COCA-COLA IS INTRODUCING ITS FIRST BOTTLE MADE FROM 100% RECYCLED PLASTIC

Coca-Cola is launching a new bottle size for the first time in a decade, but it’s what the bottle’s made of that

marks an even more notable first: 100% recycled plastic material. The new 13.2-ounce recyclable bottle that

some customers will see on (28) ______ this week is made entirely of other plastics, and it’s the latest move in

Coca-Cola’s several-year (29) ______ to reduce its plastic waste. The new bottle will be available starting this

month in select states across the Northeast, including New York and Connecticut, as well as in California and

Florida, before launching nationwide this summer. Coke (30) ______ the size as a “more sippable package,” and

it will debut with the company’s most popular sodas like Coca-Cola, Diet Coke and Coke Zero Sugar at a

suggested retail price of $1.59. The 13.2-ounce size is slightly larger than its aluminum can option and smaller

than the (31) ______ 20-ounce bottle. Unique sizes like the 7.5-ounce mini can have garnered strong sales.

of love and great innovation” for Coca-Cola. The recycled plastic is cleaned, ground down and (32) ______ into

grain-like flakes before being transformed into a new bottle. She added that launch states were chosen because

and recycling one bottle or can for each one it sells. The new bottle, according to Sutaria, is a “big step in that

direction.” “We’re (36) ______ to innovate and to develop technology to minimize our impact,” she said, adding

RECLAIMING OUR CITY STREETS

How two experiments could help urban dwellers reclaim their streets from traffic.

Many city-dwellers around the world face a dilemma: despite living a relatively short distance from local shops

and services, a wide dual-carriageway has to be negotiated in order to get there. Whilst this poses few problems

for the vast majority of people, there are those who can only make it as far as half way with each push of the

pedestrian crossing button. Running out of milk has significant consequences.

In the Dutch city of Tilburg, ten people have been taking part in a trial of Crosswalk, a smartphone app that

gives pedestrians with limited mobility extra crossing time. This ground-breaking experiment enables

participants to cross the road in one go, without needing to dodge cars. A sensor in the traffic lights is

constantly on the lookout for anyone with Crosswalk on their phone. It scans both sides of the road and adjusts

the crossing time automatically, once a pedestrian carrying the app has been detected. Each user triggers a

specific time which is pre-installed onto their phone and varies according to their level of mobility. In this way,

delays to traffic are also minimised. The app works in combination with GPS and the software that operates the

traffic lights, thus getting around the need to install further devices to control the system.

The pilot project is part of a 25-year plan to make Tilburg’s road network more pedestrian and cycle-friendly.

Another system under development there senses when bikes are approaching a junction and changes the lights

sooner than it otherwise would, thereby giving cyclists priority over motorists. A logical extension of this

technology could trigger lights to green to let ambulance or fire crews pass through. Smart traffic lights can also

have environmental benefits, for example, by giving lorries a clear run through urban areas and reducing the

frequency with which they have to stop and start, they thereby reduce emissions, noise pollution and damage

to road surfaces. All of this seems a far cry from the majority of urban centres.

The applications of the technology are virtually limitless and could form a major weapon in the battle to

recapture city streets worldwide from motor vehicles and reduce pollution. To put this into context, in Barcelona,

which is anything but large relative to many modern urban sprawls, air pollution is estimated to cause around

3,500 premature deaths per year out of a population of 1.6 million. Additionally, it is responsible for severe

effects on ecosystems and agriculture. Traffic, which is the major contributor to this problem, also causes noise

pollution beyond levels considered healthy. Scaling this bleak picture up for larger metropolitan areas could be

bad for your health!

The World Health Organisation recommends that every city should have a minimum of 9 m2

 of green space per

resident. While some places come out well relative to this figure (London scores an impressive 27, and

Amsterdam an incredible 87.5), many do not. Tokyo currently has around 3 m2

 per person, and is far from alone

in providing insufficient ‘lungs’ for its population. Picture the effect on these figures of banning traffic from the

majority of a city’s streets and allowing these roads to be converted into community areas, such as parks and

pedestrian zones. Such a system, known as ‘superblocks’, is rapidly gaining support in many of the world’s

urban centres.

The idea has at its heart the notion that streets belong to people and not cars. Roads are repurposed within an

area known as a superblock, leaving only the streets around the perimeter accessible to vehicles. Taking up less

space than a neighbourhood, but larger than the blocks in many cities, their design ensures that no one would

ever be more than 300 m from a road. This may mean sacrificing the parking spaces assigned to properties

within them, but that’s a small price to pay. By increasing the frequency of bus stops on the surrounding streets

and applying smart traffic management technology as used in Tilburg, it would be possible to make public

transport more effective despite having significantly fewer vehicle-accessible roads. This could be paired with a

new system of cycling lanes in the areas off-limits to traffic.

Given that the majority of the world’s population now lives in an urban environment, imagine the number of

people who would benefit from this combination of ideas
