You may remember a story we ran a few weeks ago about Pepsi’s new recycling campaign that is designed to reduce the waste of aluminum cans. Well, this week they have found a way to improve their non-carbonated plastic bottles too. All 500 mL bottles of Lipton Iced Tea, Tropicana Juice, Aquafina Flavorsplash and Aquafina Alive will contain 20% less plastic than their predecessors. There will also be a 10% reduction in the size of the label and a 5% reduction in the amount of shrink wrap used for multi-packs. Although the number of plastic bottles being used is still way too high, at least Pepsi is making an effort to reduce the impact their products are having on the environment.
