SeaWorld Taps Coca-Cola's Breakthrough PlantBottle Technology To Create First Consumer Cup

ORLANDO, Fla., July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Being green is oh-so refreshing. That was the message today as SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment debuted the first refillable plastic cup made from plant-based materials.  Now available in all SeaWorld ® and Busch Gardens parks across the U.S., the reusable, 100-percent recyclable plastic cup is manufactured using proprietary PlantBottle packaging technology from the company's beverage partner, Coca-Cola.

Being green is oh-so refreshing. That was the message today as SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment(TM) debuted the first refillable plastic cup made from plant-based materials.  Now available in all SeaWorld(R) and Busch Gardens parks across the U.S., the reusable, 100-percent recyclable plastic cup is manufactured using proprietary PlantBottle(TM) packaging technology from the company's beverage partner, Coca-Cola.

"Working together, our two companies are using our resources and reach to inspire people to make a difference," said SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment Corporate Vice President of Culinary Operations Andrew Ngo.  "Our friends at The Coca-Cola Company share our commitment to conservation, our passion for the planet, and our innovative approach to consumer experiences.  Even more important, this appeals to our guests, who expect and reward recycling and sustainability."

PlantBottle packaging swaps traditional plastic resins with natural sugars found in plants.  Fewer fossil-based ingredients mean a smaller carbon footprint. SeaWorld's switch to PlantBottle plastic in its refillable cups is expected to remove 35 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually -- the equivalent of saving more than 80 barrels of oil a year.
