I don't think this is what he has in mind, but TerraCycle
http://www.terracycle.net/ is refilling milk and soda bottles with
fertilizer and other products. Why limit refilling containers to refilling
with the same product....

Yes, there's a re-emergence of small local/organic dairies using
refillables.  That was my point.

Gary--

I'm sure you did not imply that refillable milk containers were NEW....but
maybe that there's a re-emergence of small local/organic dairies using them.
Remember when in the early 90's when GE was trying to market LEXAN
[polycarbonate = Bisphenol A] refillable milk bottles??

Ann--
CRI and GRRN have some links,
http://www.container-recycling.org/glassfact/policies.htm but most
information is quite dated, as is the work by ILSR and Inform, Inc.
Maybe contacting Brenda Platt at ILSR and Valerie Hoy at CRI directly would
help...perhaps they have info on the current state of refillables which they
have not published...

Anyone--

Why is it that Coke TV commercials ALWAYS show happy people drinking from
refillable glass bottles????

--Pete

Importance: Low

Ann,

Milk refillables are major new development too.  Strauss Dairy in Marin.
County does that.

Container Recycling in DC is best source for all things refillable (where
Pat Franklin used to work).

Hi ZWForum & GRRN:
 
Don Russell a reporter for the Philadelphia Daily News called me this
morning looking for examples of refillable bottles programs and
legislation.  If you have any information or good leads and can send to me
or Pete Pasterz, that would be terrific.  I will forward to the reporter. 
Sorry I didn't ask his permission to include his email so I deleted it from
this email.
 
He is familiar with Canada's beer bottle refillables and Europes
refillables, and mentioned in Norway even the caps are returned for
reuse/recycling.  Nice to have a reporter who is so savy to EPR concepts.
 
Cool news is somehow he heard of the Club's Zero Waste: Cradle policy and
that it includes refillables.  Yea, Bill Sheehan, Helen Speigelman and Robin
Schneider!!!

Hi Pete -
 
Ann Schneider gave me your name. I write the beer column at the Philadelphia
Daily News, and I'm working on a report about refillable bottles. I'm mainly
interested in any initiatives or reports on U.S. refillable bottle programs.
It seems almost non-existent. Are you aware of any breweries that have
started refilling bottles? Any legislative actions to promote/mandate
refilling?
 
I'm basically trying to get a handle on where refilling stands in the U.S.
