Description

We’re on a mission to help the UK fall in love with tap water again and preventing plastic pollution at source by making reusing a bottle easier than buying a new one.

Simply carry your reusable bottle, use the app to find your fill for free and tap to measure your impact. There are over 12,000 Refill Stations across the UK and with our handy bottle reminder you’ll never leave the house without one again.

Stay hydrated, save money and help stop plastic pollution. If all of our Refill stations are used just ONCE a day we're stopping around 4 million plastic bottles at source in a year!

Join the #RefillRevolution! Download the app and search for your local Refill station using the map.

What’s New

Version 2.3.1

Off the back of a hugely successful National Refill Day in June, with lots more people joining the #RefillRevolution our latest release unveils a new look to the Refill app. Everything else works the same, but we have some changes to functionality coming soon.

We'd love your feedback, email us at info@refill.org.uk

Needs Fine Tuning

Great idea. It seems allowing users to add listings though is problematic. There are multiple listings for the same refill station, listings in the wrong place (significant enough difference that someone wouldn’t actually be able to find the station if they don’t know the area), and a combo of these two. There is no option to submit a report of incorrect listings so this function needs to be added so these listings can be corrected/removed.

As an aside, I also have an issue with there being a link to “buy a bottle” that takes you to Chilly’s. There are so many brands of quality reusable bottles, not just this one that seems to have taken over social media and has horrible customer service. Some, I believe, have a philanthropic side and donate where there are water equality/economy/access issues. Also, we need to be careful the purchasing of reusable water bottles (like anything) isn’t trendy and excessive - they are better than plastic, yes, but I can see individuals owning multiple bottles and the focus should be in overall reduction. These reusable bottles still use important resources including energy, and we don’t want it to end up like “bags for life” has.

Brilliant idea, map needs a bit of refining

I think this is a brilliant idea and have downloaded the app so I can see where to refill in Oxford. Unfortunately on the map it’s very hard to tell which pins are denoting a refill station. I think they are plain grey but they look just the same as other unrelated pins. Would be much easier if they were distinctive, e.g. little water bottles.

Also, even quite close up on the map, refill stations are grouped together as a number in a circle. I have to zoom in so much to see the actual pins that you can barely tell what location you are looking at any more. It’s not really possible to easily see what refill stations are in the streets around you, which is what is needed.

A good start

This is a great idea and something that I will find really useful. Two things that could be improved:
1. Greater accuracy with the map - some locations are shown as being a few streets out from where they actually are. This is fine if you know the area, but annoying if not.
2. More international locations! I was hoping this would be useful when I go on holiday. Maybe in time this will be updated, but you can’t tell me there’s nowhere in New York that you can refill!
