“We look forward to becoming a very different kind of motor-related filling station, by inviting lots of people into our showroom to top up their reusable water bottles and help us tackle the fight against plastic pollution.”
James Watt, regional Refill coordinator, added: “It’s great to see businesses like Paul Rigby Stourbridge getting behind the Refill Revolution as well as looking more widely at the positive actions they can take to remove single-use plastic from their showroom.
