Coca-Cola Plans To Replace Its Plastic Bottles With Paper Ones

While Coca-Cola is able to use paper to make the bottle's outer layer, the inside still needs a plastic layer so that the drink doesn’t damage the paper.

Coca-Cola has always been one of the world’s biggest contributors to plastic waste. The charity “Break Free From Plastic” ranked the company 1st in the list of plastic polluters. However, it seems like the famous beverage manufacturer wants to change that.

Coca-Cola has recently announced that it would be using paper bottles instead of plastic ones. The company has worked with Paboco to search for alternatives using paper to make bottles.

Coca-Cola’s EMEA R&D Packaging Innovation Manager, Stijn Franssen, explained that the goal of the company was to make a paper bottle, that, like any other type of paper, could be recycled. A paper bottle offers the company a whole new range of packaging possibilities.

Unfortunately, the paper bottle hasn’t been completed yet. While the company is able to use paper to make the outer layer, the inside still needs a plastic layer so that the drink doesn’t damage the paper. The cap as well as the capping area is still made using plastic.

However, according to Franssen, the plastic that Coca-Cola uses is 100% recycled plastic. And after use, it can be recycled again. The next step of the company is to find a way to make a bottle that doesn’t need a plastic liner.

These are parts of the company’s initiative in which it plans to collect every plastic bottle or cans sold and recycle them by 2030. It will surely change the way products have always been manufactured, reducing the use of new plastic and increasing the use of 100% recyclable materials.
