Refilling at Redfest

As part of Refill Bristol, Bristol Water popped up their pop-up water bar at Redfest. Which was a sizzling success on a scorcher of a Saturday!

We gave out free tap water all day, much to the relief of the thirsty crowd!

Redfest is a local festival, in a park I visit often to skate. I love this park, the vibe there is always friendly and welcoming. On this particular day it was transformed, for a local event I was surprised at the size (not sure why, this is Bristol, and Bristol doesn´t do things by halves!) there was so much going on, including some fantastic music!  Some of which I got to enjoy at the end of the day…

I´ve already spoken how amazing the water bar is at REDUCING single use plastics.

Reduce – let´s remember – is the 1st of the 3 R´s.

Not recycle – that comes in at number 3.

Lets spread the word… imagine if other water companies take it on and free – in both price and packaging – water becomes the norm at a festival… It may seam like a pipe dream (excuse the pun!) but that is exactly what Refill Bristol and Bristol Water are already doing!

Not sure how to Refill while on the move? Look out for this logo around Bristol, where you are welcomed to Refill your bottle. Not in Bristol? Just pop in a cafe, shop or any where and asked! I have for years and people really don´t mind.
