The Ocean Recovery Alliance, Hong Kong, and other organizers of the Plasticity Forums have posted a video soliciting support for a worldwide “bottle bill” (deposit and collection scheme) to boost the recycling rate of plastic bottles and other beverage containers.

The video uses footage from Hong Kong and conversational clips from residents of that city to make the point that without the financial incentive of a bottle bill it has become too easy for governments to direct PET (polyethylene terephthalate) beverage bottles to landfills and incinerators and too easy for individuals to throw them on the ground or into the water.
