The Coca-Cola Company unveiled their brand-new PlantBottle packaging, “the first-ever fully recyclable plastic beverage bottle produced using plants”, for Dasani water and Odwalla juice.
What is PlantBottle packaging?
PlantBottle packaging is 100 percent recyclable packaging that combines petroleum-based materials with up to 30% plant-based materials, specifically 100% renewable sugarcane-based ethanol from Brazil.
“Traditional PET bottles are made from petroleum and other nonrenewable fossil fuels. Incorporating a blend of petroleum-based materials with up to 30 percent plant-based materials allows PlantBottle packaging for DASANI to reduce potential intrinsic carbon dioxide emissions when compared with PET plastic bottles.”
Here’s the commercial.
