Limiting CO2 emissions to the atmosphere is already a standard among global concerns. Unfortunately, this is not enough to better care for the environment. That is why Coca-Cola decided to go a step further and use its customers to make itself a greener company and to give us the satisfaction that we are doing something important for Mother Nature.
Engineers from Coca-Cola and the Danish company Paboco designed and created a new, eco-friendly bottle that will soon be selling carbonated drinks. The first prototype is 30 percent paper, but the target is 100 percent. It will not be easy to create such a packaging, but the engineers do not lose hope.
“Our goal is to create a paper bottle that can be recycled exactly like any other type of paper. This prototype is the first step towards achieving this Epic Movie News goal. The paper bottle offers completely new possibilities and we are convinced that it will play a huge role in the future, ”said Stijn Franssen, innovation manager for packaging research and development at Coca-Cola.
Coca-Cola wants to completely eliminate plastics in its bottles. There is still a long way to go, but despite this fact, the concern intends to increase the recycling of its cans and bottles in the next 10 years. The plan is to recycle as much packaging as is produced at the same time. It should also be emphasized that the first prototype of a paper bottle can now be fully recycled.
