Coca-Cola announced the successful creation of 300 test bottles made from a portion of recycled marine plastic.
The soft drink company created a bottle made from 25 percent recycled plastic as part of its Joint Sustainability Action Plan, which was initially put into action in 2017. Reports indicate the bottles are the first of their kind. Coca-Cola considers these bottles a step towards their end goal of 100 percent recyclable bottles by 2025.
Coca-Cola uses about 200 thousand tons of virgin plastic each year. As many as 300 million tons of plastic is consumed globally each year.
