I intend to contact Coca-Cola and thank them for their effort...I like this
idea as well and I will suggest it to them.

More to the point would be to lobby Coca-Cola to have returnable - reusable
bottles -like they have done in Denmark!

> A "Green Team" of volunteers organized by the Sprite brand of the

> The Green Team collected the material at 75 recycling bins placed at last

> soft drink and water bottles were among the recyclables collected.

> Coca-Cola conducted the program as an experiment in away-from-home

> At the concert, Coca-Cola organized Green Team volunteers to direct

> The Liquid Mix Tour concludes on Sunday, Sept. 8 at San Francisco's
> Shoreline Amphitheatre, where another Green Team will lead an
> away-from-home recycling campaign, according to Shaw.

> The Liquid Mix tour played in 15 cities during August in September
> featuring pop music acts such as Jay-Z, the Roc-a-Fella Family,
> Hoobastank, Nappy Roots, N.E.R.D., Nonpoint and Talib Kweli.

> In addition to live music, the six-hour events have also featured
