What we are proud of
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!
- Make carrying a reusable water bottle 'the new normal’.
- Help people easily find local Refill stations to refill with refreshing tap water for FREE.
- Sign up local business, council facilities throughout Aotearoa as Refill Stations.
- Empower people to ask for free tap water.
- Give ‘everyday activists’ a simple way to create change in their communities by setting up a Refill scheme.
- Raise awareness of solutions to the plastic problem and reduce plastic pollution in the oceans.
- Convert traveller behaviour from buying plastic bottles to refilling their bottles.
