How Does Refill Work?
Free Tap Water Provided By Participating Venues
Anyone can download the free app to find Refill Stations near them where they can refill on the go.
Participating cafés, bars, restaurants, banks, galleries, museums and other businesses simply sign up to the app and put a sticker in their window, alerting passers-by that they’re welcome to come on in and fill up their bottle.
There are now thousands of Refill Stations on the app in the UK alone – including railway stations, supermarkets, airports and high street chains.
