Should there be a deposit on water bottles?   Leave a comment

I’m sure you’ve seen innumerable water bottles rolling with the wind on streets and sidewalks, littering green areas as well.

Several states have container deposit laws, but some of these laws only cover carbonated beverages–not water products.  It costs about 5 or 10 cents for this deposit, and because it’s a deposit, you get your money back when you return the container.  Why should there even be a distinction?  The materials in a plastic bottle for Pepsi and a bottle for Aquafina are basically the same!

Many states just lack these laws altogether.  So now I pose the question to you: should there be a deposit to be payed on water bottles?
