Be a sustainable tourist
Take a reusable water bottle with you.
The oceans know no boundaries and plastic floats with the currents, so we are collaborating with other Refill campaigns around the world to make it easier for you to refill when you travel.
This is the biggest program, it started in Bristol in 2016 and they now have over 17,000 Refill stations spread throughout the UK from Cornwall to the North of Scotland. You can download their app https://refill.org.uk/
RefillMyBottle was founded initially in Bali. Over six million disposable plastic bottles are used and discarded every month in Bali alone – many by tourists. So a group of sustainable businesses in Bali came up with the simple idea of providing access to drinking water to all who need it, without having to buy a plastic water bottle. They created RefillMyBottle. They have an app you can download to find where to refill in Bali and other South East Asian countries. https://refillmybottle.com/about
Based in Cambodia, RefillNotLandfill have a great interactive map so you can find your nearest refill station https://refillasia.com/map/ in Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos. They also sell reusable aluminium bottles through the refill stations.
4.8 million visitors travelled to Cambodia in 2015, staying for an average of 6.8 days. Each consumed around two litres of water per day. This means 10 million half-litre bottles could have been used (and thrown away) in just one month – that’s 26 Olympic-sized swimming pools full of plastic per year.
