We should try to reuse all that we can. My question, why can I not take my $17.96 tide Heavy PET bottle and refill with detergent for $5.00 Or Softer, or Shampoo for $14.00 medium weight PET bottle. If people want to start doing this we need to start , anyone up for it contact me.

Thank you for showing how we can re-use something that we think must be shiny and new. I find all of these creative smart attractive and interesting rooms, hallways and more great and fun. The best part is they make you think about things you have any things you have seen. Lovely and a great show, thank you all.
