New Sprite bottle aims to reduce plastic waste

(CNN BUSINESS) — In an effort to improve it’s impact on the environment, Coca-Cola announced Wednesday it will change Sprite packaging from green to clear.  The move is a big step in reducing plastic waste.

The green bottle has polyethylene terephthalate(PET) which cannot be recycled into new bottles.

The change begins Monday and will be followed by other Coca-Cola products Fresca, Seagram’s, and Mello-Yello.
