Coke bottles recycled into school uniforms


I read this in The Guardian on the plane back from Oslo, seems pretty cool. Apparently some English schools are buying fabric from the Chinese made from recycled coke bottles and having that fabric made into school uniforms. Though a bit more expensive than the old materials, the recycled material helps any school who uses it meet carbon footprint quotas set by the state.  I guess the bigger question is, what do we think of these quotas?

    It sounds like the school uniforms should be waterproof (made from plastic) so maybe the parents will be able to save money by not having to purchase raingear!
