Plastic bottle deposits

Every day in the UK, 35 million plastic bottles are used and discarded. Almost half of these are not recycled and many of them end up in our oceans – killing marine life and threatening fragile ecosystems.

Deposit return schemes work by placing a small deposit on a plastic bottle, which you get back when you return it.

The more bottles that are returned, the more can be re-used or recycled, reducing the amount that end up as litter, in our oceans and in landfill.

Here is a link to a petition by Greenpeace if you wish to get involved: https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/bottle-deposit-return-ef
