Just as the Shop & Carry® food wagon carries empty returnable bottles and cans to the store for deposits, customers will bring clear empty containers in their wagon . These containers with their empty weight imprinted on the front, can be filled with coffee, sugar, beans, cereal, and so on. The supermarket no longer has to supply plastic bags to package the unpacked product! Now add up the energy savings associated with just these three examples:
Less cardboard cereal boxes - Less cans for peanuts - Less jars for pickles
SAVING ENERGY TO MAKE AMERICA ENERGY INDEPENDENT !
WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY !
Through the immense connecting intra-structure, America will save on: gasoline, packaging, garbage removal, rectifying tomorrow's pollution problems that were created today, etc. For example, the change with truck deliveries due to less use of paper or plastic bags associated with metal wagons, could save as much gasoline as the law allowing Right Turns on Red Lights.
A FEW More EXAMPLES:

- Energy saved associated with metal wagon repairs and off site retrieval
- Energy saved with the gasoline used for power saws to cut down trees
- Energy saved with the diesel fuel a tugboat uses to push a garbage badge
- Less fuel needed for the manufacturing of paper and plastic bags used in supermarkets
- The energy used in the future to rectify the pollution problems created today.
