Refill Revolution Comes To Worcester

15 January 2019

Severn Trent Water are supporting national charity 'City to Sea' in reducing the number of plastic bottles used across the UK. The idea is that people can use their own water bottles and refill them at a number of participating cafes, pubs and restaurants. The refill locations show their support for the scheme by displaying a window sticker and having their business promoted on an app. A number of the larger chain outlets have already signed up. Today (Monday 14th January) Green Party Councillor Louis Stephen joined other volunteers with the aim of talking to smaller, independent shops in the city to encourage them to now sign up.

Louis said, "I was really pleased with the take-up and support given by local businesses. Hopefully we are begging to now see the back of the fashion to buy bottled water. There is nothing wrong with tap water - bottled water is expensive and waste of resources. This scheme will hopefully support our city centre businesses by encouraging new customer footfall and ultimately increase their business takings."

Petition: Cycle parking at Worcester City Museum

https://www.change.org/p/worcestershire-county-council-cycle-parking-at-worcester-city-museum

Worcester City Museum has no public cycle parking. The City Museum is situated on a cycle lane. Cycle parking would mean that City Museum visitors can make sustainable transport choices and help ease the City's traffic congestion.
