#Policy Part 2. Container Deposit Laws: the most efficient and effective way to recover materials!!! #PlasticFreeJuly . I picked up some #plasticfree#kombucha at the #farmersmarket this morning and I returned my empty bottle from last week, so they gave me my $3 deposit back. They will #reuse the bottle and I will have an incentive to buy from them again because it’s a #zerowaste, #circulareconomy system. #CorporateSocialResponsibility . States and countries with container deposit laws (aka #BottleBills) consistently recover more recyclable material (plastic bottles) and it’s all higher quality material because it’s outside of our municipal single-stream collection system (which can lend itself to contamination because of #wishcycling). . Because of the deposit, customers are likely to return the container to get their money back, which cuts down on litter in the environment. Furthermore, the deposits that are not redeemed can be used to support the collection system infrastructure (JOBS!!) and other #pollutionprevention projects.
