We don't eat plastic why should they?

Single use plastic bottles are in the top 5 most common things found in beach cleanups and marine life; turtles whales and over 70% of marine birds and fish now contain plastic.

You can help reduce single-use plastic pollution by supporting RefillNZ - a grass roots, not-for-profit campaign that aims to reduce plastic pollution by making it easier to refill your water bottle on the go, than buy a drink in a single-use plastic bottle.

828 million single-use plastic bottles are thrown away in NZ per year=165 Olympic swimming pools.

Unfortunately it's hard to find a public water fountain which is where RefillNZ comes in - we have signed up hundreds of businesses and council facilities as RefillNZ stations, where you can refill your water bottle for free.

RefillNZ stations are identified by a sticker/poster in their window and found on our website map.

To make a significant impact on plastic pollution, we need to sign up many more RefillNZ stations. As we are a small not-for-profit run by passionate volunteers, we need more funds so we can continue to grow the #refillution

If you would like to support us, please donate today.

How your donation will help the #refillution

$20 enables us to get a new RefillNZ station signed up, on the map and promoted.

$50 can help fund the cost of printing 15 new stickers and posters.

$100 can help place a social media ad to raise awareness and campaign for change.

If you are a business/organisation keen to sign up as a RefillNZ station, we ask that you make a minimum contribution of $17 to help cover costs of the sticker/poster, postage and handling. In return, we will promote your awesomeness on our social media and add you to our website map.

Thank you

Jill Ford, Founder

About us

RefillNZ – a grass roots campaign, which aims to prevent plastic pollution at source by making it easier to reuse and refill your water bottle on the go than buy drinks in a single-use plastic bottle.

RefillNZ came to life in Wellington in Oct 2018 after Jill Ford (Founder) had worked with City to Sea (Founder of Refill in the UK) in Bristol UK. Having seen the dreadful plastic pollution around the world, Jill was determined to take action in NZ. While RefillNZ is still largely voluntary, the team are collaborating with councils, health organisations and businesses to make tap water the drink of choice; and reduce consumption of bottled water and soft drinks, all of which come in single-use plastic.
