On October 1st 2020, the refreshed Refill app was launched. Your clients can download the app to find out where to eat, drink and shop without the pointless packaging including coffee stops, water on the go, lunch or shopping with less packaging. Nearly 1,700 Welsh businesses have signed up which helps to reduce plastic, save money and time and your clients can track their impact too.
Refill Cymru is part of City to Sea, a non-profit organisation. Since its launch in 2018 it has helped some key projects take place. Refill stations can now be found along the Wales Coast Path, at key Cadw castles and historic sites and Cardiff Airport. There are currently 65 refill schemes in towns and communities across Wales and new schemes are starting all the time.
There has been concern around hygiene and reusables due to the COVID-19 pandemic. City to Sea created a task force called Repeat with over 20 cross-sector organisations. Over 120 health scientists stated that they are safe as long as basic hygiene is followed.
