About Us

The campaign is led by The Association for the Protection of Rural Scotland, and other organisations have quickly joined as partners. Right now, we have over eighty supporter organisations from business, the non-government and community sectors, including the Marine Conservation Society, Changeworks Recycling, Triathlon Scotland, Whitmuir Organics, Eco Congregations, Cornelius Beers, Friends of the Earth Scotland, WWF Scotland, Spokes, Surfers Against Sewage, Ramblers Scotland, the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and lots of others. Together, they represent over 300,000 people in Scotland.

Most importantly, we’re the voice of the 79% of people in Scotland who support introducing a deposit return system.



Our office is located at Dolphin House, 4 Hunter Square, Edinburgh, EH1 1QW.


“Jaw Brew is a family run brewery and prides itself in doing business the most eco-friendly way possible. We only use natural ingredients and our spent grain goes to feed pigs, waste hops are used as garden mulch and we even make a beer out of unsold bread as part of the ‘Circular Economy’ movement.

Having lived in Germany in an earlier life, we have experienced the benefits and simplicity of being able to re-use bottles of all types. When we set up our brewery in 2014, we collaborated on a research project with Strathclyde University to look into the possibility of our re-using the bottles we fill and are frustrated that the infrastructure to do so in Scotland does not yet exist.

We would be delighted to be part of a deposit return system and think this should be an industry-wide initiative. Any help we can give to make this happen would be willingly given.”.
