Refill Revolution

By the end of 2019, we will have installed ten water fountains across Bristol where you can refill your trusty bottle for free.

By using them, you’ll help us save 50 miles worth of plastic bottle waste and half a million pounds each year versus bottled water!

Countin' the fountains

Before we see 2019 out, there will have ten refill fountains dotted around busy parts of Bristol!

Back in 2015, we launched our first water fountains in Millennium Square and Queen Square, which have saved more than half a million plastic bottles to date.

We are now proud to announce, in collaboration with Bristol City Council, the launch of eight new refill fountains, the first of which will be installed on the College Green on Wednesday 19 June – National Refill Day.

We will be announcing the dates our new fountains will be installed over the coming months.

In memory: The Jennings Project

Ali Jennings, our former Head of Communications, was a hugely passionate and inspirational member of Bristol Water.

Ali spent much of her time thinking about how we could better the community and pioneered the Bristol Water Bar and our Water Fountains.

Sadly, Ali passed away in 2018. We are extremely proud to carry out the project in her legacy and Ali’s signature sits proudly on every new water fountain.

Back the tap!

Five reasons to think about what you drink


Bristolians are using 150 times more plastic than in the 70s (source: Bristol Waste)


Tap water is about a thousand times cheaper than bottled water


In blind taste tests, participants actually preferred the taste of tap water to bottled water


It takes twice as much water to make a plastic bottle than it does to refill it


It's the healthiest thing you can drink. In fact, if you drank a popular fizzy bottled drink every day instead, you'd consume 19 and a half bags of sugar over the year.
