Should we choose products based on their packaging?
The Coca-Cola company is testing a new paper bottle as part of a long-term strategy to remove plastic from its packaging. The sample bottle is made by a Danish company from an extra-strong paper shell that still contains a thin plastic liner. The overall ambition is to create a 100% recyclable, plastic-free bottle capable of preventing gas escaping from carbonated drinks.
We have a choice as to whether we buy drink bottles with recyclable packaging. Which drink we choose will have an effect on the amount of packaging that can be recycled and the amount that goes into landfill.
