A Refill of Toffee

June 19, 2019

Toffee Factory has joined the Refill revolution and has listed the building as a Refill Station! In a bid to crack down on single use plastic we decided to join the movement and allow access to clean tap water for any who need it. Refill is a City to Sea campaign. City to Sea is a multi-award-winning organisation running campaigns to stop marine plastic pollution at source.

The world began mass producing plastic in the 1950’s and due to the nature of the material it does not biodegrade. Instead it breaks into smaller and smaller pieces and finds its way into the environment. Plastic is in almost everything we use, imagine trying to go a day without touching any? Impossible! The mattress you slept on, fibres of your clothing and even that teabag you are popping into a mug. You can’t start the morning without coming into contact with plastic.

Making adjustments to the way we live day to day can help reduce the amount of plastic in the environment. In the UK, less than 30% of people refill their reusable water bottles, even though we have some of the best quality tap water in the world. We wanted to encourage this so listed Toffee as a Refill Station where you can use our taps to fill up on the go!

All you need to do to find out your closest Refill Station is download the app! If you want to know more about Refill, head to their website.
