In our previous blog, we highlighted the situation that has arisen regarding Recycled Rubbish. Just two of many major companies have vowed to become even more environmentally friendly.
These are their stories…
Coca-Cola to double amount of recycled plastic in its bottles by 2020
Coca-Cola is to increase the amount of recycled plastic in its bottles to 50 percent, the company has announced – a doubling of the current amount of 25 percent. The new target will be reached by 2020 and comes as drinks manufacturers face increasing pressure to make their products more environmentally friendly. One million plastic bottles are purchased worldwide every minute – a total of 480 billion each year. Around 100 billion of these are thought to be Coca-Cola bottles.
The company, whose brands include Fanta, Sprite, Oasis, Lilt, and Schweppes in addition to its traditional cola drink, said it will invest millions of pounds in buying recycled plastic from “Europe’s largest and most advanced plastic bottle recycling facility” in Lincolnshire in order to meet its new target.
It means a Coca-Cola bottle could be recycled and returned to the shelf in its new form within six weeks.
