I think this are great yet small steps for a cleaner world but the US is still responsible for 25% of all the pollution in the world.
Take the coke bottles. In EU they have more ridged bottles that you take back to the store when empty (for a fee) and it is taken back to the factory. They get washed and cleaned and refilled. About 90% of homes have fully isolation (double glazing etc) and my washer ways the clothing, add detergent, adds water that is enough and measures the water every minute to see if it's clean. When it is it stops.
When I'm there it just feels most Americans don't care.
