PROMOTING RECYCLING

Recycling comes naturally to America’s beverage companies. We are making our plastic bottles 100% recyclable, including the caps. We’re carefully designing them this way for a simple reason: so our bottles can be used again and again. But there is always more to be done.

That’s why we’re supporting consumers and communities across the country in their efforts to improve recycling. Making it easier to recycle our plastic bottles means they’re more likely to be reused and less likely to end up in oceans, rivers, beaches and landfills.

More efficient recycling means less new plastic.

We are building our plastic bottles to be 100% recyclable, and that’s a critical first step. But it only helps the environment if we get them back. So we’re working hard to support strong recovery and recycling systems across the country.

Our industry partners with The Closed Loop Fund, Keep America Beautiful and The Recycling Partnership to donate recycling bins, improve recycling systems and invest in strengthening the recycling infrastructure. And we’ve invested time and money to make it easier to recycle in public spaces like parks, airports, sports venues and festivals because recycling shouldn’t stop when you leave home.

Saving Energy

Recycling ten plastic bottles saves enough energy to run a laptop for 25 hours. Learn more about how our industry is working to conserve energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Our Progress

We are producing 100% recyclable aluminum, plastic and glass beverage containers. Even our plastic caps can be recycled.

The Coca-Cola Company, Keurig Dr Pepper and PepsiCo have each given $5 million to The Closed Loop Fund to help improve recycling in the US.
