This #GreenBottleCap sponsored post has been compensated on behalf of Dasani and The Coca-Cola Company. As always, my creamy/crunchy opinions are my own.
My youngest started preschool this year. And just like that I entered into a world filled with dietary restrictions and prepackaged demands. So when lunch does call for disposable options, I’m glad we’re covered with Dasani.
On the crunchy/creamy scale of eco-friendliness, I’d wager I’m 60/40. Over time as the kids get older I’m certain that number will go up. But life gets busy and as a single parent I do depend on disposable plates, cups, and water bottles. And that isn’t the required prepackaged food items for school that ensure every student follows dietary restrictions.
I’ve simply found what works for us. And in utilizing an excellent recycling program in my city, I do look for things that I can easily recycle. Which made me very happy to find that Dasani water bottles are utilizing PlantBottle™ packaging for its bottles now. Which you can easily recognize on the shelf, by their green cap.
So just what is this great new pioneering business solution? Well, its pretty enlightening on the sustainability front.
“PlantBottle packaging™ uses patented technology that converts natural sugars found in plants into the ingredients for making fully recyclable PET plastic bottles. The packaging looks, functions and recycles like traditional PET but has a lighter footprint on the planet and its resources.” ~ The Coca-Cola Co.
By the year 2020, all new PET plastic bottles from The Coca-Cola Company will use this PlantBottle™ technology. With 35+ billion packages already being distributed with it. My recent 6-pack of Dasani was made with up to 30% plants and is 100% recyclable. The overall goal being to achieve the manufacture of plastic bottles created from entirely off of plant based materials.
How do you utilize and/or recycle the disposable waste from school lunches?
