The new bottle is made with 50 percent less plastic, which could help eliminate an estimated 75 million pounds of plastic annually, according to a press release.

Aquafina, which is owned by PepsiCo, is further reducing the environmental footprint of its water by eliminating cardboard base pads from its 24-packs. The company says this move will save 20 million pounds of corrugated material by 2010.

Here is a video that Aquafina put together.

A 20-percent reduction in plastic used to make Pepsi’s 500ml flavored non-carbonated beverage bottles was a previous milestone.

PepsiCo’s most recent CSR report came out in January.
