This is why I like the idea of bioplastics. Although not all forms are cost competitive with petroleum based plastics, they don't contain the chemicals such as BPA. As petroleum prices continue to climb, bioplastics will begin to take over the market.

Not all biodegrade however, so there is still the issue with proper recycling. Those that do biodegrade may not do so in an anaerobic environment such as found in a landfill anyway.

That being said, I just don't like the idea of a spirit being bottled in a plastic bottle. It seems to cheapen the experience.
