We were thrilled to deliver our petition; now the UK’s largest calling for a deposit return system, to 10 Downing Street this week, alongside campaigners from 38 Degrees.
Following the submission of the petition, we had a very positive meeting in 10 Downing Street to discuss the growing economic and environmental evidence to support a UK-wide deposit return system. We hope that the Prime Minister will now be bold enough to respond to the overwhelming public support for a system and commit to a timetable to introduce one at the earliest opportunity.
We’re also delighted that the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon MSP, recently led the way to announce Scotland’s commitment to a deposit return system. This is already a huge step forward in our campaign to rid our oceans of plastic pollution.
Thanks for your support!
