Boot The Bottle is a national public awareness campaign to accelerate the transition away from single-use plastics and towards reuse systems.
Join Pat Kane Sustainability Strategy, speaker, writer and founder of reuzi.ie with Refill Ireland as they Pledge to #BootTheBottle
“The entire lifecycle of a single-use plastic bottle uses fossil fuels, contributes to global warming and generates pollution. It really is time we push against the rising landfill piles of disposable plastic – and that, of course, includes single-use plastic bottles and cups… We can all do better – by simply finding a reusable bottle and / or a cup that suits our lifestyle, vibe and needs! By going for reusable bottles and cups, we can reduce the number of carbon emissions entering our atmosphere, and while making our planet greener, we will probably save money too. Fill your bottle and / or your cup at the start of the day and refill it as the day goes by… Use refill.ie map to find a refill spot near you!”

Water for Waterford
Waterford is leading the way but who is next?
Both City & County is pushing forward in the race to reduce single-use pollution with the entire country as they pledge to #BootTheBottle.
Refill Ireland has awarded five local businesses to become Refill Hubs with newly installed public water stations that offer everyone hydration on the go for free as they refill with their reusable water bottles. The Coach House Coffee on the Greenway, Cove Stores in Tramore, Activate in Ardkeen, CC Creatives on Meagher’s Quay and GROW HQ on the Dunmore Road are the latest hubs to join the national Refill network for the public to access waste free hydration whilst out and about.
Previous Refill Hub awardee Simon Tiptaft in the Quay Coop, Cork, shares “ It’s bringing people into our store which is great. So it’s a win, win situation for everyone really!”
Refill Ireland want to hear from your county and your business, are you ready to join us and pledge to #BootTheBottle?
