Coke Launches Lighter Bottles That Use Less Plastic

Coca-Cola Co said Tuesday it launched a new 20-ounce plastic bottle for its cola drinks that uses 5 percent less plastic, in a bid to please some critics of the beverage industry who claim its reliance on plastic aides global warming.
Last week the Wall Street Journal reported that Coke was planning to build a plant that will be able to recycle as many as 2 billion 20-ounce bottles a year, but that Coke declined to say exactly where the plant would be or when it would open.

Haase Comments: Better late than never... Now what do you think Coke will do about the millions of tons of CO2 pumped into bottling soda ;-)
