Hi Patty and Becky -

An interesting offer.

But, why is the price so low? I was told several times by Continental
PET that they would offer a 50% premium for brown PET over the price
that the market is paying. Currently, we are getting 10 cents a pound for
mixed clear and green PET. So, with a 50% premium, we're
looking at getting 15 =A2 a pound vs 5-6 =A2 a pound.
