OUR NEW INITIATIVE:
TOGETHER, WE’RE COMMITTED TO GETTING EVERY BOTTLE BACK
Our plastic bottles are made to be remade. We are carefully designing them to be 100% recyclable – even the caps. Our goal is for every bottle to become a new bottle, and not end up in oceans, rivers, beaches and landfills. And that means we are using less new plastic.
That’s why America’s beverage companies have launched a new initiative to get Every Bottle Back. This unprecedented commitment includes:
• Working with World Wildlife Fund through the ReSource: Plastic initiative to reduce our plastic footprint.
• Partnering with The Recycling Partnership and Closed Loop Partners to improve recycling access, provide education to residents and modernize the recycling infrastructure in communities across the country.
• Increasing awareness about the value of our 100% recyclable plastic bottles.
• Introducing a new voluntary on-pack message to promote the recyclability of our plastic bottles and caps.

Investing in Our Communities
We are working in communities across the country to reduce plastic in the environment by investing in state-of-the art infrastructure upgrades, expanding access to curbside recycling and supporting community education efforts. We’re partnering with local governments and national and community leaders to ensure our investments meet the unique needs of communities and help achieve our goal of getting Every Bottle Back.

All Plastic Isn’t the Same
What makes our bottles unique is what they’re made from. It’s a light and strong plastic material called PET that’s in high demand because it’s 100% recyclable and can easily be remade into new plastic bottles and many other everyday products.
When we get our plastic bottles back, they can be used by our beverage companies to make new bottles.
Our bottles are unique because they were designed to be used again and remade into something new, and not end up in oceans, rivers, beaches and landfills. PET is not a single-use plastic, or, our bottles are not single use plastic.
Supporting Community Recycling
We are partnering with The Recycling Partnership and Closed Loop Partners to help collect our valuable bottles through community recycling programs so they can be recycled. Learn how we’re working together to make recycling easier for consumers.
