Those of you who live in the UK are (obviously) very welcome to read that email and sign the petition. Thanks in advance :-)
Plastic bottles are littering our high streets, parks and beaches. They don’t rot, so they end up clogging up landfill sites and the sea. 
Right now, the government is drawing up a plan to tackle litter in Britain.  And there’s a simple solution. They’re considering starting a bottle deposit scheme: 10p is added to the price of a drink and if you return the bottle you get the money back. It would mean that millions of bottles would get recycled.
But they haven’t made up their mind yet, and sugary drinks company lobbyists are pushing hard to get them to drop the idea.  A huge petition would prove to the government the public supports it, and could convince them to introduce the scheme.
