Be a Refiller not a Landfiller
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. Adding to our huge landfills and contributing to the plastic pollution in our oceans, killing marine animals and getting into the fish we eat.
RefillNZ aims to change that by making it easier to find FREE tap water in cafes, tourist places, other biz’ and council venues. So carrying a reusable bottle and refilling with tap water becomes the new norm again (!).
Participating ‘sites’ 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!
What we are proud of
“I believe that water is the best and healthiest drinking option for my family. I love knowing we are welcome to go and fill up our own water bottles at a Refill NZ cafe, even if we’re not buying food. I hate the idea of buying water in plastic bottles.”- Julie, mum of three
