  1. I've always wondered why.

    Thanks for coming through, Anna!!!

  2. Anna,
    I've been saving plastic caps for several months now.
    I'm trying to encourage neighbors and friends to do the same. I keep a container under the sink and toss the caps in there. It's so easy to save them.

  3. Thank you Blase & Shasta Daisy,
    You are both so wonderful to help in this effort. It is so easy to save them, isn't it? Even my 3-year old finds them along the sidewalks and parks and picks them up to save them. You both inspire me to continue writing on this topic. Happy thoughts. Anna
