Call to Bedford Residents: “stay hydrated and prevent plastic pollution this summer”

Refill Bedford is encouraging the people of Bedford to choose to reuse by opting for a reusable water bottle and filling up on the go, rather than buying a single-use plastic bottle.

Refill is a nationwide scheme providing a network of points offering the public free tap water in the UK. The network comprises high street retailers, cafes, restaurants, other businesses, museums, and local authorities.

Refill Bedford said that in the UK, we make our way through 7.7 BILLION plastic water bottles every year and an estimated 700,000 plastic bottles are littered every single day.

Water UK, the trade association and Refill partners, said that this country’s drinking water is of the highest standard, among the best in the world. Adding that very strict standards apply to piped drinking water to protect public health.
