Coca-Cola has produced the world’s first PET plastic bottle made entirely from plant materials. PlantBottle packaging is Coke’s plant-based alternative to packaging traditionally made from fossil fuels and other non-renewable materials. PlantBottle packaging uses patented technology that converts natural sugars found in plants into the ingredients for making PET plastic bottles. The packaging looks, functions and recycles like traditional PET.

PlantBottle packaging can be used for a variety of packaging sizes and across water, sparkling, juice and tea beverage brands. Today, the company uses sugarcane and waste from the sugarcane manufacturing process to create PlantBottle packaging.

Since the 2009 PlantBottle launch, Coke has distributed more than 35 billion bottles in nearly 40 countries using its current version of PlantBottle packaging, made from up to 30 percent plant-based materials. The company estimates the use of PlantBottle packaging since launch has helped save the equivalent annual emissions of more than 315,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide.
