New Refill and Go trails launch in Dacorum

We’ve released a series of new Refill and Go trails on the LoyalFree app for World Refill Day (Thursday 16 June 2022).

Check in to one of the businesses on any of the trails to refill your water bottle, use your reusable coffee cup or fill your own containers with kitchen staples or cleaning products for a chance to win one of six prizes. One entry is received for each check-in, and you can enter in all of the six trails across the borough. 

For a further chance to win, get an extra entry by sharing a picture of your refills and using the hashtag #RefillDacorum on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

The trail competition launches on World Refill Day and will run throughout Plastic Free July.

There are more than 130 Refill Stations at businesses in Dacorum, which offer free drinking water refills, hot drinks (some places offer discounts when using your own cup) and zero-waste shops, along with greengrocers, bakeries and even takeaway food offered in reusable lunch containers.

World Refill Day is a wonderful chance to celebrate the Refill Revolution and shine a light on a simple behaviour change that can make a significant difference in the fight against plastic waste.

Graham Barrett, our Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood Services, said: “We would like to encourage residents to explore and support local businesses who are offering this brilliant refill service. Our first Dacorum Refill and Go trails are now live on the LoyalFree app and it is a fun and interactive way to discover some brilliant businesses who are supporting the Refill Revolution.”

Download the LoyalFree app from its website or scan the QR code on the posters in the shop windows. Once you're in the app, head to the trails section and search for "Dacorum Refill and Go Trail".
