Our Mission

For 15 years, we have built grassroots momentum to pass a 5¢ refundable container deposit in Tennessee. The urgent need for this bill has grown through the years, with daily findings about the health and environmental hazards of plastic pollution, and the open economic opportunities offered by the collapse of the Chinese post-consumer plastic market. The #TennCan Container Deposit (AKA “Bottle Bill”) will divert billions of single-use containers from landfills & our waterways into local businesses and non-profits. Our empties are full of opportunities!
