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. At present, there are four constituencies: Individuals, Organizations, Commerce, Government and Media. As the number of endorsements grows, we may add subcategories, such as agriculture, education or hunting and fishing. 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 with a presence or stake in Tennessee's sustainable future.
- Endorsement lists will be shared with legislators whose votes may depend on how many of their constituents and 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 copy of the TennCan brochure). To submit a hard copy, simply take a picture of the completed form with your smartphone and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or text it to (615) 294-2651.
