I think you're being a bit harsh. I'm going to make all of these and then that's only 1,999,992 bottles to deal with. That hour.

Here in Scandinavia, drinks with PET bottles like these cost a tiny bit more than they would elsewhere, so that you get a return fee when you bring the empty ones back. The system is applied to aluminium cans too. It is so effective that people go around town rubbish bins and scouring parks for empties. This keeps the place tidy, and provides an income for some people. It also ensures that 95% of them are properly re-cycled.

Yeah? try that in America. People are too lazy to get off their asses to re-cycle, even if there IS an incentive.

2 million per hour ... 200 million americans ... that's 1 bottle per 4.2 days per person, on average. Yup, that's believable.

What about converting these into wanking machines - Americans would start importing empties in the thousands.

a number of people have developed large and small scale ways to break down plastic bottles to raw petrochemicals, ready to use for making fuel or other oil based products. Energy hungry (Solar or other) but would just soak up all the rubbish. Please make your government invest in that for recycling!

Woah, you forgot some! Melt them down and fashion them into artificial limbs for injured soldiers or limbless babies! or put them in the recycling bin and let others make them into the little twiddly bits that switch the wipers on in your new 'eco-friendly' 19 litre (sorry don't know what that translates to in 'dumb american measures') Hummer!! OH or what about, if it's that concerning to you? DON'T buy the bloody things in the first place!

He doesn't know what a greenhouse is. Also, far better for them to be recycled into fleece like in the UK.

Greenhouse: 'a building, room, or area, usually chiefly of glass, in which the temperature is maintained within a desired range, used for cultivating tender plants or growing plants out of season. ' It qualifies, just about.

I thought #1 was going to be ... "Fill it with water. Drink as needed. Never buy another bottle of water!" But no.
