The next bottle of water Coca-Cola sells you as you might come in a can.
Starting next year, Coke plans to start offering its Dasani water in aluminum cans and bottles to make it more environmentally friendly.
The company hopes to collect and recycle the equivalent of every bottle or can it sells by 2030.
That’s a pretty lofty goal considering the soft drink giant produced 3.3 million tons of plastic in 2017.
Aluminum is easier to recycle than plastic, so moving customers away from plastic will likely help.
Dasani will still be available in plastic bottles but they’ll be lighter weight.
Coke also has plans for a new bottle made with up to 50 percent recycled plastic and plant-based materials.
