Back in 1982 Massachusetts passed the bottle bill that put a 5 cent deposit on soda and beer containers. I remember when this law came in and bemoaned the increase in the cost. It seemed to me that the price of drinks went up a little more than the 5 cents per container. But we all got use to it and got use to returning our empties.
Times have changed. Back in 1982 we didn’t have sports drinks, energy drinks, and people weren’t as willing as they are today to pay 2000 times more for a small bottle of water that’s essentially identical to the stuff coming out of their faucets at home.
I am definitely voting in favor of the expanded bottle bill and hope you’ll do the same.
