This Wednesday (16 June) is World Refill Day, an initiative which is part of a global movement working to reduce plastic pollution.

The Positively Putney team have teamed up with Refill to help local businesses reduce the amount of plastic they produce.

It believes reducing single-use plastics helps everyone benefit from cleaner streets, rivers and oceans.

There are several shops and bars in Putney that are now official Refill Stations - simply take in your water bottle and they will top it up to keep you hydrated.

Positively Putney has also helped supply local bars and pubs with reusable cups to use instead of takeaway plastics to help reduce the amount of waste in Putney.

World Refill Day is a global public awareness campaign which calls on businesses, brands and governments to choose to reuse and help make single-use plastic a thing of the past.

Choosing to reuse, can save millions of pieces of plastic and help keep our environment, oceans, cities and communities plastic-free for the future.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
