The Coca-Cola Company received high honours at the 22nd annual global DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation. The company's PlantBottle packaging earned a gold award, out of more than 160 global entrants in the overall program for its demonstrated breakthrough packaging innovation. Made of up to 30% plant-based material, PlantBottle packaging is a natural step toward the bottle of the future. It's the first of its kind - beverage packaging made from renewable sources that is 100% recyclable, like traditional PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic. PlantBottle packaging can be recycled in the existing commercial recycling infrastructure.
