Sustainable food and drink group

The group’s focus is about food and drink that is good for us and good for the environment; food that does not cost the earth.

The group is interested in promoting a sustainable food and drink culture in the Bradford on Avon Community Area, and beyond. It’s a forum for exploring the issues, ideas and information, raising awareness, encouraging networking, and supporting environmentally friendly practice and initiatives in the food chain. We would like to be confident that all food and drink is produced to high environmental and ethical standards.

Calling all drinkers!

We know how important it is to carry a drink when you are out and about - at work, at school, walking or out for the day. Well, now there is a Refill Revolution taking place in Bradford on Avon and around the country to help you refill your water bottle

Climate Friendly BoA has persuaded over 19 businesses in the town to sign up to a new scheme allowing people to refill their water bottles on their premises, for no charge, rather than buy single use water bottles.  This will reduce plastic waste and litter in our countryside and rivers. There will be Refill stickers in the windows of most of the refill stations. 

Also a Refill app shows which businesses nearby are happy to fill water bottles. The app offers reward points when people fill their bottle, which can be redeemed to earn a stainless steel water bottle.  The app is free, so for IPhones look up ‘Refill’ and androids find ‘Refill Beta’ in the app stores. 

The sticker on the bottle was designed by Kitty from St Laurence School.

So drink with a clear conscience that you are helping to reduce plastic waste.  Thank you!
