Sky News have this week launched a campaign that aims to inspire and encourage people to act now on the issue of marine litter. Their Ocean Rescue campaign began with the Plastic Tide documentary, that highlights the problem. They go on to show their support for deposit return systems and highlight celebrities such as Richard Branson and HRH, The Prince of Wales  who support their introduction in the United Kingdom.

This short video gives a great explanation of how deposit return systems work.

The campaign has already drawn widespread interest and highlighted active opposition to the introduction of a deposit return system from Coca-cola.
