New Plastic-Like Packaging is Going Mainstream

Pepsi, Nestlé, and Bacardi are all incorporating PHA, a plant-based compostable alternative to plastic, in upcoming packaging.

“A new bottle in development for Bacardi looks like ordinary plastic. But if it ends up in a landfill or the ocean—or a backyard compost bin—the material will completely biodegrade. Called PHA, or polyhydroxyalkanoate, the plant-based material will soon start showing up in all kinds of packaging on store shelves.”

So, how does it work? Who else is using it? And what do the critics say?
