News from North of the Border:

In seven Canadian provinces, school kids can return empty DRINK BOXES for
refunds. The Canadian provinces of BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, New
Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island have
deposits on drink boxes and consumers get money back when the empties are
returned to bottle depots.

THis can be a great fund-raiser for schools, when kids turn the empty boxes
in and the school returns them to depots for refunds.
