  • Sea-Changers Coastal Fund 2024 - Does your beach need a water fountain?

    Created: 04/01/2024
    News/Events Category: Funding and Finance


    Sea-Changers Coastal Fountain Fund 2024 is now open for applications.

    The fund, which began in 2020, has re-opened to applicants who want to install a water bottle refill station in a busy or environmentally important coastal location. Since the fund began, Sea-Changers has enabled over 30 fountains to be installed around the coasts of the British Isles and they can’t wait to see more popping up in 2024.

    The fund aims to tackle the increasing problem of plastic bottles accumulating in marine and coastal locations as they damage these environments and the species that call them home. The provision of these water refill stations can significantly reduce the numbers of non-reusable plastic drinks bottles found on our beaches.

    The fund is sponsored by the specialist international distribution and services group, Bunzl plc, who are supporting this work as part of their response to the plastic challenge. The issue remains widespread on UK's beaches despite the rising awareness around the dangers of single-use plastic.

    Each applicant can bid for up to £2,500 to fund the purchase of one fountain. Click here to find out how to apply, guidance and FAQs, and the full funding criteria.

    The closing date for applications is Friday 23 February 2024.
