The campaign calls on Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England to introduce a Deposit Return System on plastic bottles and other single use drinks containers.
Show your support by signing the Message In A Bottle petition! We will deliver the petition to the Protect Our Waves All Party Parliamentary Group and the devolved Parliaments in summer 2017.
Introducing a small economic incentive (10-20p deposit) will be incredibly effective in ensuring consumers keep their single-use plastic bottles and drinks containers in the recycling economy rather than the environment. (The full deposit is returned to the consumer when they return the bottle to the readily available return facilities placed in shops and public spaces.)
After signing the petition, please make the effort to write to your elected representative in your parliament calling for a Deposit Return System to be included in the National Litter Strategy. The Message In A Bottle website has a helpful guide on how to structure the letter to your elected official.
The campaign also contains several social media actions that we also need your support on.
