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 one hundred 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.


“The 2017 Edinburgh Coffee Festival became the UK’s first fully compostable coffee festival. This experience has given us, as organisers, some insight in to different recycling schemes. In our view the introduction of a national Deposit Return System will be a massive step forward in addressing the problem of plastic waste impacting on the environment and we are delighted to support the campaign.”
