About Us

“Water is a human right. To the extent one has the right to live, one has the right to water”

RefillMyBottle is an online map that identifies all the places – be it a cafe, resort, museum, or shop – where refillers could walk in and fill up their bottle with clean drinkable water for free or a minimum fee.

We are a community of responsible travellers, conscious locals and mindful business owners who take action against plastic waste.

We offer a simple alternative to buying bottled water and our goal is to reduce the number of single-use plastic bottles used unnecessarily throughout the world.


Our community was founded initially in Bali – an island that tourism has impacted in myriad ways. Over 6 million disposable plastic bottles are used and discarded every month in Bali alone.


The lack of waste management systems means that these water bottles end up in landfills, the ocean, or are burned which creates toxic fumes. It’s clear that the problem needs to be tackled at the source by reducing the consumption of plastic water bottles.


So, the question arises – without buying water out of a plastic bottle, how do we ensure access to clean drinking water for locals and tourists alike? A group of sustainable businesses in Bali came up with the simple idea of providing access to drinking water to all who need it – without having to buy a plastic water bottle. They created RefillMyBottle.


Since its initial conception, RefillMyBottle has grown significantly. Neighbouring countries facing the same issue joined us in the fight against plastic waste, and local Refill Ambassadors who know their environment better than anyone, work to establish refill stations in their own communities.

Refills are now available at over 4,000 locations across Southeast Asia and other countries.







One refill at a time.









RAFI PAPAZIAN – Owner of Monsieur Spoon

“I loved the project RefillMyBottle from the start. In my shops from the beginning I offered free water to all guests, and the idea to open it to everyone for little or no money or donation was instantly attractive. The Idea of being part of a community spending energy to do something for our planet, the idea of saying it loud through a collective brand was exactly what had to be done. Great job RefillMyBottle!”

QUYEN TRAN – Owner of The Organik House

“The Organik House is so excited to join the great initiative of RefillMyBottle. Being a ‘NO Plastic’ restaurant in Saigon from the day we opened, we are doing our best to share ideas, encourage others to join practice and to offer travellers an alternative option to so many other places. We are proud to be part of this movement and will feel blessed when people come to refill their bottles in our restaurant. If we work together, I really believe we can have a much less plastic world.”

INY – Owner of Royal Saigon Restaurant

“We are happy and excited to be part of the RefillMyBottle initiative. This is a great way to motivate people to reduce the consumption of plastic bottles for both locals and tourists. Vietnam is a beautiful country and we are eager to spread the word amongst our guests to help Vietnam become plastic-free. Through the app, we are able to meet like-minded people visiting our restaurant and they are happy to be part of this as much as us. Go RefillMyBottle!”

SIAN WILLIAMS – Local Refill Ambassador – Gili Eco Trust, Gili Trawangan

``Every month we collect, process, and recycle huge quantities of single-use plastic water bottles on Gili Trawangan. Unfortunately, we don't catch all of them, some end up in the dump and others in the sea. RefillMyBottle is a simple yet very effective campaign reducing the use of plastic water bottles consumed on Gili T, whilst creating a sustainable income for the local community and saving tourists money on buying countless new bottles!”
