DEPOSITHON

Roll up your sleeves for a DEPOSIT SYSTEM

The DEPOSITHON? It’s a cleanup marathon to call for the introduction of a deposit system in Belgium and more reusable packaging. The problem of littering in our streets, rivers and canals is known to all. 40% of it consists of discarded cans and plastic bottles. Fortunately there is an efficient solution to prevent them from ending up in our environment: a deposit system. When consumers buy a drink, they pay a small extra sum that they recover when they bring the packaging back to the store. This way the packaging gains value and will not be discarded in the nature. 80% of the Belgians are in favor of such a system, so what is preventing it? Several actors from the industry are against it and are pressuring the authorities. This is why we are collecting 15.000 signatures on paper to gain the right to a hearing at the parliament and demand that the three responsible governments cooperate together for the introduction of a deposit system and the use of more reusable packaging.
