18 Feb Nine Essex Wildlife Trust visitor centres have signed up to become Refill stations
Nine Essex Wildlife Trust visitor centres have signed up to become Refill stations, which means people can stay topped up with tap water while they enjoy some stunning nature, wildlife and scenery – perfect for exploring this half-term!
Refill is a national campaign led by plastic pollution campaign group City to Sea which aims to provide a network of cafes, shops, hotels and other businesses that will refill reusable water bottles for free – reducing our reliance on single use plastics.
Essex & Suffolk Water is working in partnership with the Essex Waste Partnership to deliver the Refill Essex scheme, alongside local volunteer groups and organisations.
Participating businesses can register on the Refill app and display a sticker in their window to show that they offer free tap water. The app also allows users to locate their nearest Refill station, so all they need to do is remember to carry a reusable bottle to stay topped up on the move.
The nine Essex Wildlife Trust visitor centres that are now Refill stations are –
Belfair’s Woodland Centre
Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve
The Naze Centre
Thurrock Thameside Nature Park
Thorndon Country Park
