Public pressure has worked before. In 2018, our campaigning led to the then environment secretary Michael Gove, giving his support for an all-in DRS.
Since then, even big drinks producers like Coca-Cola have agreed that the scheme is the answer to our litter problem.
But now the government has released another, worrying consultation.
Not only are they delaying the scheme until the end of 2024 at the earliest, but they’re also still considering a half-hearted design that will set the system up to fail.
We can’t let this happen.
Together we can make this a priority again with a message straight to our decision-makers: don’t dilute or delay a Deposit Return Scheme.
Join us now for one last push.
