Coca-Cola and Carslberg beer are backing a project to manufacture plant-based bottles that will degrade within a year.
A Dutch company is working on a bottle that uses an outer cardboard layer and an inner plastic lining made from plant sugars. Both layers can be recycled separately and the whole thing will biodegrade within 12 months.
The hope is to have the bottles ready by 2023.
Would you buy Coke from a cardboard bottle? Could plant-based plastics be the next big thing?
