Bottle Bill for North Carolina sign now

This petition should serve as notice to all lawmakers that the state of North Carolina is in dire need of a Bottle Bill. This Bottle Bill would require all glass and plastic bottles, and aluminum cans to carry a deposit, and be returnable. Several other states currently have such laws, and as a result do not have the severe litter problems that N.C. does. In 2003 over 192,000 volunteers across the state worked with N.C. Big Sweep in collecting 12,673 glass bottles, 13,876 plastic bottles (2 liter or smaller), and 13,472 aluminum cans from in and around our waterways. That is just a drop in the bucket of the litter that destroys the beauty of our state and harms our precious environment.

There is a growing contingent of residents who have become concerned about the lack of leadership in solving this immense problem. We will continue to work to educate the public, clean our beaches, waterways, and roadways, but the problem is larger than even 192,000 volunteers can tackle. As you drive down the road or paddle down the creek, look around and imagine how it would look without all the bottles and cans. WE NEED OUR LAWMAKERS TO SUPPORT OUR ENVIRONMENT! This is just the beginning. We will not rest until we have your support and commitment.
