At the World Expo in Milan, Italy, on June 3, 2015, The Coca-Cola Company (Coca-Cola) unveiled the world's first 100% plant material polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottle. Coca-Cola has been using the 30% plant material PlantBottle™ since 2009, so this is the first bottle that is made completely from renewable materials while functioning exactly as a traditional PET bottle. It is estimated that the previous iteration of the PlantBottle™ reduced carbon dioxide emissions by more than 315,000 metric tons when used by brands, including Coca-Cola and Smartwater. While the new PlantBottle™ does not have a timeline for when it will be widely available, Coca-Cola plans to continue to invest in the new packaging and continuing partnerships with biotechnology companies like Virent.

Bottled versus tap water fact sheet
Where does bottled water come from?Those beautiful mountain illustrations on water bottles are often very far from the true source of the water inside. Bottled water sources can be hard to track down, as bottled water manufacturers are not required to disclose where the water comes from or for that matter, what’s in their water. In fact, the best indicator of what kind of water is in the bottle is from the terms used to describe it. Artesian, ground, spring or well water was taken from an underground...
Effect of NaCl on antimony and phthalate compounds leached from PET bottles
Nowadays polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles are commonly used as food containers as they are lightweight. PET bottles contain antimony (Sb) and phthalate compounds. In contact with food, antimony and phthalate molecules could migrate from the inner surface of a PET bottle to the food. Therefore, we studied the effect of NaCl concentration in PET bottles on the leakage of antimony and phthalates. It was found that the concentration of antimony leached into the solution was about 6 ngl−1 after 5 days...
