Refill Hertfordshire for free
Last week saw National Refill Day and the launch of ‘Refill Hertfordshire’. The concept is simple – to make it easy, convenient and totally free to refill your water bottle, by introducing Refill Stations in as many places as possible to reduce the 7.7 billion single-use water bottles thrown away in the UK each year.
Herts has over 300 registered refill stations – e.g. cafes, bars and restaurants. Look for the refill sticker in their window or search on the app or website.
War on Plastic with Hugh and Anita
You may have seen the recent BBC 1 series ‘War on Plastic’ with Hugh Fearnely-Whittingstall and Anita Rani which has highlighted the huge amount of single-use plastic packaging in our homes, largely generated from the top 10 supermarkets.
Every minute of every day a truckload of plastic is finding its way into the oceans. Read about other shocking facts from the programme and learn how you can help with our Reusables guide.
What DIY waste can I take to the tip?
With the sun making an appearance again, many of us may well be hoping to get on with a few odd jobs around the house and garden.
Unwanted materials that have been created as part of a business – even if from your own home – need to be disposed of elsewhere. Check our website for more information and find details of our commercial waste site in St Albans.
