RE: [greenyes] Call for Papers - Global Plastics Envt. Conference, 2/28 to 3/2, 2006, Atlanta

"Environmental Sustainability and Recycling in Action"
.... oh brother!!!! the PET plastic bottle recycling rate has dropped to
10% in the US of A ......YES, that means that 9 out of 10 PET bottles do not
get recycled.......oh, and by the way, in Sweden, where all PET beverage
bottles have a deposit value, the reycling rate is 8 out of 10
bottles DO get recycled.
