We have a girl in our neighborhood, in elementary school, not sure how she is. She is working on a bronze award. She is collecting plastic film (baggies, wraps, bubble wraps, bags, not bottles etc.) and needs a total of 700 pounds by September. What a mammoth amount of plastic that is - as it is weightless. Granted get enough and I suppose you make 'bricks' out of it by compression but still... I was getting gas today and the beer truck was making a delivery. The cans were wrapped in plastic. Needless to say, I asked for their plastic. He was happy to oblige.
