Growing social anxieties over climate change and its perceived imminent threat to the current status quo of 21st century luxury have resulted in a chorus in calls, particularly from younger demographics, for radical systemic change to America’s approach to environmental protection.  A tool on the path to better care for the environment may be found in the introduction of a State Container Deposit Law. Laws of this kind are already found in nearly a dozen states across America. While the specification of these laws range in deposit value and containers included, redemption of these recyclable materials would go a long way to increasing the tonnage of recycled material in Pennsylvania.This works through a system where the consumer pays a deposit, usually between 5 and 15 cents, that can be redeemed through the return of said bottles to a cooperating retailer. The proceeds from unclaimed deposits can be invested in a wide variety of programs to aid the public.
