Coke and Pepsi continue to outdo one another when it comes to plant-based bottles. This time Odwalla, a division of Coca-Cola, will be using 100 percent plant-based bottles for its juice products.
The bottles are made with high density polyethylene, which has been created using sugarcane grown in Brazil. Another Coke product, Dasani, will also be using a similar material for its bottles, though it will only make up 30 percent of the bottle, much like the Heinz PlantBottle.
“The PlantBottle” packaging represents a significant step in Odwalla’s ongoing sustainability efforts to protect our planet” said company president Alison Lewis.
THe new bottles will be 100 percent recyclable, and are available on store shelves right now.
