Sea-Changers are thrilled to announce that the Sea-Changers Coastal Fountain Fund 2024 is open for applications. The fund, which began in 2020, is for organisations who want to install a water bottle refill station in a busy or environmentally important coastal location. Since the fund began, we have enabled over 30 fountains to be installed around the coasts of the British Isles and we 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 towards the purchase of one fountain. The closing date for applications is 23rd February 2024.  Full details on how to apply, lots of guidance and FAQs, and the full funding criteria can be found here (please scroll right down the web-page to see all the available information).

Finally, if you can help us to spread the word about the fund that would be fantastic. Just pass on this email or the link to our website page to anyone who you think may be interested.

Very best wishes,

The Sea-Changers Team
