    HELP: I need empty, clear, 2 L soft drink bottles.

    My Freecycle supply has dried up. Has anyone got any that they would be willing to donate?

    Thanks,

    Hank.

    I'd go to your nearest grocery store or local depanneur, and ask them for 2L bottles. give them a buck and pickup 20..

    I mean gas wise, you'll save a ton instead of driving over.. but if you insist,
    I have 6-7 of them i was saving for my plankton grow-up.. which never happened.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Thanks. Our stores don't take returns on 2 L bottles. I guess I could go out on blue box day and dig through people's recycling. Hehehe.

    That's the only thing we can do with thiem other than tossing them in the garbage. We always put out more recycling than we do garbage.
