Pepsi’s New “Green” Bottle

Pepsico made waves last month as they unveiled their “Skinny Can” for Diet Pepsi. Now Pepsi has revealed a new container, but this one is getting press for the right reasons. Pepsi’s new plastic bottle is completely made out of plant material.

The container is the world’s first 100% plant-based PET bottle, and is actually made of switch grass, pine bark, corn husks and a variety of other natural materials. The bottle is also 100% recyclable and petroleum-free. While I haven’t held the bottle yet, Pepsi reports that the bottle feels and protects the bottle the same way as the old plastic version.
