Dear friends,

Enjoying a relaxing afternoon, a walk on the beach, Ponta do Curral, just oposite Morro de Sao Paulo, Bahia. Just above the high water line, a great number of PET bottles and other plastic garbage...

In a feable attempt Cris and I tried to gather the mess, but it was just too much... Whilst collecting, we wondered: If these PET bottles would be worth money (as is the case with alu cans recycling here in Brazil) no one would toss them away, and even so, people would go and collect and turn it  into money.

Simple solution. I know of various countries where you pay a few pennies more when buying a PET bottle, and you get it back upon returning the empty bottle. So, why is this not done by the softdrink companies here in Brazil?

Take care,
