More than 100 million soft drink bottles each year to switch to 100% recycled plastic

Around 111 million soft drink bottles will now be made with 100% recycled plastic in Australia each year as Asahi Beverages continues its transition to eco-friendly materials.

The change will apply to all 450ml and 600ml bottles of soft drinks sold by Asahi Beverages including popular brands Pepsi Max, Solo, Schweppes and Sunkist.

The move follows Asahi Beverages’ bottled water brands Cool Ridge Still Water and Frantelle’s, which have been sold in 100% recycled PET for several years. It brings the total number of 100% recycled plastic bottles produced by Asahi Beverages to more than 640 million each year.
