Coke plans to use more plant-based resin

Coca-Cola Co. intends to use less secondary packaging and produce more of its bottles from plant-based materials, according to the company’s seventh Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (CRS) report. The report, titled “How can a drink build a more sustainable tomorrow?” includes how the company is attempting to remove the cardboard trays from cases of small PET bottles, which it said will save 4,481 tons of corrugated cardboard per year or 14 percent of the total used by Coca-Cola.
