Welcome to #pledgeToRefill - can we count on your support?
Single-use plastic bottles, usually made from PET (polyethylene terephthalate), make up the largest proportion of plastic bottle waste in the UK but only 57% is collected for recycling*.
FRANK Water has pledged to stop selling bottled spring water in single-use plastic bottles.
To celebrate we've teamed up with friends and supporters for #PledgeToRefill and we need your help to really make it count. Whilst your pledge will help preserve our environment, our partners will donate £1 for every pledge (up to 1000) to our international safe water programmes, so those who don't have safe water now, will have soon.
1. Sign our pledge and commit to carrying a refillable bottle.
For each of the first 1000 pledges, one of our partners will donate £1!

2. Spread The Word – We Need As Many People As Possible To #PledgeToRefill.
Please tell your friends and family about your pledge and encourage them to sign up too.
3. Dig out a refillable bottle or cup from the back of your cupboard OR invest in one today.
4. Sign up to FRANK’s newsletter to stay in touch with the campaign.
Why should I refill?
Using a refillable water bottle is the best way to stay hydrated when you’re on the move. Single-use plastic bottles, usually made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), make up the largest proportion of plastic bottle waste in the UK but only 57% is collected for recycling*. The rest is sent to landfill or ends up as litter, often finding its way to waterways, posing a significant threat to wildlife. Our planet can’t sustain our current levels of disposable plastic consumption. We need to change the way we think.
