The new Odwalla package will help to reduce dependence on non-renewable resources

The Coca-Cola Co subsidiary Odwalla is to transfer all of its single-serve bottles to PlantBottle packaging.

The health beverage firm said today (21 October) that the transition to the 100% plant-based material and 100% recyclable bottles will take place in March next year.

The new Odwalla package will help to reduce dependence on non-renewable resources, the unit said.

"PlantBottle packaging is just the latest step in our continued commitment to the environment," said Alison Lewis, president of Odwalla. "The redesigned plastic represents a significant step in our sustainability efforts and in protecting the planet."

Coca-Cola opened talks to acquire the California-based juice firm back in 2001.
