Natural Cement has signed up to a new national scheme to become a drinking water refill station as part of a campaign that aims to reduce plastic bottle use by tens of millions per year and reduce the amount of plastic waste dumped on land and in the seas.
Launched in January, the water industry in conjunction with the Refill campaign want to encourages high street retailers, coffee shops, businesses and local authorities to provide bottle refill stations across every city and town in England by 2021.
Vicki Richardson of Natural Cement Distribution explained why their company got involved:
“Our company prides itself on its ethical & green values, we manufacture and supply products that are environmentally friendly and produce no contaminated waste. Our drinking water approved products are also extensively used in the water industry.
We noticed after downloading the Refill app that there wasn’t many in our area so far and were very keen to get involved in this project and support any efforts to save the planet.”
The Refill campaign has already more than 1,600 refill stations dotted across the UK which can be located by downloading the Refill app off their website and many water companies including, Anglican Water, Northumbrian Water, South West Water and Bristol Water are taking part in local refill schemes.
