After use, the replacement cap can be recycled alongside the bottle, and it won’t fall off while you’re on the road.
There is now the slogan “I am attached to recycle together” printed on the bottle cap.
Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Diet Coke, and Fanta Zero 500 ml bottles will first sport the tops, with full rollout across all Coca-Cola brands and pack sizes scheduled for the year 2024.
CCEP’s East Kilbride Scotland bottling factory was the first to begin switching to attached caps on 1.5L bottles of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Diet Coke, and Fanta in May. The company’s bottle redesign will be introduced at its factory in Edmonton, North London.
When consumers recycle our bottles, the caps stay attached and don’t get left behind as litter,” said Stephen Moorhouse, vice president and general manager of Coca-Cola Europacific Partners in Great Britain.
‘We know British consumers want to dispose of packaging in the proper way, and we want to assist them in doing so,’ the company said. We’re excited to announce this shift, and promise to keep working to develop new, environmentally friendly methods for you to enjoy our products.
“It’s excellent to see Coca-Cola Great Britain, a UK Plastics Pact member, expanding the roll out of tethered caps on their bottles to assist guarantee that as much plastic as possible is recovered and recycled,” said Adam Herriott, Sector Specialist at WRAP. When it comes to recycling, the greater the quality of the material, the more of an impact the little things have. We hope that further developments in this field will help the United Kingdom achieve its goal of a 70 percent recycling rate for plastics by the year 2025.
