We’ve seen the Scottish Government commit to a deposit return system (DRS). Right now, industry are lobbying ministers in an attempt to water down proposals for a DRS in England. We need to keep pressure on our politicians to make sure England does not get left behind.
SAS has been in Edinburgh consulting on the scope of the DRS system proposed for Scotland. This is a fantastic moment for our Message In a Bottle Campaign and we are confident that a UK-wide DRS scheme can become a reality.
We want to challenge the government to create the best system for England. This means extending the scheme to cover metal and glass drinks containers.
Please share our petition urging the government to take action.
Call on your MP to support Plastic Free Coastlines by getting his or her support for Parliament to ditch unnecessary single-use plastics. Details of our Plastic Free Parliament Campaign can be found here: www.plasticfreeparliament.co.uk
