Coca-Cola SA launches new 2L returnable bottle made of PET plastic
Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa (CCBSA) announced that it ha slaunched a new piolet project by introducing new 2L returnable bottles made of PET plastic that can be reused up to 14 times.
How it works, is that when a bottle is returned to Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa, it will go on a looped journey to be cleaned to Coca-Cola’s stringent measures and requirements, then refilled and start its next life-cycle.
When the bottle reaches the end of its 14 useable lifecycles, after being returned to Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa it will be recycled and turned into another PET plastic bottle.
The returnable bottles are made of PET plastic and are labelled with a new paper label, with ‘returnable’ appearing in green on the front of the bottle.
The rollout is being piloted in the Mandela Bay and Border-Kei districts in the Eastern Cape and, if successful, is expected to be rolled out to the rest of the country.
The recommended retail price for the 2L Coca-Cola Original Taste – Less Sugar beverage is R15, which excludes a R9 deposit.
Other brands, like Coca-Cola No Sugar, Sprite and Fanta, are also available in the new 2L returnable PET plastic bottle at a recommended retail price of R12 excluding the R9 deposit.
