Very cool! But I'm surprised that so many people passed the plastic bottle and didn't pick it up!

Cool! Like Mark C. wrote, most of the containers in Quebec have a deposit.
I know I would have pick up the container but would have been so intimidated by the attention! But still like the idea!

We hope to have the students at our school monitor the garbage situation next year. We need to train our young to be very serious about managing garbage.

Canada is trying to get people to think about recycling even if only through video games. It's a small step.

That was fabulous - and sad all at the same time.

Great idea! Environment protection groups in all countries should follow this example in order to promote awareness (which is gone missing among our supersaturated population).
