National refill day 2019

Wednesday 19 June is National Refill Day and the Library of Birmingham is delighted to open its new Water Refill Station.

Refill Station

The average person in the UK will use 150 plastic water bottles every year. If just one in ten Brits refilled once a week, we’d have 340 million less plastic bottles a year in circulation.

The library now has a Refill Station where water bottles can be refilled free of charge, thus helping to reduce the use of plastic. The station can be found on the Mid-Lower Ground Floor in the 'Reserved Items' alcove at the bottom of the first set of escalators.

Save money, stay hydrated and prevent plastic pollution at source by using the free Refill app on the go.
