Re: [GreenYes] Plastic Beer Bottles
Off the top of my head the two best starting points would be these sites -
both for their online content and offline contacts:

Plastic Redesign Project - especially consult their publications list.
http://www.plasticredesign.org/

Grassroots Recycling Network - select link for Campaigns for Plastic Beer
Bottle Page link
http://www.grrn.org/
