Refill Your Bottle is a project initiated by a campaign in Bali. The core concept behind this initiative is the collective effort of members engaging in a network designed to refill water for every visitor, eliminating the need for single-use plastic bottles.
How do we make it to the Office?
Eviva Tour Team has been participating in this initiative since 2018. One of our core values at Eviva Tour Team is being responsible. Thus, the Eviva Team is delighted and open to contributing to minimizing plastic waste and sharing water resources with others.
Our office is located 1.3 kilometers away from Hoan Kiem Lake and Hanoi Old Quarter. You can walk by or drop us a message on our Facebook page or Instagram, and we’ll guide you to our location and warmly welcome you to our place.

About Refill Your Bottle Project
It’s not just us, there are many other organizations joining hands in this sharing initiative. By downloading the Refill My Bottle app and opening the map, you can easily find Free Refill Stations nearby throughout Hanoi, Vietnam, and various other countries.
Refill My Bottle originated from a campaign in Bali, where a group of sustainable businesses on the island collaborated to establish a network of water refill stations, known as Refill Bali.
This initiative gradually gained acceptance within the island community and spread to neighboring islands and countries, subsequently being renamed Refill My Bottle. The Refill My Bottle movement developed a user-friendly map application with the addresses of the water refill stations.
To date, there are 4373 water refill points across many countries worldwide, saving approximately 2226 plastic bottles. The project has been deployed in 37 countries.
The project is a global movement to combat plastic waste by establishing water refill stations and promoting reusable bottles. You can contribute to this project either as a customer refilling your bottle or by registering to become an organization implementing the refill project.

As someone who comes to refill, you just need to search for refill points near your location and then go there. At the water refill facilities, there will be posters and signs with the project name Refill Your Bottle. You can also track your refill by scanning this QR code and filling out the form.
