We’re determined to continue our commitment to radically change our relationship with packaging and are seeking further solutions to radically improve the sustainability of our drinks packaging. What is the future of sustainable drinks packaging? How can we radically improve the sustainability of our drinks packaging and eliminate or reduce the environmental impact of our current use of plastics?
Current soft drinks packaging uses significant amounts of plastic, and although we’re making great progress on improving the recyclability of our current plastic packaging, we’re looking to make even more significant progress to radically reduce the environmental impact of our packaging for our drinks.
