[GreenYes] Glass
Glass is not losing "significant marketshare," has has been suggested on this 
listserv.  Domestic glass container shipments over the past five years are 
down less than one percent annually.  Much of this loss can be explained by 
the weakening demand for alcoholic beverages, given that more than 60 percent 
of glass production goes to this market.  It is more accurate to say that 
glass is a mature product.  However, it remains the favored package for many 
products, including premium beers, microbeers, liquor, wine, pickles, relish, 
etc.
