PAUL RIGBY STOURBRIDGE SUPPORTING SUSTAINABILITY
We are now an official 'Refill' station
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. To download the app and find out more go to refill.org.uk.
Andy Kirkham, general sales manager at Paul Rigby Stourbridge, said: “Reducing the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans is incredibly important to 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.”
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.
“We’re sure they can be an inspiration to other car retailers and lead the way as an example of how to reduce their plastic consumption and also help customers fill their up their reusable water bottles for free.”

THE DAY THE OCEAN WENT AWAY
Working with Volvo isn't always about selling cars. As a human-centric car company, we are a brand for people who care about other people and the world in which we live. This is at the core of our business and of our approach to sustainability.
Here at Paul Rigby Ltd we are passionate about supporting Volvo's, industry leading, ambitions when it comes to sustainability.
Oscar Lumley and Trevor Greaves from Paul Rigby Stourbridge, arranged a visit to Glynne Primary school, to talk about plastic pollution and to introduce the new book released by Volvo; The Day the Ocean Went Away.
"As soon as we walked into the class room, a blue sea of year 4 children came running up to us, showing off pencil cases and pots made from plastic bottles they had been creating all day. Myself and Trevor were overwhelmed with the enthusiasm and energy! Once the very excitable 8 and 9 year olds were settled, Trevor began talking about how he pretty much never uses his black bin at home. Everything is either recycled, composted or turned into plastic eco bricks.
After this we took groups of children outside where we had a very special V90 Ocean Race and an XC40 parked. We asked the children to go and identify parts made from recycled plastic, to show them what can be achieved by putting their bottles in the correct bin. We'd like to say a huge thank you to the staff of Glynne Primary School and also the Children of year 4, for being so welcoming and enthusiastic. We hope our message was heard and we look forward to doing more projects in the future!"
