From the Okefenokee Swamp to the Grand Canyon:



 



 



The following is according to Corinne Ball; and, in part, to the New York Times:



 



Plastic water bottles are the biggest single source of garbage in America's most iconic national park. So the National Parks Service had a plan: ban the sale of plastic water bottles in the Grand Canyon and invest in refillable water stations instead. The park was just weeks from implementing the ban and then Coca Cola stepped in.



 



According to the New York Times, Coca Cola which has donated $13 million to national parks asked the National Park Service to not ban the sale of plastic water bottles. Incredibly, the head of the National Parks Service bowed to Coke, and cancelled the Grand Canyon's bottle ban.



 



Grand Canyon National Park wouldn't be the first to ban the sale of plastic water bottles. In 2008, Zion National Park in Utah banned plastic water bottles. The National Park Service even gave the park an environmental achievement award for eliminating 60,000 plastic bottles from the park in its first year.

Wouldn't be a problem if people weren't ******* lazy slobs. How te hell hard is it to carry out an empty plastic bottle?!! :mad:

 

I'll never get that either. I saw a guy chuck a McDonalds bag out his window a few months ago. Crap flew everywhere. All I could think of is what a giant dick he must be to know.

Seems like it wasn't too long ago, plastic water bottles were a yuppy thing and the yuppies looked down on those who didn't want to pay for water and carried a jug, now it's the yuppies who look down on those with water bottles.

If the energy density is anywhere near what the ecotard liars had claimed, it could be profitable to mine it, but once again, the liars prove to be frauds.

 

 

 

Did I say yuppies are a problem I don't think so. How about you try to actually read stuff and actually understand it, if possible, before regurgitating another dumb comment onto the tavern?

AHHHH back to the OP, it seems retarded that the Feds would bow to KO on something as simple as keeping our parks clean. Some people are just pigs, the houses are dirty, their cars are dirty, they through tras out of their cars with no thought whatsoever. Ban the bottles damit

If Coke donates MORE than it costs for cleanup they made the right choice,



if not,



then it's a bad choice.



 



 



but littering sucks,



 



and people with their waterbottles are the WORST offenders right now.



 



people who won't otherwise litter seem to be blind to leaving their empties behind,



 



it makes me sick.

People need to pick up their stuff. Banning them is ridiculous. They make good fuel, anyway.
