The Coca‑Cola Company Launches 100% Recycled Plastic Bottles* Across Canada

CPP Roadmap Target #2 & 3

The Circular Solution 

All 500-mL sparkling beverages bottles sold by The Coca‑Cola Company in Canada will be made with 100% recycled plastic* (*excluding caps and labels) by early 2024. The company is the first to launch multiple sparkling beverages in 100% recycled plastic bottles* across Canada.

Bottles made with 100% recycled plastic* create and sustain a circular economy for plastic packaging. Once the material (PET) is recycled, it is cleaned, sorted and ground into small flakes that become raw material for more new bottles. To build awareness and encourage consumers to continue recycling bottles, all 100% recycled plastic bottles* will feature “Recycle Me Again” messaging.


The shift supports The Coca‑Cola Company’s World Without Waste goals to use at least 50% recycled content in its packaging by 2030, and to reduce use of virgin plastic. It’s projected to save 7.6 million pounds of new plastic in 2024 alone, as well as reduce nearly 7,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually, which is the equivalent of taking nearly 1,500 cars off the road for one year.

Next Steps

The new 100% recycled plastic bottles* will be produced by Coke Canada Bottling at its Brampton, O.N., Calgary, A.B., Lachine, Q.C., and Richmond, B.C., manufacturing facilities.

The company is working to make all its packaging more sustainable, including maximizing its use of renewable and recycled content while minimizing its use of virgin material. Its goal is to create closed-loop systems by extracting the maximum value from packaging materials and products while in use, then preventing them from becoming waste through recovery, recycling, and reuse.
