Coca-Cola Goes Green in Plant-based Bottle

The Wall Street Journal reports that Coca-Cola has unveiled its plant-based bottle in an effort to be environmentally friendly. The container has "the same weight, the same feel, the same chemistry, and functions exactly the same way" as a regular plastic bottle, a Coke spokeswoman says.

Coke touted its "plantbottle" at the Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen last month, and it plans another push next month at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, where all the sodas and water it provides will be packaged in the plantbottle. "Preliminary research" shows the new container leaves a smaller carbon footprint than regular plastic bottles, Coke says.
