Re: [GRRN] Bottles vs. Cans

The issue of replacing can vending machines with plastic is one I have thought about for a while. One approach that I keep coming back to is one of placing stickers on the plastic bottle vending machines urging consumers to not buy the products and citing one or two reasons for them to insist on aluminum cans.

I think this sort of thing might be effective on campuses, both college and high schools. It would spread the word and piss of the bottlers.

Any comments or thoughts?
