Maybe he should be buying cans instead?
Cheaper to buy the beer in cans, lighter to chuck in the bin and take to the recycling.
How about deposit bottles, returned to the shop and then to the brewery in the presumably empty lorries which delivered them full?
Reuse before recycle.
I like to buy a brand brewed locally, at Wainfleet. Fewer lorry miles In an ideal world it could even be brought most of the way by rail.
