Find FREE Water on The Go

In New Zealand an estimated 828 million single-use plastic bottles are thrown away per year, (that’s about 168 each) = 165 Olympic swimming pools. Contributing to the plastic pollution in our oceans and getting into the fish we eat.

RefillNZ aims to make refilling with tap water the new norm – by making free water more freely available.

Participating businesses have a RefillNZ sticker in their window – to show that they are a Refill station and you’re welcome to come on in and fill up your bottle – for free!
