The work of CRI is vital, as deposit-refund programs are the most effective way to increase recycling, reduce litter, and reduce associated costs to towns and taxpayers. Plastic bottle and beverage container wasting is a disaster for the planet and the plastic in the ocean is getting into our food supply. Unfortunately, some beverage container lobbyists continue to fight bottle bills. CRI's research is imperative to counter the opposition, which are few in numbers, but large in dollars. These programs are in place all over the world. In the US, the ten states with bottle bills recycle more containers than the other 40 states combined!

Billions of beverage containers litter our streets, parks, and waterways or are landfilled every year. This is a huge loss of resources and potential green jobs. The most effective way to recycle containers is container deposit programs (known as bottle bills.) Where bottle bills exist, recycling rates are double or triple compared to areas without. In fact, the ten deposit states recycle more containers than the other 40 combined. Opponent lobbyists to bottle bills are strong and well funded, spending millions to defeat this most effective and citizen supported recycling program. The Container Recycling Institute provides information and supports bottle bill programs. It's one of the best organizations promoting recycling and anti litter issues. I've always been an avid recycler, but before I knew about CRI, I didn't understand the importance bottle bills have to recycling. The work of CRI is vital to continue this advocacy effort.

I have been connected to CRI for over 20 years as a leader and volunteer. The organization has always worked to remain above the fray and provide unbiased, fully documented information on recycling. The giant corporations who complain about CRI's product are all those who would enjoy financial gain from weaker recycling programs, and they have never offered credible rebuttals.

Fact based "resource recovery" education comes in many forms and flavors, and is often used to skew reality by biased selection. The Container Recycling Institute presents all of the facts about the recapture of spent beverage and water bottles, cans, and cartons in easily digestible format. These facts reveal that redemption or deposit systems and other public incentives increase collections by 300% without reducing product consumption or damaging curbside collections. The collected plastic, metal, and glass resources are "pure stream" and avoid costly mechanical sorting and contamination in their ultimate use in recycled products. We need more honesty in utilizing proven systems to reduce waste, energy consumption, nonrenewable resources, greenhouse gas emissions, and unrecovered recyclable resources.
