Coca-Cola cans promise to double the amount of recycled plastic in PET bottles!
 
According to foreign media reports, Coca-Cola's canner, Coca-Cola Amatil, promised to significantly increase the use of recycled plastics, and promised that by the end of 2019, 70% of Australia's plastic bottles will be made entirely of recycled plastic.

 

Coca-Cola claims that this will double the amount of recyclable plastic in its entire beverage line. The commitment includes all small packages of 600 ml and below, including brands such as Coca-Cola, Sprite, Fanta, Mount Franklin, and the 750-ml Pump brand.

 

According to data provided by Coca-Cola, the increase in the use of recycled plastics will reduce the amount of new plastic resin used by the company by approximately 10,000 tons per year from 2020.

 

This latest commitment is part of Coca-Cola's 2025 sustainability goals. Earlier this year, Coca-Cola also abandoned the use of plastic straws in Australia. Coca-Cola's goal is to achieve Australia's 2025 national packaging target for recyclable materials.

 

Vamsi Mohan Thati, President of Coca-Cola Australia, said: “As Australia's largest beverage company, we have a responsibility to help solve the plastic waste crisis. Therefore, by the end of 2019, 70% of our plastic bottles will be made entirely of recycled plastic.”

 

“This is a major commitment to recycled plastics, which is Australia's largest recycling plastics company, which will greatly reduce the environmental impact of our business.”

 

Peter West, Managing Director of Coca-Cola Amatil Australia Beverage added: "We have clearly heard the voice of the community, unnecessary packaging is unacceptable, we need to do our part to reduce plastic packaging nationwide."

 

This is the largest increase in the use of recycled plastics in Coca-Cola history, and is the most powerful step for Coca-Cola to reduce the environmental impact of packaging waste and Coca-Cola business.
