Re: [GreenYes] Good Zero Waste article in Sarasota, FL HeraldTribune
Isn't Tropicana the brand that uses the difficult to deal with barrier enhancement with its one-gallan plastic jugs?

Good article.  And having just learned that Minute Maid is owned by Coca
Cola gives me even more justification to switch from Minute Maid organge
juice products to Tropicana.  Anyone else know of any other environmental
benefits associated with Tropicana vs. Minute Maid?

On a similar note, I've heard that Procter & Gamble, Tropicana's parent
company, is suing Coke for patent infringement over their orange juice
products.  It certainly would be nice if a company with the werewithal of
P & G could take on the big three beverage companies and induce some much
needed changes in their environmental ethos.
