New Coca-Cola pollution-absorbing plant billboard along EDSA makes it to The Huffington Post
(SPOT.ph) The latest Coca-Cola Philippines' billboard along EDSA made The Huffington Post's Green section on June 28. The 60 x 60-foot billboard, unveiled on June 23, is padded with 3,600 young Fukien tea plants that open up to the iconic shape of the Coke bottle.
Partnering with the World Wildlife Fund, Coca-Cola Philippines constructed the billboard in conjunction with their "Live Positively" sustainability program. The Fukien tea plants are expected to grow quickly, completely covering the billboard surface and absorbing a total of 46,800 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The plants are contained in recycled bottles and sustained only with organic fertilizer.
