    Background: In Britain on Saturday (October 30), a protest with a difference -- when about 150 anti-pollution demonstrators dumped thousands of nonreturnable bottles on the doorstep of a company promoting the sale of the bottles. The company is Cadbury-Schweppes, which manufactures soft drinks and sells them in disposable bottles. In the past, the drinks were sold in returnable bottles on which a deposit was charged -- so ensuring that a large number would be 'sold' back to the company for further use.

    There have been increasing protests about non-returnable bottles littering the towns and countryside of Britain, and Saturday's protest -- shown in this film -- was claimed by the demonstrators to be a stepping-up of the campaign to try and persuade the company to use returnable bottles once more.
