Have you got the bottle?

As part of our commitment to health, wellbeing and the environment, we have joined the Refill Cornwall campaign, whereby members of the public can call into Reception at Proper Cornish or Furniss to refill their water bottles with tap water. Currently less than 30% of people in the UK drink tap water in a reusable bottle, despite the fact we are lucky to have some of the best quality, free drinking water in the world. Refill makes refilling a reusable water bottle easy and more socially acceptable than buying a single-use plastic drinks bottle. If just one in ten Brits refilled once a week, we’d have 340 million less plastic bottles in circulation and help to prevent the plastic pollution from entering our rivers and seas.

We are committed to reducing the use of single use plastics, so we are delighted to have signed up for this scheme. We now appear on Refill Cornwall’s website, and stickers are displayed in our windows to promote that we are a Refill Cornwall Centre.
