Introduce a bottle deposit scheme!
The Kiwi Bottle Drive team delivered our petition to Parliament on December 2nd, 2018.
We handed over our petition, signed by 15,450 Kiwis (including offline signatures), to Green MP Chlöe Swarbrick with the support of her Parliamentary colleagues MP Gareth Hughes and Minister Eugenie Sage.
Minister Sage announced she has asked her team from the Ministry for Environment to look into the feasibility of getting a bottle deposit scheme for Aotearoa, which is a great next step.
Our role now is to hold the government to account and ensure work is done on this.
We will also be presenting to a select committee in 2019 about why we want to get a bottle deposit scheme here. We'll be in touch with next steps!
