Instead of making brand new plastic bottles for some of their drinks, they’ve opened a plant which allows them to produce 2 billion bottles from recycled plastic.I’ll take any chance I get to remind people to watch the amazing documentary Garbage Island, and this story about Coke’s new bottle-to-bottle plastic recycling plant happens to work. Basically, instead of making brand new plastic bottles for some of their drinks (which, keep in mind, include everything from Coke to Dasani water), they’ve opened a plant which allows them to produce 2 billion bottles from recycled plastic. So, even though 75% of plastic bottles are ending up in landfills or worse, the new bottle-to-bottle plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, is going to cut down on the number of new bottles that need to be created. Too bad there wasn’t a way to get away from bisphenol-A altogether.
