Welcome to the February edition of 'Coastal Views'.
This month, we've launched a new campaign to get businesses on the coast to sign up to the Refill scheme which will tell visitors were they can get their water bottles refilled.
It has become a social norm to drink bottled water when we're 'on the go' even though we have some of the safest tap water in the world. In the UK alone we consume 13 billion plastic bottles a year. Many of these bottles are disposed of properly and recycled but some inevitably end up in the sea and on the beach.
Encouraging businesses to sign up to the Refill App is the first campaign we've launched as a result of our recent beach litter survey. If you are interested in volunteering to talk to businesses where you live, please contact Anna Chouler
at Coast Care. There's more information on our campaign in the article below.
