    Exclamation Refill your Taco Bell sauce packets?

    Taco Bell wants you to send back your used sauce packets so it can refill them...


    Taco Bell has a plan in place to recycle some of the 8 billion pounds of used sauce packets that go into U.S. landfills every year.


    The fast-food chain is rolling out a nationwide pilot program for customers to send used sauce packets back through the mail. The program, which was initially announced as a trial in April, was created with recycling company TerraCycle to "divert as many used sauce packets as possible away from landfills" and reuse them.


    Here's how it works: Customers sign up for a TerraCycle account, collect empty sauce packets in a recyclable container, print a free shipping label from TerraCycle's website and ship the box back via UPS. Taco Bell will display QR codes and other signage in various parts of restaurants to promote the program and encourage sign-ups.

    Nice gesture.

    Likely earns a tax break.

    Hopefully they're not actually going to refill them but just recycle.
    Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.

    I don't see empty sauce packets lying about, but I do see discarded Masks everywhere I walk or travel these days!

    Sounds like Taco Bell is trying to WOKE Message about a non existent crisis. And yes, I do recycle plastic and glass containers.
