The article presents a challenge for people who work out to help protect the environment. The fossil fuels from a million empty bottles could be serving a better purpose, such as fueling up to 100,000 cars for a year. Nalgene's "Refill Not Landfill" pledge invites people to stick to one bottle. Proceeds from the commemorative bottles go toward NativeEnergy, an organization building Native American renewable energy products.
