Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s theatrical release is just a few days away on December 20th, and there’s been plenty of promotional items released, but none as cool-looking as these Coca-Cola bottles, which feature Rey and Kylo Ren. Not just any bottles, these have lightsabers that illuminate when the labels are touched, thanks to flexible OLEDs.
Coca-Cola has revealed the first ever sample bottle made using recovered and recycled plastics from the sea. The ultimate goal would be to take ocean debris and use it in recycled packaging for food or drinks. So far, the company has made 300 sample bottles using 25% recycled marine plastic, retrieved from the Mediterranean Sea and beaches. These ‘enhanced recycling’ technologies show the potential of transforming previously used plastics of any quality back to the high-quality needed for food-grade packaging.
