If you’ve ever traveled through Central America, you probably know that the standard to-go cup at any convenience store or roadside stand is usually a plastic baggie. Noticing this trend, an anonymous designer not associated with Coca Cola has created an eco-friendly plastic bag in the shape of a coke bottle for El Salvador. The affordable, biodegradable bag retains the brand image with a green twist. Check out the video after the jump!

Editor’s Note: Coca Cola has since disclosed a statement about this video:

Currently, there is no presentation of Coca-Cola in plastic bags in any country of Central America (“Coca-Cola Bag”). Recently, a video was circulated on different social networks, which suggests the existence of this presentation in the market. In this regard, it is necessary to clarify that The Coca-Cola Company is not the author of the video and is not responsible for its dissemination. The Company currently distributes Coca-Cola in Central America countries in cans, plastic PET and glass.
