One of my earliest memories, now that I think about it was going shopping to the grocery stores with my mom. As I was the eldest boy I helped carry the paper bags home. A few downtown city blocks. The first few times I was amazed by all the different bottles. All those sizes and shapes and even colours were different at times.
I liked the little bottles best. The hard thick glass ones. Easier to handle, less slippery for the small hands. Today over 50 years latter I still see those same bottles. Actually I have been saving mine up for four years and a half.
Here are some pictures of the trio!
Out of those three the middle one would be the most produced and spread around the world then the other two.
China sends food out to all corners of the world is this is a very big seller. I wonder if we can access the numbers of these bottles produced in the last year or 2, or, 3,…25… 40 .. years?
How many in my lifetime 64+ years did you produce?
How many recycled?
Cost per bottle to produce, energy used , now and b3efore if there was a change?
People of the planet. Does your country recycle these and other bottles? I do not mean break and melt down to remold again. I mean refill!
Time to send them back the empties.
Neighborhoods need recycling centers in every city around the world notably in the developed Countries.
We bring in one million more of those bottles into our country then, in a year or so, we should be ready to return them or re-bottle them here. They send their products in barrels instead.
Louisiana Hot Sauce; I like but most of the consumption of those hot bottles were done by employees and visitors. My muffler doe not like it.
With the covid store closings. We should look for the best locations for recycling centers. Curbside pick-up may be a thing of the past for the spoiled.
All products must come in clean. Plastics, glass, wood, paper, cardboard, old furniture, electronics…
And the lowly ketchup or catchup bottle! The small size (14 oz.). Glass, some use plastic which is not a good idea as it contain vinegar and salt.
Farms should set up spots for two RVs. Have people over for a few days. Show them the work that has to be done. Help out even. Collecting eggs, cutting the hay, working the hoe, cleaning the pig sties…
A work vacation experience.
Pay the farmer for the hydro, water, septic, share cooking food bill…
Do some wild hog hunting in some parts of the country!
