Are you aware of how much energy is used to make those one use plastic bottles? Have you any idea what is happening to the vast majority after their one use.

Easy first step would be to ban these bottles, loss of demand would mean rest would follow. I'd promote drinking tap water too and not even have the dispensers. Job's a goodun!

Solo best mpg is achieved around 55 -60 mph over this drag becomes a dominant factor. Cruise control uses more fuel  than a light right foot.

As far as promoting ideas then I think the formaldehyde issue must be addressed.

Formaldehyde was banned years ago and hasn't been in toilet fluid for some years. AD made the same comment but I let it pass.

Sorry to disagree PD but I have a stock of blue in my garage bought in the UK last year from a certain German supermarket; the labels clearly state 5.84% formaldehyde.

I didn't know that Peedee,.

Is there  another reason  some places ask for only the Green fluid . I thought it was something to do with the blue damaging the action within  septic  tanks.

You will never see plastic or glass bottles left lying around in Croatia . There is a 50lp  (Abt 6 pence) deposit  on them. People turn up at collection points with car loads. Even on the campsite we use as fast as a bottle is left by the bins someone takes it.
