Pepsico has announced a new bottle made entirely of plant-based materials, a type of plastic distinct from traditional P.E.T. plastic, which is made from petroleum. The new bottle uses switch grass, pine bark, corn husks, and other plant matter, and is fully recyclable. Pepsi plans to use scraps and other leftovers from its food business in future versions of the container.

Brandeis International Business School has been named one of the best business schools in the U.S. to receive an education in green business. Brandeis has established the Global Green Initiative, a multidisciplinary program dedicated to the impact of environmental and social concerns on business strategy. The school also offers an MBA in Socially Responsible Business, known as the Global Green MBA, which integrates corporate governance and environmental studies into the core program. Based on a survey of 325 graduate schools of business, Brandeis was one of 16 selected for the honor by Entrepreneur Magazine and the Princeton Review.
