This week the Scottish Daily Mail launched their Banish the Bottle campaign to call for the introduction of a deposit return system in Scotland. We are delighted to have their support, and looking forward to reading more from this campaign over the coming days and weeks.
Wednesday’s front page featured a shocking picture, alongside an explanation of the scale of the problem we are now facing due to discarded bottles.
Additional stories featured on pages 4,5,6 and 7, with an editorial comment on page 16.
Thursday, Day Two of the campaign, saw more front page coverage in support of deposit return systems. There was also coverage of our partners who specifically value the beauty and opportunities that can be found in the Scottish outdoors.

Today’s coverage led with a big article in favour of deposit return from Richard Lochhead MSP, the former Cabinet Secretary for the Environment, and a very blunt article by Jeremy Paxman!
