So it's been a few weeks now since we launched our Free Tap Water Refills in store. We've also signed up to the Refill App, to widen the awareness and reach to customers and visitors to Greenwich alike.
For those of you who read our previous post, i can honestly say that we are absolutely blown away at how many people are actively taking part. We are getting around 20 - 30 people a day topping up their water bottles (during the week). The weekends are proving crazy, and recently we had to dedicate a sole member of the team to be on water bottle duty. It sparks memories of Dirty Dancing and 'I carried a water melon', but of course we're turning the phrase 'I carried a water bottle'.
It's fantastic that so many people are refilling their water bottles and that we are able to help in their quest. We are super happy that people are not disposing of their single use plastic bottles and are reusing them. Surprisingly there are a high number of disposable bottles coming through the door, however, like I say, it's great that they are being reused rather than thrown away and another bottle purchased.
If we all work to reuse, reduce and recycle, we can certainly impact the number of single use plastic bottles being used. Without being 'salesy'....check out our Buntu reuseable water bottles, they're great for hot and cold drinks and take single use plastics out of the equation.
So come on Greenwich and the wider community....let's get filling those water bottles!
