Despite plastic bottles being easily recyclable and collected nationally by local authorities still a staggering number wash up on our beaches and beaches around the world on a daily basis. Surfers Against Sewage have launched a really positive campaign to encourage the government to introduce a plastic bottle deposit scheme. They are making good progress with this and they need all the support they can get, especially from people like us who care so much about the issue of plastic waste.
Their web site is https://www.sas.org.uk/donate/ this is the donate page, which you may feel you would like to support. Financial support or not being engaged with what this group are doing is important and can help them make a difference. The 38% campaign is at https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/bring-back-bottle-deposits-to-stop-plastic-pollution-in-our-oceans-1
If they have success in getting a deposit scheme introduced by the government in the UK it will open the door to a conversation about plastic waste in the UK that will mark a step change in leadership around this issue.
