The ever profitable Coca Cola company has always tried to pride themselves on being a ‘green’ company. Recently its been discovered that the materials used for the production of Coca Cola’s bottles, claiming to be green, but had no evidence to back up their environmentally conscience claim. Coca Cola claims that they’ve manufactured their bottles partially from plant based materials. This has been a simple marketing ploy in order to have consumers believe that Coca Cola is an environmentally friendly company. Some other things that Coca Cola has been called out about is their excessive use of the word ‘plant’, and their use of the arrow logo promoting recyclability. They use these easy tactics to reinforce their reduced carbon footprint. However, there is no science or documentation whatsoever to back these environmentally friendly claims. Plant bottles claim to have up to 30% plant based material. Unfortunately there is less than 15% of plant based material in Coca Cola bottles: a percentage that hardly makes these Coca Cola bottles green.
