I buy milk in a carton instead of a plastic jug. Any water jugs get smashed by me stepping all over it. It's never completely flat but it does help when you are short of space.

I just bought a tank thing I put in my fridge. It cools and filters the water. Water in jugs from the store is ultra cheap. But I don't see the point of getting jugs when I can filter the water myself. I see Mexicans with shopping carts FULL of plastic bottles. I can understand how they don't trust tap water. But they must be unacquainted with the many ways of getting pure water that don't involved all that PLASTIC.

It is never good to burn plastic. I have reported two of my neighbors for burning plastic, which is against the law in my county and the state.

Depends on recycle programs. The good ones take plastic jugs and have for a long time. But some backward areas probably don't recycle anything.

Always burn plastic and old tires at night. That way neighbors will be able to report you a lot less.

Hey, there's a massive floating island in the middle of the Pacific, made by people too lazy to dispose correctly.
