Plastic water bottle recycling encouraged for teams
Brents Computer coach Charlie Adams has a PET on the field, although not the kind referred to on the sign. In Adams case, his PET is his water bottle which can be recycled to reuse the material out of which it is made and to reduce the amount of waste going into landfills.
When the Warren County Pioneer football team takes a timeout on the gridiron, fans are used to seeing green Gatorade water bottles being passed around. It’s not only a good idea to keep the team hydrated, but from an environmental standpoint it’s a best practice as the reusable water bottles keep down on the plastic throw-away bottles that don’t get recycled as often as one might think.A government study in 2003 found only about 12 percent of water bottles are recycled. Today, depending on where you get your statistics, it can range up to 30 percent of PET bottles are recycled.
