Wednesday was World Refill Day, a global event which aims to discourage single-use plastics.
Organisers are keen to promote an app that helps users locate and find free water sources from businesses or outdoor fountains. The ‘Refill’ app reveals that Coconut and Cotton, Costa Coffee and The Mitre will refill water bottles. Gregg’s and Subway offer this service at Ivy Cross.
Plastic Free Shaftesbury’s Lucy Barfoot hopes more locals will download the app. And Lucy says more packing and plastic-free shopping options are coming to Shaftesbury.
