Coca-Cola company launches first paper bottles in Hungary

Coca-Cola is to test a paper bottle as part of a longer-term bid to eliminate plastic from its packaging entirely and reach their goal of producing zero waste by 2030.

The packaging is made by a Danish company from an extra-strong paper shell that still contains a thin plastic liner, however the goal is to create a 100% recyclable, plastic-free bottle capable of preventing gas escaping from carbonated drinks.

Coca-Cola was ranked the world’s number one plastic polluter by charity group Break Free From Plastic last year, followed by other drink-producers Pepsi and Nestle, but this new packaging is a great step forward in reaching their sustainable goals and making the planet a much greener place.
