Over the next two weeks, state and federal governments will be preparing their positions on supporting a container deposit scheme (CDS), prior to the ministerial meeting on 24 August. We need to take action now!
Please, as a matter of urgency, send a letter to your Premier and Environment Minister Tony Burke seeking support for a national container deposit scheme along the low cost and efficient model proposed by the Boomerang Alliance.

Friends of the Earth Australia is largely supported by individual members and supporters, plus philanthropic funding.
In recent years, major donors have started to support our work – with incredible impacts on our work and effectiveness.
FoE prides itself on being a grassroots but nationally networked environmental organisation. It is also remarkably frugal, meaning that the vast majority of funds received go directly into campaigning. Any donations will go a long way and make a real difference to our ability to run effective and strategic campaigns.
Around the world, community groups have worked for years to draw attention to nanotechnology's health, environment, social and democratic challenges. Have our submissions and reports, consumer guides and industry surveys, blogs and opinion pieces, street theatre and protest actually influenced how this powerful new technology is governed or the direction of its development?
