In October, I announced on this list, a one man campaign against PVC
bottles. While working the sorting pad on Monday mornings, I have been
scooping out the PVC bottles and our office prepared a form letter we sent
to each with Peter Anderson's analysis (previously posted)of the impact of
PVC on the PET stream. Below is a list of the companies we sent our letter
asking them to discontinue the use of PVC for bottling their products. Feel
free to use the list, add to it or give me any feedback. If I get any
replies (the first round of letters got none) I will post the essential

Happy Holydaze to all you recyclers out there.
