Coca-Cola Co.--Sprite's parent company, in an announcement on Wednesday, said that the new look will be available on August 1 as part of a plan to "support an eco-friendly economy for the plastic used in packaging."
The green plastic of today is made up of polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) and is typically transformed into items of single-use, like clothes and carpets.
However, the company stated that it is much easier for clear bottles to be reused rather than green bottles for new bottles.
Julian Ochoa, chief executive officer of R3CYCLE -- a recycling company which works with Coca-Cola Consolidated, said in an announcement Wednesday.
The soft drink made of lemon and lime is available in a green color since its first launch in the US in the year 1961.
