Brecon Beacons joins the Refill Scheme
We’re delighted to announce the Brecon Beacons has joined the Refill Scheme, the first destination in Wales to do so.
What is the Refill Scheme?Refill is a national, practical tap water campaign which allows you to refill your own water bottle with free tap water at refill stations across the UK.
Refill is currently happening around the UK – have a look here to see a list of current Refill schemes!
How does it work?
Participating hotels, attractions, cafes, bars, restaurants, banks, galleries, museums and other businesses simply put a sticker in their window – alerting passers-by to the fact they’re welcome to come on in and fill up their bottle – for free! Download the free Refill rewards app to see where you can Refill on the go, or add new places to Refill yourself!
We already have over 40 businesses signed up in the Brecon Beacons – so check out where they are on the app and look out for the window stickers – when out and about our National Park.
Why carry a bottle with you?Single-use plastic bottles are expensive to produce, use up valuable natural resources to make and transport and create mountains and mountains of waste once we’ve gulped down the contents. And recycling’s not the answer either, according to the latest figures from recyclenow.com here in the UK an estimated 11,000 plastic bottles a MINUTE are either ending up in landfill or as litter, which will too often make its way into our waterways and out to sea.

By buying and using a reusable water bottle you will also save yourself a small fortune and they often pay for themselves within a week going on to save you money with every free Refill from then on!
