Coca-Cola Oceania and Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Fiji has announced that their plastic PET bottles which are smaller than one litre are now made from 100% recycled plastic.

He says packing waste is undoubtedly a major challenge and is also a solvable one if we take action.

Hare says the move to substantially increase the use of recycled plastic in their packing means they will avoid using over 300 tonnes of virgin plastic in their bottles compared to 2021.

Meanwhile, Coca-Cola and Mission Pacific have also launched their โ€œTurn Your Drink Cans & Bottles into Cash Programโ€.

This initiative will allow people, and even schools to earn 5 cents per can or bottle when they recycle any Coca-Cola, Fiji Water or Sprint bottles or cans.
