Plastic Waste – Recyclable Paper Bottle under Development

According to a July 14, 2020 news release “… PepsiCo has joined the consortium of global consumer goods companies … to further develop and scale the world’s first recyclable paper bottle … This new bottle is made from sustainably sourced pulp to meet food-safe standards and is being designed to be fully recyclable in standard waste streams. The goal of the consortium is to ensure that the technology is developed so it can be used across industries … Through this innovative effort, PepsiCo is taking another step towards our goal of reducing virgin plastic content across our beverage business by 35% by 2025. We are also working to make 100% of our packaging recyclable, compostable, or biodegradable by 2025–and we are about 90% complete. Through this partnership and continued efforts, we continue to drive progress toward a circular economy where plastics need never become waste by focusing on Reducing, Recycling, and Reinventing our packaging for consumers …” #PlasticWaste #Recycling #PepsiCo #SingleUsePlastic
