We are a community of responsible travelers, conscious locals and mindful business owners who take action against plastic waste.
We offer a convenient alternative to disposable plastic bottles. Our dream is a world without a single-use plastic item and we decided to focus on bottles since water is human beings' most needed element.
RefillMyBottle was initiated in Bali - a highly and increasingly touristic island where over 6 million disposable plastic bottles are used and discarded every month in Bali alone.
The lack of waste management systems means that these water bottles end up in landfills, the ocean, or are burned which creates toxic fumes. The problem definitely needs to be tackled at the source by reducing consumption of plastic water bottles. A group of sustainable businesses in Bali came up with the simple idea of providing access to drinking water to all who need it - without having to buy a plastic water bottle. They created RefillMyBottle.
RefillMyBottle has grown significantly. South-East Asian countries - but not only - facing the same issue joined us in the fight against plastic waste, and local Refill Ambassadors who know their environment better than anyone, work to build a community of RefillStations at their local level.
About 1000 RefillStations are now available in more than 9 countries.
