The variety and volume of bottled drinks has exploded in the 21st century. Unfortunately, it takes a financial incentive to keep lots of people, including millions of Hoosiers, from turning the empties into litter. The summer study group will hear from other states, industry people and environmental organizations who deal with the cleanups. Let’s hope the study produces action and change, soon. Indiana has beauty under its litter.
