A pit-stop with a difference – Ray Chapman Motors Malton becomes free water-filling station

A car retailer in Malton has become a free water-bottle refill point for locals, in a bid to reduce plastic pollution.

Volvo retailer Ray Chapman Motors Malton, on Seven Street, has joined forces with Refill, a campaign that aims to prevent plastic pollution, by making it easier for people to reuse and refill their bottle instead of buying a new one.

The retailer is now listed as a filling station on the Refill app, which enables people to search for nearby places where they can refill their reusable bottles for free.

Duncan Chapman, Retailer Principal at Ray Chapman Motors Malton, said: “Reducing the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans is incredibly important to all of us.

“Our aim is to remove all single-use plastic from our showroom and find ways to encourage everyone to play their part in reducing plastic pollution. Joining forces with Refill is just one of the ways we can work towards this goal.

“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.”
