Coca-Cola Pledges To Make Bottles Out Of 50% Recycled Plastic By 2020

By

Not long ago, Coca Cola's UK branch announced that by 2020, all of its soda bottles released in the UK would contain at least 40 percent recycled plastic. Now, Coca Cola has increased that goal by ten percent. This means that by 2020, half the plastic in all UK Coca Cola bottles will be recycled plastic. 

This is no doubt good news for the environment. Because plastic is not biodegradable, it is one of the biggest contributors to landfill overcrowding, and general pollution. According to figures obtained by The Guardian, global sales of plastics are slated to rise to half a trillion a year by 2021, including  over 580 billion plastic bottles, which could ultimately leave humanity facing an environmental crisis.
