Raise your glasses to Refill Isle of Man

Tue, 15 Jan 2019

A scheme to make it easy to obtain drinking water when on the move has been launched in the Isle of Man.

Refill Isle of Man encourages shops, cafes, restaurants, tourist attractions and other publicly accessible premises to display an easy to recognise sticker, appear on an app and fill up people’s water bottles with cold tap water free on request.

It’s hoped the scheme will reduce the amount of plastic that damages the environment and, ultimately, the amount manufactured.

Refill is run by City to Sea, a not-for-profit organisation that campaigns to prevent marine plastic pollution.

To sign up as Refill Stations, premises must have a cold water tap that isn’t in a toilet area or over an open drain.

Refill Stations display the campaign’s blue logo and appear on the Refill app, so people can spot or search for them while out and about.

To search for Refill Stations on the Isle of Man, download the free Refill app.
