Sugar Helps Odwalla Get A Little Greener
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.
