The Refill Scheme

EDM number 1614 in 2017-19, proposed by Douglas Chapman on 11/09/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Waste management.

That this House welcomes the Refill Scheme, a national tap water campaign which identifies registered refill stations where members of the public can fill up a reusable bottle with free tap water in order to reduce the use of single-use plastic bottles; notes that, in the UK, 11,000 plastic bottles per minute end up in landfill or as litter, often finding their way into our oceans and damaging our marine environment; welcomes the introduction of the free Refill app which allows users to quickly identify refill stations in their locality and allows public places, shops, restaurants and businesses to register as a refill station; congratulates the Dunfermline and West Fife constituency which already has 35 refill stations registered on the app and growing, in no small part thanks to promotion of the scheme by the Plastic-Free Dunfermline group; and encourages other organisations across the UK to sign up for the scheme and help reduce the use of single-use plastic in our environment.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
