One of the most annoying things about single-use plastic water bottles is when you have to buy one because there is no where to fill up your own reusable bottle! That is something that can happen quite often in Ireland and I'm sure in many other countries around the world that do not have a sufficient infrastructure for safe drinking fountains.
Refill Ireland are a voluntary environmental project that are getting businesses on board to allow people to refill their water bottles in their establishments.
The many businesses such as cafes,bars,hotels,restaurants notify the public that they can refill their water bottles by displaying the REFILL sticker on their windows or doorways.
It is a fantastic way to create a national infrastructure of available drinking water cheaply and quickly as the taps are already in place and it does not cost any one anything to implement.
Refill Ireland is a relatively new project but the amount of businesses getting involved is growing day by day. Once enough businesses get on board I believe it is a system that can really work to rid the country of single use plastic bottle.
