Coca-Cola Creates Modular System To Reuse Plastic Bottles

(Video Link)

Plastic waste is a huge problem in the world today, with recycling centers struggling to figure out what to do with all the plastic bottles being thrown away every day and landfills filling up with waste that won’t degrade for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.

So what do we do with all those leftover plastic bottles? Coca-Cola has come up with a very creative way to reuse their plastic bottles- the 2ndLives cap system.

2ndLives is a set of 16 screw on sprayers, marker tips, pencil sharpeners and other useful objects that can be attached to the top of any plastic soda bottle, essentially upcycling the plastic waste and giving it new life.

So far the bottle tops are only being distributed (for free) in Vietnam, with Indonesia and Thailand to start receiving them soon, and hopefully they'll soon make their way to the U.S. because they look like a great idea!

It's not a good idea to put non-food substances in former food containers. Especially if the appearance is similar. Even other foods can cause problems, nuoc mam for example.
