The juice brand is switching to a "PlantBottle," where at least 96% of the bottle's material will come from a combination of sugar and molasses juice.

Odwalla has recently announced that its single serving drinks will move to a PlantBottle, where at least 96% of the bottle’s material will come from a combination of sugar and molasses juice. Green Biz reports:

The bottles that Odwalla will use will be at least 96 percent, and up to 100 percent, plant-based HDPE (a commonly-recycled plastic identified by resin code #2). The bottles are recyclable in systems that already take HDPE.

Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) introduced the PlantBottle in 2009, initially testing PET (resin code #1, also commonly recycled) versions of the PlantBottle on Dasani and sparking water. Currently, though, the PET version can only contain up to 30 percent plant-based material.

Coke has since expanded its use of the PlantBottle, estimating that 2.5 billion will be used by the end of the year, and aims to double that amount next year.
