Bingham deli backs refill scheme
A scheme which encourages people to refill reusable bottles to reduce single plastic is gaining momentum. One such environmentally-minded outlet to sign up to ‘Refill Rushcliffe’ is the Rose & May Deli in Bingham.
Volunteer Ami Harrison is among those helping to introduce the scheme at more sites across the Bingham area.
Ami was joined on a recent trip to the town by leader of Rushcliffe Borough Council Simon Robinson and Bingham West councillors Couns Francis Purdue-Horan and John Stockwood, where they met deli owner Ian Turner.
Coun Robinson said: “A thank you to all businesses who are taking their environmental responsibilities seriously and joining the scheme. Some are even proudly stating they are completely plastic free which highlights the true spirit of what can be achieved when we all assess our plastic usage.”
He went on to praise volunteers such as Ami for their help.
Ami said: “I am sure as the warmer days arrive in spring and summer the free water refills will only encourage more people to use the participating outlets and their reusable cups.”
