Located in West Yorkshire, Leeds has the second highest population for a local authority after London. With the River Aire running through its center, and the Yorkshire Dales National Park on its doorstep, Leeds is a city connected to the environment.
A vision for Leeds
Leeds have made a ‘Vision for Leeds’ project that aims to help Leeds become a sustainable economy by 2030. Leeds was one of the first cities to declare a climate emergency, iterating how passionate our community is to help save our planet. Leeds are committed to become a carbon neutral city by 2030, and Refill is doing whatever it can do to make sure that this happens!
If you’re looking to start a Refill Scheme, we’ve got a guide to help you get started.
Who is behind the Scheme?
Local Champions Beth Eaton and Joe Gribbin and committed volunteers Erin McDwyer and Kako Shintani are part of our growing volunteer team who work on our communications, spotlighting Refill businesses, and work with residents, students and local businesses to normalise the use of reusable water bottles!
Everyone is open to join! If you have a passion for sustainability and want be proactive to make a change you will fit in amazing with our group! We would love volunteers to aid us in Action Days, Events and coming up with new ideas to help the scheme grow in Leeds!
Getting involved is easy!
