    Yea! Hurray. Lets cancel the boycot right away and give Coke a big advertising
    award.
    Coke has always kept their product in bottles, and they look just like the ones
    that used to be returnable
    for refund, but of course no longer are. Less than 1% of their product I'd
    guess, but does anyone know for
    certain?

    Subject: [GRRN] Coke is back in glass

    I noticed yesterday in the WSJ that Coca Cola is returning to glass
    bottles to rejuventae its old image--the bottles will be the same green
    glass variety that Coke always used in its "Classic" look.

    For all the uproar over Coke going to plastic, one would think the
    environmental community would cheer this development. But maybe this good
    news would get in the way of organizing yet another boycott, etc.
