Refillable Beverage Containers-The Return of a Good Idea?
Here's a glimpse of a blog post from "Zero Waste Europe" about this very idea:

Deposits are a sum of money we give as a security for an item acquired for temporary use, once we give back the item we get back the money. In the last decades and years, this has changed; the trend goes towards throw-away one-way packaging. This is a very inefficient way of using resources."
