We've been beavering away recently on the "free water refill scheme" again and have now met a wonderful lady by the name of Anne Cuthbertson who has taken the bull by the horns and has set up a new facebook group to co-ordinate the scheme.
Annes new group is called "Wharfedale Tackles Plastic". She and her team have managed to get Yorkshire Water on board, which is a great achievement and will help drive this forwards. Pop over and have a look at:
https://www.facebook.com/WharfedaleTP. like the page and lend your support to this superb cause.
Already the water refill idea is catching on throughout Ilkley with many businesses signing up to enable you to refill your water bottle for free while walking round town.
Our hope is that this will dramatically redude the plastic waste we see lying around our beautiful countryside and get this plastic into recycling where it belongs instead of littering the countryside and ending up choking our rivers and seas and killing wildlife.
|Look for the "FREE WATER REFILL" logo on shop doors and windows and drop in to refill your bottle.|
