Sprite is set to retire its green plastic bottle

After 60 years and iconic marketing, Sprite is retiring its green plastic bottle, opting for a more eco-friendly container.

On Wednesday, Coca-Cola announced the change in packaging, which would begin on August 1st.

The current Sprite bottle contains green polyethylene terephthalate, an additive that can’t be recycled to create new bottles.
