Schools struggling to meet carbon footprint targets are about to be offered a shortcut - the chance to dress their pupils in a uniform made entirely from old Coca-Cola bottles.

Britain's first line in completely recycled polymer jackets and trousers goes on sale next week from an outlet in Yorkshire which previously pioneered the waterproof, odour-resistant blazer.

The company's patented Ducksback waterproof blazers have benefited from the same trend and have been credited with reducing the pong of slowly drying, rain-soaked teenagers.
