Are we heavy drinkers?

I read this morning that Alicante leads the way in recycling glass with an average of 17.3kgs per person against an average for Spain of 14.5kgs.

What does this say about us? True, there are 8,513 collection containers in Alicante – a ratio of one to every 228 inhabitants which might make it easier for us to recycle our glass but that is still a lot of bottles per person. Perhaps the answer is that we drink more wine and sprits than the rest of the country!
