Make Snapple Switch Back to Glass Bottles
This petition had 58 supporters
Until recently, Snapple bottles were always bottled in glass rather than plastic. There are numerous advantages to drinking from a glass bottle over a plastic one. For one, glass bottles are more environmentally friendly. Plastic bottles may be recyclable, but household recycling rates in the united states are abysmal at best. With only 35% of U.S. waste being recycled and composted, (compared to Germany, the world leader at 66%) recycling cannot be relied on as a real solution (https://www.forbes.com/sites/niallmccarthy/2016/03/04/the-countries-winning-the-recycling-race-infographic/#17c0d3da2b3d
Plastic bottles also pose serious health concerns. It is well known that many plastic bottles release carcinogens into the beverage, especially when left in a warm area.
