In UK convenience stores, Coca-Cola is removing labels from Sprite bottles to cut down on packaging materials and making recycling simple.

Sprite and Sprite Zero 500ml bottles in Tesco Express stores in select cities will undergo the label-less trial for three months, from January to March. Bottles will use an embossed logo on the front of the pack and the back will feature laser-engraved product information.
