Regarding your Viewpoint ["Grandma, Sedgwick raise the hue and cry," Page 6, April 16]: Activists continue their efforts to ban the plastic bottle and the industry continues attempts at appeasement by "increasing the rate of recycling." If activists don’t like 30 percent maybe they’ll like 50 percent, or 60 percent? There is always going to be an activist somewhere that is offended by something, and today they get heard. We can’t stop that, but we can educate the consumer of the values and the real environmental costs of PET bottles.
