Pepsi reduces use of plastic in some bottles
Pepsi introduced its lightest 500mL flavored non-carbonated
beverage bottle after reducing the plastic content by 20%, which will
eliminate approximately 20 million pounds of waste from the environment.
The lighter bottles appeared on store shelves in May.
In addition to a 20% reduction in the plastic resin,
there will be a 10% reduction in the label size and a 5% reduction in
the shrink wrap film used to wrap the multi-packs.
