Always the green thing

Posted on 15 May 2009 by The Manufacturer

Coca-Cola has announced it is to start using a bottle made out of plant material for some of its products in a bid to green up.

The biggest drinks company in the world said it has developed a process which turns sugar cane and molasses into plastic.

The 100% recyclable bottle will be released in selected North American markets later this year and will be used for Coca-Cola’s Dasani brand water and certain sparkling products. Its vitaminwater range – already established in the USA and recently rolled out in Britain – will begin using the ‘Plantbottle’ next year.
