Refill Ireland tackles the significant environmental issue that plastic water bottles cause. As plastic can take thousands of years to fully degrade, coupled with the fact that many plastics cannot be recycled (or recycled more than once), their prevalence leads to a need for landfill space or incineration. By partnering with businesses around Ireland, a network of free refill spots will be created that would benefit the environment, as well as bring increased footfall to businesses that participate in the project.
