The Container Recycling Institute maintains this website and the Bottle Bill Resource Guide with the help of our financial supporters, without whom we could not exist. Our supporters include hundreds of individual donors, many foundations, and corporate sponsors such as craft brewers, glass recyclers, glass manufacturers, recycling center operators, and a makers of durable plastic water bottles for personal use.

The neverending fight to end beverage container waste requires a lot of dedication and a lot of work.   There are so many things that you can do to help, and one of them is to provide financial support to the Container Recycling Institute, so we can maintain our network of activists and provide information and other services to those who need them.  Your financial support can come in a variety of forms.
