stating they are safe to use.

On June the 16th, we’ll be calling on individuals, businesses and governments around the world to join the refill revolution and say goodbye to single-use plastic for good.

We’re proud to be part of the Break Free From Plastic global community and will be aligning World Refill Day to support, and amplify the We Choose Reuse campaign.
