Coca-Cola is doubling the amount of recycled plastic in its British drinks bottles to 50%, the company has announced.
All 20 of Coca-Cola drinks brands in the UK (including Sprite, Fanta, Smartwater and Schweppes) will move from 25% recycled plastic in their bottles to 50% by 2020.
The increase will involve a new deal with Clean Tech, which operates Europe’s largest plastic bottle reprocessing plant, in Lincolnshire, and see Coca-Cola sourcing all of the recycled plastic it uses from within Britain.
Once bottles have been collected and recycled they will return to shop shelves as part of new packs in as little as six weeks, the company said.
