Zero waste

Hands with gloves counting littered plastic bottles

We want to reduce waste, including harmful plastics and other single-use packaging, to enhance and protect our natural spaces and our climate.

Waste in our countryside harms our soils, rivers and oceans. Excessive and single-use packaging costs money to remove, destroy or recycle, and contributes to the climate emergency. It’s time for change.

We’re calling for a comprehensive deposit return system for all drinks containers, a commonly littered item, to increase recycling of these items to over 90%.
