Pepsi bot­tles made of plants

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

PEPSI has un­veiled its lat­est weapon in its nev­erend­ing cor­po­rate war with Coca-Cola – a bot­tle made en­tirely of plant ma­te­rial. The bot­tle is made from ma­te­ri­als in­clud­ing switch grass, pine bark and corn husks. Pepsi hopes to use orange peel, oat husks, potato scraps and other left­overs from its food busi­ness. It claims the in­no­va­tion beats the tech­nol­ogy of its ri­val and re­duces its po­ten­tial car­bon foot­print. It plans to test the prod­uct next year.
