Llantwit Major is proud to be the first town in Wales to be a part of the Refill scheme.
Jacquie Jenkins, owner of the Hair Studio, was eager to do something about plastic waste after her son reported seeing excessive plastic waste on a trip to Bali. Inspired also by TV’s Blue Planet II, Jacquie turned to social media to ask people of the town ‘How can we, as businesses, reduce plastic waste? Any ideas please?’
A fellow business owner suggested Refill so Jacquie did some research before contacting the Town Council who were thrilled to back the idea.
Llantwit Major is an old town which is steeped in Welsh history and was an ancient seat of learning for the Welsh saints. It is close to the Glamorgan Heritage Coast and attracts walkers, cyclists and surfers. The Refill scheme seemed like an ideal opportunity to help our visitors and local people stay hydrated without having to resort to single-use plastic bottles.
