Join #RefillDorset

Join the Refill revolution here in Dorset

We’ve teamed up with City to Sea to bring Dorset into the Refill Britain family. The Refill Britain project seeks to reduce the number of single-use plastic bottles which end up littering our parks and open spaces, our beaches and sea, by simply encouraging everyone to use refillable bottles instead. We’re looking for businesses to join the scheme. It’s free, and we’ll even give you free promotion.

All you need to do is agree to offer your customers free tapwater refills, and pop a sticker in your window to show it’s OK to ask. Want to join in?

Litter Free Business Award

Introducing our Business Award Scheme

Litter Free Coast and Sea has created this free award for all types of businesses along the Dorset and East Devon coast. We know how important clean beaches with high bathing water quality are to the local communities, tourism and the environment. That’s why by making simple changes, business can support and help create cleaner seas.


It’s Simple…

The checklist will take around 15-20 mins to complete. The options are straightforward and you may already have some of the features in place. By following the steps below or on the award pack you will receive an award, display material and be promoted to the public, Litter Free Coast and Sea members and our partners through a dedicated section on our website, e-newsletter and social media.



How it Works

Using the checklist, we’ve provided suggested actions for businesses to implement. Once you have decided on which options you would like to go for, someone from the  Litter Free Coast and Sea team will assess the changes. Some of the items include checking pipes and appliances for misconnections so that waste water is directed to sewage treatment and doesn’t end up going straight into our rivers and seas, installing fat traps in kitchen sinks or providing more bins for customers.


Who Can Join

It doesn’t matter if you are a business on the coast or further inland, you can still make a valuable difference to improving bathing water quality. We developed the award so that any business can join and get awarded. Whether you are a cafe, restaurant or bar, bed and breakfast, hotel, holiday park, campsite, beach rental/hire, visitor centre, shop or office, they can all play a part in reducing beach litter an pollution.

Said About the Award

“We love where we live and work and anything that keeps our coast clean and safe is worth doing. We think we’re quite environmentally aware but keen to see if there’s anything else we can do. We also think that it’s a really positive message to give to our customers.”
