Seafoam Sea Glass: Where Does It Come From

Most seafoam sea glass shards come from old Coca-Cola bottles and other soda bottles, beer bottles, fruit jars, baking soda bottles, and ink bottles.

Because Coca-Cola bottles were so popular and difficult to transport, many were made locally around the world, so the green hue varied from soft green to soft green with a tint of blue.

While RC Cola and Dr. Pepper produced soda bottles in soft green for a time, many of bottles made in the soft green, seafoam color were manufactured by Coca-Cola beginning in the late 1800s to mid 1900s.
