Coca-Cola to replace Sprite green plastic bottle with clear one

Source: New York Post

“Coca-Cola announced that Sprite will stop using its famous green bottle and switch to clear plastic beginning in August. The change in look, ironically, is part of a push by the soft drink giant to go green. The company said clear plastic is better for recycling. … Sprite is just one of Coca-Cola’s brands to change their look for environmental purposes. Fresca, Seagram’s and Mello Yello will ditch the green, and Dasani water will also switch to a clear plastic bottle. The company said that while the green plastic is recyclable, the coloring keeps it from being used for food-grade packaging items. Instead, it is used for single-use items like clothing and carpet. By switching to clear, old bottles can be turned into new ones.” (07/28/22)
