“Coca-Cola made headlines in 2009 when it introduced the PlantBottle, a beverage bottle made from petroleum-based materials and 30% plant-based materials. The company’s ultimate goal has been to make a 100% plant-based bottle—but now PepsiCo has beaten it to the punch. PepsiCo announced this week that it has figured out how to make fully recyclable, 100% plant-based bottles from switch grass, pine bark and corn husks. Eventually, the company plans to use oat hulls, potato and orange peels, and a variety of other agricultural by-products from its Quaker and Tropicana brands.” (via PepsiCo to Coke: Our 100% PlantBottle Is 70% Plantier Than Your PlantBottle | Fast Company)
