REVOLUTION IN PACKAGING MATERIALSMarch 28th, 2011 | Posted by in Environmental
After a near continuous stream of new fruits and sweeteners, now it is the turn of new packaging materials.
The biggest of these innovations are Coca-Cola’s PlantBottle, Danone’s Bio-PET and PepsiCo’s Green Bottle.
Two more appeared in the 10th March issue of French trade journal LSA.
- Danone’s Actimel bottles are switching to entirely plant based materials in Belgium, France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
- Brita is trialling a reusable 50cl water bottle which is wholly plant based and biodegradable.
“Fini le pétrole !” commented LSA. I suspect that’s still a long way off.
