In something of an attempt to reduce the amount of plastic bottles piling up in landfills, the city of Concord has placed a ban on single-serving bottled water unless it comes in a glass container...or any other plastic besides PET...or it it's sparkling water. Don't worry, we really aren't sure whats going on here either.

Next step beyond sustainability of the bottle! Nice PR opportunity. Would be a good idea for water companies as well . .

Coca-Cola's Give It Back racks a nod to sustainability commitment

By Allison Cerra:

Coca-Cola has developed 100% recyclable display racks for use in U.S. grocery and convenience stores. The new Give It Back racks are stand-alone units made of easily recyclable corrugated cardboard, Coca-Cola said. The soft drink giant said the merchandise displays expand its commitment to sustainability. The racks currently are being tested in select markets and are expected to become widely available in late 2011.

Plastics News

This is a good article for bottled water folks to read on challenges we all face with suggestions on how to convey a message to consumers.

"For example, only 22.5 percent identified polycarbonate as a potential candidate for leaching bisphenol A. Nearly 60 percent weren’t sure what products BPA could leach from, while 28 percent said polyethylene plastics leach BPA, 23 percent said polypropylene could do so, and 9 percent said aluminum cans coated with water-based epoxy could leach BPA."

Does this video look familiar? It’s a re-cut of the IBWA InterBev video “Bottled Water: The Big Picture.” This shorter version highlights our environmental and recycling efforts. We call it “Bottled Water Recycles” and it was produced specifically for our sponsorship corner of the “plastic bottles” section of www.Earth911.com which is slated to debut tomorrow. It’s posted on YouTube for easy tracking. So give it a look and please put your thumb in the air. Every click counts and every ‘thumbs’ up’ counts even more.
