Colored Bottles Phased Out

Last week, Coca-Cola announced that Sprite will no longer be sold in green bottles. Starting in early August packaging will change to clear bottles as part of the company’s recycling commitment. The green bottles contain green polyethylene terephthalate (PET) which is an additive that cannot be recycled into new bottles. Removing the colorant will provide a more circular economy for plastic. Several consumer product companies have announced significant environmental initiatives and pledged to take steps to encourage plastic recycling. Other beverage brands will follow suit shortly and be sold in clear plastic bottles.
