“Wrzucam. Nie wyrzucam!” campaign
The Wrzucam. Nie wyrzucam campaign (“Throw it, don’t throw it away”), which has been running since mid-2019, aims to familiarise the public with the mechanisms of the deposit return system (DRS), which would include glass, metal and plastic beverage packaging.
Research conducted as part of the project revealed that almost 90% of Poles were in favour of a mandatory deposit system for single-use and reusable beverage packaging. Over 60% of respondents believed that the deposit system could be extended to other food packaging.
As part of the campaign, over 10,000 people signed a petition that was submitted to the Polish Minister of Climate. Activities continue within a working group at the Ministry of Climate, whose aim is to develop solutions in the field of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), including the deposit system.
