Council search for group to run Crawley Refill campaign

Crawley Borough Council is looking for a local group or individuals to take on Refill Crawley.

Published

Refill is an award-winning campaign that aims to prevent plastic pollution by connecting people looking for water with local businesses, transport hubs and public spaces, where they can refill water bottles for free via a location based app, rather than buy a single use plastic bottle.

Anyone can download the free app to find Refill Stations near them. Participating cafes, bars, restaurants, banks, galleries, museums and other businesses simply sign up to the app and put a sticker in their window – alerting passers-by that they’re welcome to come on in and fill up their bottle.

Many businesses in Crawley are signed up to the scheme, including:

  • Kitchenette
  • All Day Café
  • Kismet Restaurant
  • The White Hart
  • Sage Vegan Restaurant
  • Love Bean Café
  • Revive
  • Wimpy
  • Waterstones Café
  • Costa
  • Caffé Nero
  • Pret a Manger
  • Arabica Coffee House

However the council are looking for a local group/organisation or a group of individuals to run the campaign for Crawley.

Supported by the council, the group will;

  • Sign up more local shops, businesses and community buildings as Refill Stations
  • Promote it to the public through events and other channels

Cabinet member for Environmental Services and Sustainability, Councillor Geraint Thomas, said:

“With the need to reduce our plastic usage more prevalent than ever, Refill is a leap in the right direction and I am delighted so many businesses have signed up. We now need a local group to help champion the campaign in Crawley.

“I urge any interested parties to get in touch!”

Any local group or individuals interested in taking on this campaign should email sustainability@crawley.gov.uk
