Peterborough Environment Capital

Project Refill launches across Peterborough

Every year 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean, with our river banks and streets littered with bottles and lids. PECT and Earth Matters have joined up with City2Sea’s refill campaign to help tackle this problem.


The campaign aims to reduce plastic waste and single-use plastic bottles by encouraging local venues, businesses and establishments to sign up to the scheme and offer passers by the chance to refill their reusable water bottles with free tap water.


You can download the app, Refill Beta, onto your phone to locate Refill venues, of which there are now over 5,000 in the UK! Businesses that are taking part are also proudly displaying their Refill stickers to show their support for the campaign.


Several national chains including Costa Coffee are on board and we have already recruited over 40 local businesses including St John’s Church, Metal Culture, Embe2go, MD Coffee, The Broadway Theatre and more!
