Coca-Cola joins Pepsi in scrapping plastic bottles for cans

Coca-Cola is following its competitor PepsiCo’s lead and will soon sell their popular water brand, Dasani, in aluminum cans. They will also begin lightweighting bottles to use less plastic, incorporate plant-based plastics and add “How2Recycle” labels to their cans and bottles in an effort to boost recycling and curb pollution. The new commitments come after Coca-Cola revealed it produced 3.3 million tons of plastic in 2017. Learn more about the initiatives.
