Refill Community Stories – Dorset

Introducing… Refill Dorset

Refill Dorset is run by Litter Free Dorset, a community campaign working to make the land, rivers and sea of Dorset free from litter. They work with local communities to coordinate Refill projects across Dorset, aiming to reduce waste and improve water quality for residents, visitors, businesses and wildlife to thrive and enjoy.

Protecting the Jurassic Coast

Refill Dorset are working hard to introduce reuse and refill into the everyday lives of the local community to help protect their beloved Jurassic Coast from plastic pollution. They’ve installed Refill fountains across the beautiful Dorset coast and created personalised branding at existing refill facilities across local beaches and towns.
Throughout the summer, they host pop-up events to encourage people to reduce and refill by highlighting Refill Stations and giving out free reusable bottles to people who don’t have one.

Helping businesses make the change

Refill Dorset works closely with local businesses and have over 70 signed up as members of the local Sustainable Business Network. They run regular events to help support them to reduce their plastic waste, find out more about sustainability, and access free resources and support.

Refill Dorset’s Top Takeaway:

Reuse and refill is easier than you think! Start with one small change and you’ll see how easy it is and it’ll save you money. Next time you go into town or to the beach, give it a go and bring a reusable bottle with you. If we all do our best to stop buying single-use plastic bottles, together we can make a HUGE difference.

Chilly’s & Refill are working together to spread the Refill Revolution across the UK, providing communities with the tools they need to create lasting change in their community, including individuals, community groups, local authorities and governments.

Chilly’s has been working with Refill since 2018, and by 2022, had donated nearly £700,000 to support Refill in achieving its work, and some of this funding has been used to support some of the 400-strong network of local community and council-led Refill Schemes. The Refill campaign helps hundreds of thousands of people to take action where they live.

This series celebrates some of the incredible Refill community programs out there on the ground helping us to turn the tide on plastic pollution – these are our Refill Heroes.
