Waste Reduction: 'Refill Just One Bottle And Cut Plastic Use' #justonebottle
It’s the start of a new year and consumers are being urged to pick up a new habit to help our planet when it comes to waste reduction. Consumers are being encouraged to refill “just one bottle” as opposed to using multiple bottles.
The UK-wide #justonebottle campaign has kicked off! The campaign is encouraging people to play a part in reducing waste. The campaign asks consumers to refill just one bottle they already have at refilling stations in shops rather than buying a new bottle when purchasing their household items. This will aid in waste reduction and reduce the use of plastics.
Kerry Leese the owner of a zero waste shop asks consumers to “just refill one bottle.” She also explains that "if each household did this, imagine the impact it would make. Whether it is refilling an empty bottle of washing up liquid or shampoo, we are encouraging people to just give it a go."
"Many members of the public feel powerless against the effects of climate change and pollution, with rates of climate anxiety rising fast," says Ms Leese.
"This campaign is about tangible change and empowering individuals and communities to do what they can. We want to show that together, with one small change, we can all contribute to the fight against climate change."
If consumers change their habit by refilling their exiting bottles rather than purchasing new ones, this could have a massive impact on our planet.
