Coca-Cola announced a new recycling initiative that will collect and reuse 100 percent of its packaging by 2030.


The world's largest total beverage company intends to back a World Without Waste with a multi-year investment to implement their new recycling goal.

"The world has a packaging problem - and, like all companies, we have a responsibility to help solve it," James Quincey, President and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company, said. "Through our World Without Waste vision, we are investing in our planet and our packaging to help make this problem a thing of the past."

Coca-Cola said in their announcement that for every bottle or can the Coca-Cola system sells globally, they will take one back to be recycled.

The soda company also plans to work towards making its packaging 100 percent recyclable worldwide, with plans to make bottles with 50 percent recycled content by 2030.
