New Web Series on Benefits of Deposit Return

Retorna, a Spanish NGO and a member of Reloop, has long been advocating for ambitious legislation to avoid millions of single-use beverage containers from ending up in landfills or littered in the environment. One of the ways it seeks to do this is by encouraging local governments to implement deposit-return schemes.

In cooperation with Nikotxan, Retorna published a YouTube web series called “Back to the Future” to raise awareness about the marine litter problem and how deposit-return can help address this issue, in addition to many other benefits. In the web series, which consists of 5 episodes, the grandfather and Martin, his grandson, travel through time to discover how to return bottles and cans to the store. They show how this simple habit can have many benefits.
