Coca-Cola tests paper bottle

SunnyLv 0Nov 24

Plastic is a big problem for the world. It is causing a lot of damage to our environment. It is polluting rivers and oceans and harming and killing wildlife. Plastic is a growing problem because it takes hundreds of years to break down. Many companies around the world are trying to replace plastic with other things. Coca-Cola has teamed up with a Danish start-up called the Paper Bottle Company to make a paper bottle. Coca-Cola hopes to completely stop using plastic for its drinks bottles.
