Tell the government to take strong action on plastic pollution.
We've all seen the footage of turtles, seals and whales who've been choked, tangled or harmed by plastic pollution. A Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) can start tackling the problem.
5.5 billion plastic bottles go un-recycled every year in the UK alone - with many finding their way into our oceans or landfill.
But a DRS is a simple yet effective way of combating this: when you buy a drink you pay a tiny amount which you get back when you return the container. The container then gets reused or taken down to be recycled. Simple
But there's talk of a weak, watered down DRS that doesn't cover all drinks containers - thanks to corporate lobbyists not wanting to pay for their own waste.
So let's make sure protecting our natural world is the priority - not special interests.
Let the government know that you want a strong DRS that properly protects our natural world.
