Endorsement Form for Entities
Please use this form to register the support of an entity (e.g., a business, an organization, a government body, etc.) for a 5-cent refundable deposit on glass, plastic and aluminum beverage containers sold in Tennessee, with returns to redemption centers, similar or identical to the proposed legislation discussed elsewhere on this website.
How this information will be used:
- Unless they request anonymity, endorsers will be listed in the appropriate "constituency" block on our Supporters page. Right now, there are just four constituencies: Individuals, Commerce, Government and Organizations. As the number of endorsements grows, we hope to add subcategories—perhaps agriculture and farming, schools and colleges, tourism and hospitality, hunting and fishing, sports and recreation, conservation and environment—and oh so many more. You can help by inviting every Tennessean and every Tennessee entity you know to fill out an endorsement form, and that includes non-Tennessee-based entities that have a plant, a presence or a stake in Tennessee's sustainable future.
- Endorsement lists will be shared with legislators whose votes may (and indeed should) turn on knowing how many of their fellow Tennesseans support a carefully crafted deposit-return system for the Volunteer State.
Feel free to print out hard copies of endorsement forms (you might also print out a sample copy of the TennCan brochure) and let folks sign on the spot. To submit a hard copy, simply take a picture of the completed form with your smartphone and e-mail it to email@example.com, or send via text message to (615) 294-2651.
