Help in your environment

Become a Refill station

Refill is a practical tap water campaign that aims to make refilling your bottle as easy, convenient and cheap as possible by introducing refill points on every street. Participating cafes, bars, restaurants, banks, galleries, museums and other businesses display a round, blue sticker in their window, inviting thirsty passers-by to come on in and fill up their bottle – for free. The aim is to reduce the amount of plastic bottles ending up in our oceans, while keeping people healthy, hydrated and saving them money at the same time!

Sign up as a refill station!  No need to install water coolers or stop selling bottled water (unless you want to), just promote and offer free tap water refills to your customers, and display a free Refill Devon window sticker.

Transform wasteland into a community garden

Community gardening gives people an opportunity to make lasting improvements to their local environment.

It’s Your Neighbourhood (RHS) scheme is part of Britain in Bloom and supports community groups in cleaning up and greening up their immediate local environment – whether that’s the street they live in, or a small patch of communal land needing a revamp.
