Talking Bottles

Yesterday, I spent a good 10 minutes talking to a bottle, the most astounding part of this was that the bottle actually had something interesting to say.

The bottle was lobbying to implement a container deposit system, like there used to be, in the good old days, when milk came in glass bottles and crates, and everyone would steal the crates because they are the perfect size to keep vinyl in, use as a step stool, build forts out of and a myriad of other uses. 

The bottle proposes to increase recycling by reinstating the cash for containers system where by collecting recyclable cans and bottles and handing them in at the container deposit depot, you get paid the cold hard smackeroonies, or 10 cents per container, one or the other. The bottle was with a group called Boomerang Alliance, who are calling for people to join their cause, and bring their bottles. If you have bottles, or wish to join the cause, you can check out their website or email the Australian Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Populations and Communities

Talking bottles. I did mention I got a touch of sun yesterday, didn't I?
