    But they ARE recycling the bottle.
    It ISN’T single use.

    During my three week visit to Germany in 2008, we traveled from Grafenwoher(spelling? can’t do the umlaut) to Koln, to Heidelberg, Amsterdam, and Prague. It was only in the Czech republic we saw litter. We saw three plastic bags on the side of the highway in Germany and Amsterdam on three separate occasions, and NO plastic bottles or for that matter, paper litter. It was as if the whole nation was prepping for a photo shoot for better nations and gardens.
    While I feel this law on single serve water bottles is a bit silly, I would like to see higher fines on littering – it is a very preventable crime. It saves taxpayers money when state/city employees don’t have to spend time beating the grass to make sure there are no cans, metal, or glass in the grass about to be mowed. Litter damages mowers, encourages animals to scavenge along the road side, and if caught by the blades of a mower, can be thrown into fast moving traffic.
    There should also be more recycling cans at gas stations, fast food restaurants, and rest areas in order for people to have a place to dispose of such waste. We have such a beautiful nation, but just hitting an average off or on ramp by the interstate highway shows how little pride too many of our neighbors have in for our cities, states, and nation.
    Respectfully,

    Thanks Clark!
    I’ll try that. I’m learning spanish so I’ve been looking for a good tool to do the punctuation properly. So far, I’ve not had success with the other sites info, so I hope I succeed with yours.
    Happy New Year and have a…
    Super Year! (i’m a bad jokester and should be flagged)

    “But they ARE recycling the bottle.”

    The word you’re thinking of is “reusing” or “repurposing.”

    In Switzerland, I was actually talking to a local in Murten who was smoking. He had a sudden sneeze, which popped the cigarette out of his mouth. He stomped it out, picked it up, walked about 30 feet to a trash can and dropped it in before resuming our conversation. It’s a cultural thing in Central Europe and Scandanavia. The people seem proud of how clean their communities are. In six months in Switzerland, I could have picked up all the litter I saw, put it in my pocket, and still had room for my keys and cellphone.

    When I was camping out in Canada I would find piles of garbage with French words on them. I never saw English trash, just French.

    Those guys are amateurs. Coleman and Lenny turned a fish tank into a bong. The fish were happy. ;)

    In the early 90s, a friend came back from doing some contracting work in Calcutta, India. I asked what he liked best about being back in the states. I expected him to talk about the food, or services, etc. After a moment of quiet, he said,
    “What i like best is that I can go nearly anywhere and over the course of the day, not see a single dead body lying on the ground.”
    Some days, he said, he would see ten or more.
    I have talked with folks who were born or visited Asia, and litter seems to be prevalent in most nations to one degree or another.
    But, at least in the USA, it is still extremely rare to see a human animal lying dead on the side of the road.
    Thank you for the insight. I know German McDonald’s had offerings not seen in the US, I wonder what Mickie D fare includes in China.
    Take care,
    C.

    Thank you, Mechanic.
    Wish I could get you to look at the sensor near the top of my manifold. My last trusted mechanic retired and too many others have the “do everybody once” attitude.
    Sincerely,
    C.
