Please note a typo in the letter posted to GreenYes on 8/16:

"The fact is that Coke does not use recycled plastic in
the 10 billion bottles it sells every day (should be every
year) in the U.S., despite promising to do so in 1990."

For the record, the 10 billion comes from Beverage World
and is just for carbonated soft drinks. The non-carbonated
drinks sold in PET plastic -- including bottled water,
Power-ade, teas and juices -- is a large and growing
number, approaching that of carbonated soft drinks.
