As long as we can remember, Sprite has always come packaged in green bottles, whether glass or plastic. My favorite beverage of all time, Fresca, also, has always come in a green bottle! In an effort to become more sustainable, the Coca-Cola Company has announced that all of their beverage packaging will come in clear plastic beginning August 1st. This means no more green bottles!
Green plastic has to be sorted from other plastics and is used in single use items like clothing or carpeting, taking it out of the circular economy for recycled plastics.
