About

Refill Ireland is an environmental project to make Irish towns and cities tap water refill friendly for everyone while on the go. We locate and create places where filling your reusable water bottle for FREE from an ever increasing number of refill stations becomes an easy to do every day habit. This helps hydration, saves money and ultimately protects our environment from excessive plastic bottle waste.

Our aim is to substantially reduce the amount of, and dependence on, consuming our drinking water in single use plastic bottles which alongside their hard plastic tops more then often end up littering our streets, waterways, beaches, coastlines and seas.

Microplastic ingestion can occur by both humans and marine life sometimes with known physical consequence, sometimes with yet to be know consequences due to bioaccumulation over the long term.

Ireland has some of the highest quality tap drinking water in the world which we pay for through water charges in our general taxation from 2017. We have some of the least quantities of publically available drinking water taps in our streets and parks of any country in Europe making us with no choice but to be wholly dependant on the frequent buying of water from a single use non biodegrable plastic bottle.

How does it work?

You can use Refill.ie to locate publically available dinking water taps and to find our voluntary participating partner businesses which include cafes, bars, shops, restaurants, galleries, museums, barbers, dentists, tourist informaton booths, surgeries and other outlets who happily display the Refill.ie sticker in their windows. This invites us all to refill our own reusable water bottle with simple hydrating Irish tap water for FREE, no quibbles and no questions asked.

Typically a drinking water refill is requested to go after finishing your coffee, meal, haircut, bike fix, shopping or local service appointment. Simply request it from any staff member and our participating partners will be happy to oblige you - Another plastic bottle prevented reaching our environment.

Just one thing - we do ask people to kindly respect that lots of our voluntary participating partners are private commercial business's who are providing this FREE service through genuine goodwill and a commitment to the Irish environment and peoples health, and that support is reciprocated when we can.
