I don't see what's wrong with good clean water myself

Soft drinks

Click which letter applies to find out your score. I bought soft drinks in:

A. Aluminum cans.
B. Plastic bottles.
C. Glass bottles.
D. A box, in powder form.








A. Give yourself an "B". Aluminum is the most highly recyclable material. It takes much less energy to make aluminum cans from used ones than it does to make them from new material. Go back to top or find out about possible Bonus Points.








B. Give yourself a "C" if the plastic bottles are returnable for a refund at the store, or if they are accepted at your local recycling center. Give yourself a "D" if they are not, or if you do not know whether they are. Go back to top or find out about possible Bonus Points.








C. Give yourself a "B" if the bottles are returnable or accepted at your local recycling center. Give yourself a "D" if they are not, or if you do not know whether they are. Go back to top or find out about possible Bonus Points.








D. Give yourself a "B". By adding your own water, you saved a lot of packaging. Add a plus if your local recycling center also accepts the box (made of what may be called "light cardboard", "kitchen cardboard", "chip board", or "mixed paper.") Go back to top or find out about possible Bonus Points.








Bonus Points: Add a plus to your letter grade if you purchased the largest size container. Leave your score alone if you purchased the medium size. Add a minus if you purchased the small size. Exception -- aluminum cans, because they come only in individual serving sizes which are highly recyclable. Leave your score alone.
I drink plain old water myself. Nothing better! Note: I don't give "A's" for the best soft drink container choices. I feel they are a waste of natural resources because soft drinks are not healthy for humans anyway. And aluminum takes a great deal of energy to make.
