Join the Movement: World Refill Day

World Refill Day is returning on Sunday, June 16th! This global day of action for refill and reuse is a fantastic opportunity for the business community to come together and make a real difference in reducing plastic waste.

How your business can get involved:

  • Join Refill: Join the Refill community! As a Refill location, your business will attract more eco-conscious customers and be featured on their app, whilst helping reduce single use waste in your community. 
  • Spread the Word: Share your status as a Refill location across your social media channels. Let your customers know about the scheme and encourage them to take part.
  • Incentivise Reuse: Encourage customers to bring their own reusables and refill where possible. Try introducing an incentive for customers who bring reusable coffee cups and food boxes, helping both your customers and your business save money on packaging. 

Step Up for Reuse in Other Ways

Other ways you can support the reuse movement:

  • Write to your local candidate: Use this handy template from Refill to ask your local candidate to support the 30×30 target ahead of the general election.
  • Share on social media: Use this year’s campaign hashtag, #StepUpForReuse, and share the actions you’re taking to show your support.
  • Connect with local green spaces: Use tips and guidance from the Refill digital toolkit to make the most of your local environment.
  • Donate to the Refill Crowdfunder: By donating to the crowdfunder your support will help power the reuse manifesto.
  • Encourage customers to download the Refill App: Help your customers to eat, drink and shop with less waste by promoting the free Refill app.
  • Join other reuse schemes: Join circular borrowing schemes in your your area, such as our Borrow* scheme in Bradford, coming soon to Manchester’s NQ and Ancoats areas. 
  • Change your shopping habits: Look out for packaging free shops such as 109 General Store in Heaton, Newcastle. Here you can buy all the essentials without the bulky packaging! For time users check out 109’s handy guide on how to shop using refills.

We hope you find these tips helpful and look forward to seeing your support for #WorldRefillDay
