Many of them end up in our oceans - killing marine life and threatening fragile ecosystems.
Deposit return schemes work by placing a small deposit on a plastic bottle, which you get back when you return it. The more bottles that are returned, the more can be re-used or recycled - reducing the amount that end up as litter, in our oceans and in landfill.
We need to take action to stem the flow of plastic into our oceans. Sign now to show your support for deposit return schemes across the UK.
