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.

Comment

‘It is very important that people taking part in triathlons properly hydrate, but it is equally important that participants and race organisers reduce waste and recycle wherever possible. We even have a British rule, where if competitors are caught littering, they are instantly disqualified. We believe a deposit return scheme will further raise awareness of the importance of recycling, and will ultimately help to lessen our sport’s impact on the natural environment.’
