Rome has introduced a system whereby credits towards metro fairs can be obtained through… recycling plastic bottles. The program now known as “Ricicli + Viaggi” (Recycle + Travel) is being tested at points along all three of Romes metro lines

By depositing a PET bottle ( a standard drinks bottle) you will earn a 5 cent credit, meaning collecting 30 bottles will get you a free metro ride (€1.50).

Who thinks we should start introducing this across ALL of Europe?!
