“As Australia’s biggest beverage company, we have a responsibility to help solve the plastic waste crisis. That is why we will make 70 percent of our plastic bottles entirely from recycled plastic by the end of 2019,” Vamsi Mohan Thati, president of CCA subsidiary Coca-Cola Australia, said in a statement.

Thati said it is “a big commitment to recycled plastic — the largest of its kind by a beverage company in Australia — and will significantly reduce the impact of our business on the environment. Coca-Cola’s goal is to keep plastic packaging out of our oceans and landfills and instead be used over and over again.”

IF 70% of bottles are made of 100% recycled material that would be a huge step for Coke.
