Make refundable surcharges compulsory for all plastic drink bottles

This petition had 6 supporters


It is not realistic to expect companies manufacturing and retailing drink bottles to switch from using plastics back to glass, which was once the situation. In those days refunds were offered for returned empty bottles. If refunds became compulsory for plastic drink containers, then it is much more likely that the empties will end up back where they came from, rather than littering our cities, countrysides, waterways and oceans.
