Refill is an award-winning campaign designed to help you reduce your plastic pollution by making it easy to refill your reusable water bottle instead of buying a plastic one. When we heard about this, we wanted to sign up our own local scheme – Refill Frampton Cotterell.
Refill Frampton Cotterell was initiated by Frampton Cotterell Parish Council and is now being supported by the new local plastic campaign group based at Zion Church. The scheme will help our parish in so many ways! First and foremost, we will help reduce our carbon footprint across Frampton by reducing the amount of plastic bottles circulated throughout the village. This will help reduce plastic pollution in our oceans and keep the sea life happy.
We want everyone in Frampton Cotterell to stay healthy and hydrated. By setting up refill stations around the village, you will be able to keep active outdoors and never go without a freshly re-filled water bottle.
The scheme will help keep the parish tidy! We are all proud of how tidy Frampton Cotterell is kept and how beautiful it is made to look with the help of Village Action and Floral Friends of Frampton, so why not reduce the likelihood of plastic litter even more so by ditching the plastic and switching to refillable water bottles?
We really value biodiversity and want to protect wildlife habitats in any way we can! Reducing plastic bottle usage will help keep habitats clear from plastic pollution and help wildlife thrive.
We will be signing up as many local businesses as possible across the parish so that you will never be far away from a refill station. We currently have 8 refill stations across the parish, which you can find on the app.
The parish council have implemented a water fountain at The Park to provide you with 24hour refills! Follow this page for updates on new refill stations and the 3 new fountains we plan to install by the end of the year. Our fountain was also feautured in the Gazette! Read more about it in the the water fountain Gazette article.
