>blocks your path
You can probably just twist the cap a couple times and it will pull right off if you need the cap loose for some odd reason.
>>19720553>couple times and it will pull right offYes, but it will leave dangly piece of plastic there.>for some odd reason.It makes pouring and drinking from the bottle less convenient, that is pretty good reason.
>>19720559>Ah fuck man I gotta solve a puzzle every time I wanna drink my soda pop or the cap touches my nose
>>19720583It's not complicated, but it is clear downgrade from the usability point of view.So it is really annoying, especially when it is done for political reasons.
>>19720517>removes it anyway
>>19720591Trying to reduce litter is a political reason?
>>19720601>Trying to reduce litter is a political reason?It is political when politicians pass the law forcing companies to do something.
>>19720517>complicates recycling in your path
>Take a drink>Put the lid back onWhy the fuck would I need it attached to the bottle? If you're buying a big bottle then you're going to be at home and pouring it into a glass. If you're buying a 600ml bottle then you're out and about and will be putting the cap back on.
>>19720517It seems like an overly complicated method to try and reduce waste. It is very common to do that nowadays.Companies complain about plastic waste and how it is the worst thing in the world and then keep using plastic packaging, even when it isn't necessary to do so.
>>19720743Indeed, and it is not like the plastic bottles offer a superior product, given that all sodas that are packaged in glass bottles taste better!
>>19720751Yea it looks better, tastes better, imo keeps bottles colder and you can straight up reuse them.
>>19720517Just pull it off. Or if you drink Søylent, just have your robot do it.
>>19720629lol fucks sake the eu is such a great example of giving an institution some power and it inevitably trying to govern every minute detail about your lifeI will now twist off 100% of these attached caps and throw it away seperately from the bottle!
>>19720743For the amount of money that little bit of sugar water costs, it really ought to be packaged in glass.
Even when I lived in fucking Los Angeles I never saw bottle caps littered around - only entire bottles. Who is this for?
>>19720827Idk either. It is a performative act to make it seem like something is being done to combat waste. This looks good on records.
Fuck this Greenwashing shit. If you don't want to pollute shit stop buying plastic bottles.
>>19720517I wonder how much litter per day is generated by lost caps not being recycled worldwide.
>>19720901I've read somewhere that 13% of recycled Coca Cola bottles are without caps, which seems pretty negligible.
>>19720647Apparently there are millions of people out there who open a bottle and just fucking launch the lid into the bushes.
>>19720517I can't imagine how people will find a way to get mad at this, but I know that they will.
>>19720743I remember when Snapple switched from glass to plastic and the bottles were like "NEW! PLASTIC BOTTLE!" and I thought "uhhhhh, why are they bragging about a bad thing?"
>>19720947Retarded feelgood shit deserves to be called out. Companies only do it so they can show governments they are being good boys.
>>19720517Why the fuck do they ever do plastic bottles if they're so concerned about this complete hoax? Glass bottles makes it taste better anyway.
>>19720517My world is demolished. Disease, war, famine, these things mean nothing to me. But these bottles... they scare me. Children will weep. Women will moan in agony. Men will fall back into their primitive nature.Coca-Cola, please don't do this. I offer you my body. All detached caps can be crammed up my ass to prevent the destruction of this world...
>>19720583Why should I have to solve a puzzle every time I purchase a coke?
>>19721011I will take your female family members instead
>>19720629jee I wonder what race throws the caps away seperately.
Why the fuck are you retards angry at this? It's a clear improvement, provides a feature and doesn't add to the cost.
>>19721069Why don't they switch to glass howeverbeit?
>>19721069>It's a clear improvementHave you ever had one of these? It's clearly detrimental to ease of use.
>>19721069i don't have it on hand but imagine i quoted you and posted a picture of the greedy merchant.
>>19720517Governments zero in on the tiniest of comforts to strip away for no good reason. If they cared about the environment they’d sever trade with China and India until they clean up their acts, but they DON’T care. In fact they love China for their potential to price the general public out of basic vehicular mobility, nevermind that the “green” batteries are TERRIBLE for the environment and they use child slave labor to help mine dangerous materials to build them. BP has purchased a huge amount of forest in my Mississippi town with plans to destroy it to build a solar farm, displacing wildlife to build an electrical plant we don’t need that will become a toxic junkyard in ten years as it obsolesces and is abandoned. They’re not even hiring locals to do any of this. Most materials will be mined by children in China and Africa. All materials will be purchased from China. All of this to destroy our land and make highly pollutant China rich because Biden gave BP money to spend on “green energy.” Ruining the beauty of our small town, killing our wildlife, and polluting our soil and water with chemicals. All in the name of “green energy.” Just go refit your bedroom with a concrete slab to sleep on and tinfoil sheets in case the filthy grease-soaked kitchen catches fire and burns the house down. Heaven forbid you clean the kitchen! Oh no, can’t do THAT.It’s bad enough that they keep trying to ban plastic straws. Now anytime you take a sip from a bottled beverage the cap will hit your face. What a useless thing to do to address a problem while inconveniencing everybody.
In Australia the recycling places want you to remove the cap. They'll hate this.
>>19720517it's because retards can't help throwing their trash everywhere
>>19720629>It is political when politicians pass the law forcing companies to do something.If they couldn't or didn't do that, you can have companies dump their cancer causing chemicals in your backyard and there's nothing you can do. A lot of bad shit can happen if we can't regulate companies. You're a fucking idiot
>>19721233In America we have a problem with SELECTIVE regulation. Mississippi’s poultry industry is dominated by companies like Tyson who won’t hire locals because they hire illegal immigrants instead to pay them poorly and treat them like shit. During Trump’s administration they tried to deal with this, resulting in Mississippi holding the highest single-state ICE raid in history, but Biden’s administration is back to turning a blind eye. A couple of months ago we had a 16-year old illegal kid die in one of these chicken plants. Very young illegal kids getting chemical burns or getting no sleep because their illegal parents bring them in at night to clean in these dangerous facilities. Companies like Tyson are free to exploit foreign slave labor and foreign child slave labor while locals go unemployed. Our government chooses instead to hire 80,000 IRS agents to audit Boomer Susan’s $600 Etsy sales.
>>19721233regulate the companies?! you have to be fucking shitting me faggot this so called regulation is the most infinitesimal bit of inconvinience for companies one could think of, all they have to do is change one parameter in a computer connected to all cap making machines and they are donethis shit changes nothing the ammount of plastic trash is still the same plastic fumes pollution is still the same all the plastic bottles and microplastic in the sea is still the sameIf anyone in power would give a rat ass about this they would make all the CEO niggers of sugary shit companies clean this fucking disgrace with their bare hands
>>19721328This is the heart of the issue. If our government really cares, ban plastic soda bottles. End this once and for all. Life was perfectly fine with aluminum cans and glass bottles. Making the caps stay attached is a bullshit way to spend Biden’s green new deal ESG money. It is PATHETIC. It is POINTLESS. But it “helps save the environment, because we say so. Thanks for your tax dollars!”
>>19721055Only on 4chan is throwing away your bottle cap separately a race thing
>>19721327>80,000 IRS agents to audit Boomer Susan’s $600 Etsy salesyou've lost the plot
>>19721328>all they have to do is change one parameter in a computer connected to all cap making machines and they are doneThe real world isn't a minecraft mod.
>>19721393>What is hyperbole?
>>19721391It's true though, they openly talked about hiring around 80,000 new enforcement agents to the IRS right after the announcement of federal taxes starting at $600 income.
>>19721226yeah totally. this right here is the problem to world pollution. forget industialization, we need to fix the soda bottle caps because think of the children.
>>19721405A poor concealment of rank ignorance.
>>19721441Ah yes, not unlike your ironic and denigrating statement. Rope sil vous plaiet
recycling plastic is just a scam used to subsidize cheap packaging for large companiesif they cared about environmental impact the government would mandate glass bottles only which not only break down into sand but can be 100% recycled infinitelybut the government doesn't care about the environment at all, they just use it as an excuse to force spending habits and help large companies steal more money from people
>>19721391nigga they're counting venmo as income now and you need to declare it.you decide to go on a vacation and buy the plane tickets and your friends venmo you, that's declared as income now even though you were just collecting it to pay for something else
>>19720517twist and pullcap unlockedno cap :^)
>will change things surely
>>19721459>no cap :^)frfr
>>19720517China and India will be paradise after this.
>>19720936I was taught growing up to take the caps off of bottles when I put them in the trash or recycling so they take up less space
>>19721470Different countries probably process them differently. It's not that weird.
>>19721492It just makes more sense from a practical perspective, take the cap off and crush the bottle so you can fit more things in the trash or recycling can instead of it being filled with plastic pockets of air
>>19721499>Take the cap off>Crush the bottle>Put the cap on to keep it nice and flat.
>>19720601There is no reason why unattached caps would cause more litter. You put the lid back on when you are done drinking and throw the whole thing away.
>>19721069This is 4chan; retards will find a reason to get mad at literally anything.
>>19720954Man snapple was so fucking good back in the day. I tried one a few years ago and it was so sickly sweet and artificial tasting I wanted to vomit.
>>19721532Why are you replying to yourself?
>>19720517don’t drink from bottles then baby
>>19721575It's funny how people who reply to a post to say "heh this is frickin FOURchan dude the dumb chuds here will get mad at ANYthing" are almost always samefagging
I once dropped a bottle cap on a beach and some sand stuck to the wet side of the cap and I had to waste some water to wash it out. This prevents that from happening ever again and there's literally no difference to the usability of the bottle so it's good.I'm 100% sure that if any of you retarded contrarians were around when the pull-tab can was introduced, you'd complain about it anyway, despite it being the superior design.
>>19721681>Innovation is>le bottlecap stringgay ass future

>>19720517i hate liberal democracy
>>19720517>drinking soda from plastic
>>19721681i would just ban soda. As always liberalism is not about solving problems but servicing them
>please ignore the amount of pollution we create with these unrecyclable plastic bottlesI hate liberals so fucking much
>>19721825It doesn't work like that, you can't ban vices. That has been endlessly tried and all it does is cause more grief. People are going to find ways to fuck themselves up. The goal should be knowledge and correction, educate the public on why these things are so terrible and offer alternatives. Create disincentives, add a thousand percent tax to soda so a 2 liter costs a hundred bucks. Banning doesn't work they already tried that with alcohol. Soda would be impossible since it's even easier to make at home.
>>19720517It was in Italy for a bit in summer and all the plastic bottles had this shit. Very annoying
>>19721839>haha just let corporations dump more plastic into the ocean because fat people will cry if they don't get their sodalolberts should be the first ones to face the wall. Society should stand up to things that are a net negative valueYou don't even need to ban the whole thing, just ban the stupid plastic. A different cap solves jack shit, the problem is the godamn fucking plastic packaging and recycling is a meme anyways. Its just marketing so they can keep being retarded and you keep thinking things are not getting worse.
>>19721850>haha just let corporations dump more plastic into the ocean because fat people will cry if they don't get their sodaSurely the problem is dumping the plastic into the ocean and not the caps not being attached by weak piece of plastic you can easily tear off.
>>19721774>rightoids larpingAh, I see you’re retarded and still buy into the team redhat team bluehat meme. Pro tip: All politicians push through the same shit. This is a FLASS war (money/power). Our government hates us and wants us to die. They want us all poor and powerless to keep them in check. Greenwashing measures that render you more poor, less mobile, and less independent are albeit the signature of “the left” but both parties push it through. They’re just polishing the brass on the Titanic to trick you into supporting them. Why WON’T our government ban plastic soda bottles? Why make some gay-ass extra tab OF MORE PLASTIC to keep the plastic lids attached to the plastic bottles? Explain this to me.
>>19720954The taste of the product went way down hill when they ditched the glass bottles.
>>19720517this is so fucking annoying. meanwhile africans keep multiplying so all this green-washing is worthless because niggers gonna nig
>>19722205that particular gentlemen of dark skin in the image is worth more than you are by powers
>>19722006>Greenwashing measures that render you more poor, less mobile, and less independent are albeit the signature of “the left”Only if you think neolibs are “the left”. The push of blaming either ocean pollution or fossil fuel emissions on the consumers instead of their practices are widely known to be targeted efforts by the plastic industry and fossil fuel companies with recycling and the carbon footprint respectively. Neolibs are just as dick riders to corporate interests as the right yet your types will always advocate for the reactionary right wing policies that accelerate the planet towards more pollution and warming with corporate deregulation. If you’re claiming overreach by the government for the plastic tabs then why wouldn’t you call a plastic soda ban overreach as well? You can’t point out this contradiction and on the same breath accuse the left of overreaching with environmental policies.
>>19721138No they don't
>>19721499They shred the bottles.
>>19720517I don't get it, do people usually lose their caps? Most people just put the cap back on the bottle don't they?
>>19720629Doesn't this create even more plastic?
remember the paper straws
>>19722506Apparently not and discarded caps account for 10% of all plastic waste on european beaches. >>19720629
>>19722417Don’t selectively quote me. >Greenwashing measures that render you more poor, less mobile, and less independent are albeit the signature of “the left” but both parties push it through. And now onto the other part of your drivel>your typesReading comprehension ain’t your strong point now is it, buddy. You’re behaving just like the “neo libs” as you call them. You take my words out of context and this is the second time you’ve accused me of being right wing. If you don’t want to, or can’t, answer basic questions then just shut the fuck up and stop replying with your empty-headed noise. I want to know how manufacturing an extra tab of plastic to hold two plastic items together is the solution rather than simply USING GLASS BOTTLES.
>>19720629>>19722566Well just stop putting them in the ocean.
>>19720601if you want to reduce litter, then just get rid of the orcs
>>19722581Nobody with European ancestry is putting plastic caps in the ocean. The people that do that don't care and will put the whole bottle in the sea anyway, whether the cap is attached or not. You can't fight African fertility rates with a little piece of plastic.
>>19721789>no-one actually 'drinks' coke?????>we attempted to make cocktails using Monsterthat's an energy drink. Coke is a .........cola
>>19721839>Create disincentives, add a thousand percent tax to soda so a 2 liter costs a hundred bucks. that's the same as banning. there is a Russian anectode: "Son asks: Father, there is a new alcohol tax, that means you will drink less? Dad says: No it means you will eat less."
>>19721789Nice spergout post. I like the random info dump about your personal life at the end. Keep posting please, and see you around.
>>19721789the lardasses filling their shopping carts to the brim says otherwise
>>19721055literally only the japanese do this
>>19722566Did they count the bottles without caps too? What difference does it make if someone throws them in the sea separately or attached? Also, the kind of oeple who throw this shit in the sea in the first place wil just rip it of as it's more convenient that way just like throwing itnin the sea is more convenient than looking for a bin. This is just political virtue signalling BS so they can tell they're doing something. Want to reduce plastic waste? Stop producing it. But then you'd have to use glass and glass is more expensive to transport so huge corporations shipping their products worldwide would suffer the most and we can't have that. Better let everything local die out.
>>19722810They do that because they recycle them separately.

>>19721391Where's the lie?
>>19720601>Trying to reduce litter is a political reason?Life long politically correct recycling-fag here! Let me explain to you the history of plastic bottle recycling!first it was>only recycle the bottle, throw away the lid. the lid is made out of different plastic and we cant seperate the two kinds of plastic easily xd not our problem thats your problem ;)then it was>recycle the bottle and the lid, but you must seperate the bottles from the lids and put them in different containers. we found a profitable way to handle that lid plastic so give it up hahaha its fun making you dig through the trashnow all of a sudden its>recycle the bottle and the lid together but you gotta let the lid t-bag you while you drink your sugar water because we said so. give us the whole thing or you hate the planet, you dont hate the planet right? Theres a reason mainlyhomeless people and old boomers recycle, its humilating and frustrating. They basically have trained us to sort garbage for them and then pay them for the privilege. The money they 'pay you' isnt actually them paying you, its you getting back the money they took from you as a tax to pay for the recycling program itself. Its a giant political circle jerk of corruption and conmen and has aboslutely nothing to do with litter or even reusing the bottles. After covid regulations on material purity were changed, it suddenly became perfectly legal to mix bottle and lid plastics together. Typically the plastic is shredded and reformed into new products, not necesarily bottles. Why are there microplastics everywhere? Largely in part because of bottle "recycling". Those shove it in pillows and fabrics andtoys all kinds of crazy stuff. And now that industry standards are... more lax, they want that extra plastic back so they can profit from it. Before, they were more than happy to dump that shit into an incinerator or a landfill. It was never about litter, only profit for private corporations.
>>19723426in some parts of Mexico they don't even have potable water because Coke owns all the water supplies and uses it all on soda lol. >>19721875plastic will always get dumped somewhere and it will never decomposed, most can't be recicled and even burned it will only create more pollution and dump poison in the air , the problem is plastic packaging as a whole.There is no milquetoast bullshit cope that will work for this.
>>19721875the problem is corporations using plastic in the first place because they dont want to pay for the shipping costs of using actually recyclable bottles: glass and metal. in the boomer era, every thing came either in paper/cardboard, metal, or glass. It was only with the advent of globalism that corpos decided they would play the short-term game and use plastic because its ridiuclously cheaper to make/use/trash.
>>19721789tf are you talking about niga
>>19723832The sad thing is, at least for my area, nobody is paid for turning in recyclables anymore. You used to be able to get a few cents per can or so. It was enough even to motivate drifters to push a shopping cart and pick up trash or even dig through public trash cans and dumpsters. My dad (boomer) back in the day saved enough money by recycling that he bought his bicycle. Now they pay nothing. Not one penny. IN FACT if you want to separate your trash and have it picked up at your house you must PAY to have an extra can outside your house for them to pick up your recycling. That’s some serious bullshit.
>>19721695>proper way to pissmens shitters in yurop have instructions to sit while you piss, for reasons of sexism, or some bullshit
Why don't they just get rid of bottles and go with cans with resealable tabs? They already exist.
>>19724819Trad german toilets have a shit shelf so you can examine the mess you made. It fucks with the angle when peeing upright so you gotta sit. The design is older than the term "transgender" and such toilets are no longer built.
>>19720998it's just greenwashing. transitioning back to glass bottles would affect the price of buying one and in this age of increasing poverty and income inequality that's too much of a financial risk for a big company to take.

>>19721789>no-one actually 'drinks' coke>t.work in a barDo you think that might slightly bias the sampling of drinkers you encounter?
I remember 10 years ago in school where we were taught to throw out the bottle cap because the plastic is different (and you can't recycle them). There were signs everywhere that we can't put the caps into the recycle bin.What happened? Did the plastic used for bottle caps change?
>>19721850>corporationsYou meant to write "government". That's okay, happens to the best of us.
>>19727890Am I the only one who was told caps are recyclable but don't keep them on the bottle cause the bottle will pop that way during processing? Mind, I don't really recycle. My trash gets a recycling included and I put my empty beer boxes in it and some of my cans if I empty them there and shit but I put no real effort and if I run out of trash room guess where it goes lol. I'll put anything in recycling you think the trash man has time or care to call the cops about it? They don't give a fuvk
>>19727890I was always taught to crush the bottle down and replace the lid so that it took up way less space in the recycling
>>19721456>>that's declared as incomeYou are an absolute git if you declare that as income.
the fuck is this shit? i thought this was a food/cooking board
>>19721456That's obviously not true. You declare as income only the incomes. The fact you receive money through Venmo or directly in your bank account makes no differences, these are just payment channels. So if you receive a refund of something that you pay for through other means you don't declare it. If course if the amount is large you might have to explain to the IRS. But that would be moronic anyway to rely on Venmo for large sums.
>>19720940And then responsibly recycle the bottle. I'm not sure if the world has always been like this or we're all going crazy.
