    Right now, the NSW government is deciding whether to support a 10c refundable depost on bottles and cans. Their backing would secure a domino effect for this vital reform to truly clean up Australia. Our state politicians need to hear from us that we want this reform to protect the environment and create jobs in resource recovery and a new income scheme for charities. Can you and your church help by making your voice heard, and participating in a letter writing drive to the Premier and/or Environment Minister?
