[GreenYes] Re: RecycleBank

While the concept of offering a discount on groceries as an incentive to
recycle is a good one, a look at their list of vendors reveals quite a few
options for non-essential purchases; though I realize many of the people you
mention may be opting for groceries.

While much attention hs been generated regarding RecycleBank's awarding of
Starbuck coupons, in fact, more of their success in the Philly market and
elsewhere is by attracting working families and lower-income residents to
particpate in recycling by giving them discounts on their grocery purchases
This has no waste generation effect. ..
