On my 2023 Windsurf Expedition Oslo-London, 2000 km, I will bring back English littered plastic bottles back to London, together with lessons learned about Deposit Return Systems in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands.
Oslo-London Surf Expedition
To get around deposits, beverage manufacturers are switching from plastic bottles to on-the-go beverage cartons. By doing so, they undermine a well-functioning deposit system and create more litter. That's why beverage cartons should also have a deposit.
Help us: send pictures of beverage cartons lying around with the Plastic Avengers app!
On-the-go food & drink packaging is often oversized, causing our trash bins to constantly overflow. Operation Overload captured this with 1999 photos of bulging trash cans. We must move toward less and smaller, collapsible containers!
