Zero waste refill | The Ark | Haverfordwest | Pembrokeshire

Zero Waste Refill

Did you know over 60% of UK household plastic waste is from bottles such as drinks, milk and toiletries and each year in the UK, 13 billion plastic bottles are used and only 58% recycled.

Check out the short film we made to understand why you should care about this and how refill can help change your buying behaviour. Using a refill station is considerably cheaper than buying a new bottle every time AND it helps you do your bit for the environment by reducing the use of single-use plastic.
