I just contacted Aveda because they do recycle caps, and use them... They collect them at certain stores and whole foods locations... Perhaps this long standing hoax can be used for profit through a company that does indeed want screw top caps. Go Aveda for recycling, and go places like Ronald McDonald House who initially took up on the first pop tab 'hoax' and now collects them for helping many many kids in need!

I catell you that people do save the pop top tabs from the soda cans my childrens school does it and they have been doing this for a few years now. they save them because they are small and you can hold more of them, but we donate them to the Ronal McDonal house. they got part of the sorty right. They take the tabs and turn them in for cash.
Yes Ronald McDonald House takes them, well some do that is so check first. They get about .27cents per pound(about 1250 tabs) and its better to drop off because it costs about $3 to mail.

A church here in north carolina just collect tons of bottle caps in the vbs this week. for a child to get free chemo treatments, they collected them for chapel hill childrens hospital. it was just in the news paper that every 500 tops gets a freechemo treatment. the only thing they dont take is prescription bottle caps. I am trying to find out more about this my self.

Pattie, I contacted the hospital, North Carolina Children's Hospital, and their spokesperson says this about bottle cap collection: "sadly, there is no truth to the program." View it yourself at their Facebook Page Here > www.facebook.com/ncchildrenshospital/posts/10...

NCCH contacted the newspaper, The (Roanake-Chowan) News-Herald, which is supposed to do a follow-up correction tomorrow, 8/3/2013.

As always, COLLECTING the caps (or aluminum pull tabs) does not prove the program is true, because there is lots of collecting going on. But no one is getting medical treatment from collecting them.(Exception: Ronald McDonald House does collect pull tabs. A million of them is worth about $366 and would fill zip lock bags that would also cost about 366 dollars)

And here's a link to the updated newspaper article which reports that the bottle cap collection is a hoax:
