Malvern Hills businesses sign up to refill scheme

More than 45 businesses across the Malvern Hills district have signed up to the Refill scheme in a bid to reduce the use of plastic bottles.

The national campaign encourages refilling reusable water bottles from taps in local cafes, restaurants, pubs and more, rather than buying single-use plastics.

Businesses who sign up will get a sticker to put in the window and users will be able to locate them on the Refill app.

The purpose of the scheme is to help prevent plastic pollution, as well as help people stay hydrated and save money.

Around 340 million plastic bottles would be prevented at source each year, if just one in ten people refilled once a week.

The businesses signed up to the scheme span across Great Malvern, Tenbury Wells and Upton-upon-Severn and include Malvern Splash, Green Link, Malvern Theatres, Pump Rooms and more.
