Maybe better if we went back to glass bottles?
The Coca-Cola Bottle – Richard Broom Photography
We have that same ‘pop’ here too, as we call it in the Midwest.
The cans I see most often just lying around everywhere are Red Bull cans. Not unusual to see them lying on the ground within a few metres of a litter bin. When I was a youngster, littering was a serious offence – often leading to a ‘clip around the ear hole!’
People are pigs today! There are face masks on the ground today, the new cigarette butt. Stupid.
I’m old enough to remember a time before canned drinks. Drinks came in glass bottles and, when you took the empty bottle (washed of course) back to the shop, they would return a small deposit. This scheme was an incentive for us youngsters to go out and volunteer to take empty bottles back to the shop and earn a few pennies. Perhaps we should get back to that kind of scheme. I don’t expect we will, I think the drinks manufacturers like the throw-away idea. It saves them both time and money. Such a waste.
