Letter to the i newspaper:
Your excellent special report on, the environmental damage caused by plastic bottles (i15 March) rightly stresses the importance of recycling and drastic cutting back on the use of such PET bottles and containers.
Until such an eventuality is realized, perhaps, there is a lesson to learned from the innovation of Ernesto Maurer, a 90 year old Christmas tree plantation owner, in Amecameca, near Mexico City, whose Bosque de los Arboles de Navidad ( http://www.bosquenavidad.
com/ (which I visited last month) uses PET bottles to limit evaporation by covering his water reservoirs used to water his over one million trees.
Mexico is a country obsessed by soft drinks, and much of it suffers from lack of water, so this is a win-win use of some surplus plastic bottles, that could be copied.
