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
Drop off clothes at 11.00 when you will receive a token/s for each item of clothing.
Come back between 12 and 2 and exchange your token/s for an item of clothing.
Extra tokens can be bought for £1
