CBC Switches to Environmentally Friendly Dasani ‘Plant Bottle’


New Dasani Plant Bottles

The Caribbean Bottling Company (CBC) is committed to supporting Bahamian environmental preservation projects, and has implemented a number of recycling and waste reduction programs in recent years. The company will continue its support of environmentally conscious initiatives with the introduction of the Dasani PlantBottle™.

The new, green-capped, bottle will replace the existing Dasani bottle. The 12oz and 20oz Dasani packages will also be the first-ever, fully recyclable plastic beverage bottle made partially from plants. The bottle looks and functions just like traditional plastic, but has a lighter footprint on the planet and its resources.

PlantBottle™ packaging will ultimately reduce the dependence on fossil fuels and will increase the use of renewable materials. To date, more than 35 billion PlantBottle™ packages have been distributed in nearly 40 countries. The technology has enabled CBC and other international Coca-Cola beverage bottlers to minimize carbon dioxide emissions and significantly reduce the usage of petroleum products.

The Caribbean Bottling Company is an active supporter of activities that aim to preserve the environment. In addition to being a proud supporter of the Cans For Kids program, which rewards schools for every aluminum can that they collect, CBC has a number of ongoing waste reduction and recycling projects.

“We all have to do our part to preserve the environment” noted Nikia Wells, CBC Marketing Manager- Communications. “The introduction of the Dasani Plant Bottle is just one of many projects and initiatives that we support in an effect to reduce our environmental footprint and recycle resources, whenever possible. In addition to our water conservation efforts, CBC has been recycling our wooden pallets and scrap cardboard for several years now. We also have recycling bins at our facilities, and we are dedicated to taking part in events and activities that can encourage our fellow Bahamians to make small changes that can greatly impact our environment.”

In early 2018, The Coca-Cola Company announced a massive global ambition to recycle all of its packaging by 2030. As the official bottler of Coca-Cola beverages in the Bahamas, the Caribbean Bottling Company will continue to look for new and innovative ways to make that goal a reality, in the Bahamas.
