It seems a bit bizarre to break, sort, melt, form and refill a Snapple bottle rather than just wash and refill it with Snapple. No doubt the technology will get there one day.

#1 all over Europe, bottle return for a refund has been a thing for decades. But lately, everything is switching to either plastic, or to nonrefundable bottles - apparently, going through the entire recycling process, with separate disposal bins, all the transportation of raw material, filtering and the furnace, is somehow cheaper than just washing and sterilizing the bottles. I have no clue how that works out.

The thing now in Europe is: Plastic bottles are light, and do not take up alot of space when crushed. And make transporting them more fuel efficient, because they dont need as many vehicles to transport a larger amount than before.

In Europe is also works out cheaper to ship chickens from UK farms by truck to Denmark for processing. It works out cheaper with shipping and using foreign optimized facilities than to do it locally in the UK.
