Poll: Do you like the new tethered bottle caps?

You may have noticed a change to your bottle caps recently – you are not alone.

THE EU IS once again cracking down on single-use plastic, and this time it’s bottle caps.

They’ve brought in a new law which means companies must change the design of plastic caps, so both the cap and bottle are attached and can be discarded together.

All plastic tops and lids must be attached from 3 July, but you may have already come across the new ‘tethered’ caps on your drink bottles.

So today we want to know: Do you like the new tethered bottle caps?

Poll Results:

No (13011)
Yes (4388)
No interest, no opinion (1009)
