Environment secretary Michael Gove recently announced a money-back scheme on plastic, glass bottles and metal cans which has pleased the Marine Preservation Society (MSC).

The consultation on the scheme will begin shortly on how it might work but the hope is that when it goes ahead it will lead to a big reducation in waste.  Plastic drink bottles, caps, lids and plastic on the go food waste consistently feature in the top ten litter types on UK beaches.

The MSC are are demanding that big fast food chains replace plastic items with fully compstable alternatives.
