    With glass there would be a lot more injuries. And clean up.

    Coke used to come in recycled glass bottles and no one made a big deal about it.

    That was before soda became a household word, many kids regularly drink them now, too, etc.
    Soft Drink Consumption: The Frightening Statistics and Associated Health Risks!
    According to the National Soft Drink Association (NSDA), consumption of soft drinks is now over 600 12-ounce servings (12 oz.) per person per year. Since the late 1970`s the soft drink consumption in the United States has doubled for females and tripled for males. The highest consumption is in the males between the ages of 12 - 29; they average 1/2 gallon a day or 160 gallons a year.

    Why is that frightening?

    I do not find it frightening.

    I drink Coke every day and somehow I've stayed alive.

    If they make them out of glass, then there will be broken pieces of glass everywhere.

    I didn’t even notice the title. I was just looking up how consumption has increased.

    You haven't had a soft drink until you taste again Cole in a glass bottle----- ----- if you can find it. But they want an outrageous price. They want as much for a little glass bottle as a 2-liter plastic! THAT SAID,
    1. I thought plastic was recyclable!
    2. I'm totally good with glass containers, actually prefer them. 100% recyclable, just a lot heavier, inconvenient and breakable.
    3. I prefer Pepsi over Coke now ever since 'Coke II.'
