As an incentive to reduce the use of single use plastic bottles for water, this initiative has been rolled out. And it seems like a good one.
Really quite simple. Carry a refillable water bottle, and find a refill location.
Participating shops and businesses, which include cafes like Costa Coffee, will display a “refill” sticker in their windows to let people know they are offering free tap water.
Now all we need to do is get the same sort of idea rolled out for coffee shops too.
Pubs have for years filled personal tankards (although licencing might prohibit it now)
Plenty of people carry Thermos style cups from home on a daily basis, some even just using a mug.
So why not roll this out into coffee shops. Bring your own container, save 5p.
Which FH coffee shop is going to be first to roll this out? Start the movement!
