CPRE – The countryside charity
Our countryside is littered with discarded, single-use drinks bottles and cans. They harm wildlife, pollute our waterways and spoil the beauty of nature.
And it’s completely unnecessary.
We’ve been calling for the solution for more than a decade – a simple system that prevents the littering of drinks containers and ensures recycling rates of over 90%: an all-in Deposit Return Scheme (DRS).
In May 2018, the government finally committed to putting a DRS in place. But almost three years later, that commitment seems to have been forgotten.
So, we’re sending a message in a bottle, already signed by thousands of us, directly to the Prime Minister.
We’re telling him to get a move on – will you add your name now?
