Cash refund for plastic, aluminum, and glass bottles.

Bottle redemption:
-helps reduce litter
-provides a source of money for homeless and low income individuals (by collecting and turning in bottles)
-reduces environmental impacts caused by processes used to create bottles
-It is simple to instigate and easy to comply

How would it work?
The price of plastic and aluminum bottles would increase $0.05 and glass $0.10 per unit. The extra amount would be refunded as the bottles are refunded through machines similar to vending machines. It is a quick and easy process.

      We can make so many wonderful things from recycled materials! (see TheSpottedDoor.com for some examples) Our landfills in this nation are filling up at the rate of ~14,000-20,000 POUNDS PER SECOND. Why would anyone think it is okay to leave this mess to future generations? Let's do this!

      The earth is the only thing we really have to give to our future generations. Possessions don't count. Give the future something better than what our ancestors gave us.
