    I'm still amazed by just how many cans & bottles I still keep seeing on the streets, sidewalks, parking lots, etc... it makes me cringe! : ( My gym, Planet Fitness, only has 1 recycle can in the whole entire gym!! ... So frustrating... I always peak in their regular trash cans, & I can see cans & bottles in there! ...Sometimes, I just feel hopeless about if people even care about recycling at all, all people care about is to just get rid if it ASAP! ...The sad truth.

    what about when you compare plastic vs. glass? the problem with plastic recycling is glass can become a container again. plastic becomes bricks or mulch, right? I worry about how many recycled plastic products the world can absorb.

    Cans are a lot tougher to seal when reusing to store peaches, pickles, moonshine, or gizzards.
