RE: [GreenYes] recycling plastic number 5's and 6's.
Thanks for your reply re: the unhopeful prospects for recycling #3 and
other plastics.  I figured as much, and for several years now have been
avoiding altogether purchasing anything packaged in #3; instead I refill
the same shampoo bottle, dish detergent bottle at my local Puget Consumers
Co-op.

However, I do have a garage full of plastic lids [typically #4] from
yogurt, cottage cheese, margerine, ice cream containers.  I will continue
to collect these for some future recycling opportunity, perhaps ultimately
resorting to starting my own frisbee company in my dotage [just kidding].

What a conundrum manufacturers present to those of us who can see beyond
the next ten minutes of consumption.  Heaven help us all, each and every
one.

Best regards,
