[GreenYes] Recycled Content
According to the 3/19/01 Plastics News ("Western Grows to Meet Bottle-Water Demand"), Coca Cola's major bottle manufacturer, Western Container Corp (TX) is increasing its bottle preform injection capacity, and its President, Robert Tremblay, is quoted as saying "the new capacity also could mean increased production of recycled-content bottles. ... 'Our goal is to develop the ability to make half of our bottles with recycled content,'" he said. No specification is provided for what percent content he is expected in each bottle.
