A "status symbol"?
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

What we allow our industries to do matters. I reuse glass bottles. I use screw tops or put a cork to create my own water bottles from glass soda bottles from my own filtered tap water, The water and the sodas taste far better from glass.

MA: White House puts advisory panel for Cape Cod preserve on hold | David Abel | The Boston Globe
