Coca-Cola discloses how much plastic it uses
Mar 14, 2019
Coca-Cola has revealed how much plastic it uses in a year as part of a global initiative to make companies reduce the amount of plastic they use for packaging. Coca-Cola stated that it uses a total of 3 million tons a year in packaging, which is nearly the weight of 15,000 blue whales, but the company has pledged to recycle one bottle for every bottle it produces by 2030. The information is part of a report by the Ellen McArthur Foundation to push companies to do more regarding plastic pollution. Coca-Cola markets 500 brands worldwide, and it is working towards making all of its packaging recyclable.
