Plastic is a big problem. It damages the environment, pollutes rivers and oceans, and kills wildlife. It takes hundreds of years to disappear. Many companies want to replace plastic with other things. Coca-Cola is working with a company called Paboco to make a paper bottle. It wants to stop using plastic for its drinks bottles. It was the world's number one plastic polluter in 2019. In one year, Coca-Cola uses three million tons of plastic packaging.

Paboco thinks plastic packaging may disappear one day. Coca-Cola executives said: "Our vision is to create a paper bottle that can be recycled like any other type of paper. A paper bottle opens up a whole new world of packaging possibilities...in the future." Coca-Cola will one day use only packaging from renewable sources. These will be recyclable and sustainable. Coca-Cola said this was "right" for consumers and for our planet.
