    Would the national soft drink vendors (Coke, Pepsi, Aramark, etc.) have any
    data on the percentage or amounts that they sell in offices (as opposed to
    retail, schools, hospitals, cafeterias, public sites and so on) or perhaps
    on the amounts of fountain beverages vs. single-serve containers? I know
    that wouldn't capture the drinks people bring from home.
    Just a random thought....

    Dear Greenyes,

    About three weeks ago, I asked if anyone know tonnage per capita on
    beverage container ( beverage) consumption while people work in their
    offices. Many responded to my request and said that I should contact
    the DOC. The DOC told me that they do not have such figures. I do
    not know where else to contact............Please give me some
    suggestions.

    Thank you in advance.

    Kae
