The Soft Drink Container Gets Square, Green

 |  |  |  |  |  |  March 23, 2010

When it comes to getting drinks the only things that come in square containers are juice boxes and milk. Huey Lewis always said it was hip to be square, and this new design concept for green Coke bottles has turned up on Yanko Design that is pretty hip.

Square Coke Bottles

The concept is very cool, taking the roundish 20-ounce coke bottles we’re used to, and making then into rectangles that take up less space and are stackable. From eyeing the things, I am betting that if the bottles really went square, you could fit more of them into the cooler at the store too.

The downside is that the bottles obviously wouldn’t work in vending machines where the drinks roll out the trap door on the bottom. According to the designer, the square bottles would be made of 100% recycled sugar cane byproducts and the cap would be 25% slimmer. The bottle also collapses down when empty to 66% smaller than its full size.
