German street paper raises money for vendors through bottle recycling scheme

 INSP 16 May 2019

German street paper TagesSatz has raised more than €10,000 in the last year through a scheme that encourages supermarket customers to donate their refunds from recycling bottles. By placing bright red collection boxes next to popular bottle-recycling machines in local supermarkets, TagesSatz has brought in the money it needs to provide essential support for the paper’s team. INSP learns how the bottle recycling scheme benefits street paper vendors. (522 Words) - By Alison Gilchrist
