I heard about this patent back when it was first conceived. Although my
recolections may be hazy, this is what I remember: I think the idea was
abandoned because of the expense of manufacturing it. I think the double
layor was necessary to keep the Coke away from the recycled plastic. I
remember there was an issue about the sanitation of recycled plastic,
because plastic is recycled a low temperatures.
