Advocating for Deposit Return Schemes in Portugal

Ocean Born Foundation Grant 2022

Every day in Portugal, four million plastic bottles are wasted every single day, with only 36% of beverage containers returned for recycling. We are sponsoring The Trash Traveler, an activist based in Portugal, as he cycles 3,000km across Portugal raising awareness and encouraging the public to sign the petition urging the Portuguese government to implement a deposit return scheme.
