You helped us campaign for Deposit Return Schemes (DRS). But why are they important? DRS expert Clarissa Morawski is here to answer some FAQs about the scheme.

Clarissa Morawski is CEO of an organisation called Reloop.

Reloop works at the intersection of governments, industry stakeholders and NGOs who share a common vision of a successful circular economy. Their mission and values are focused on building a world free of pollution, where resources remain resources.

The date for the DRS to go live in Scotland is now August 2023. With Scotland’s DRS having been delayed, and different schemes launching for different parts of the UK at different times, we thought we would ask Clarissa to help break it down for us.
