The Carolinas Plastics Recycling Council (CPRC) and the National Association for PET Container Resources (NAPCOR) announced today the release of a jointly produced “Your Bottles Means Jobs (YBMJ)” video. The focused, two-minute video tallies the 3,500 jobs in plastics bottle recycling and related fields in the Carolinas, including bottle sorting, recycled material processing, and manufacturing of recycled-content products such as polyester fiber made from recycled PET bottles.
Coca-Cola is working to close the loop in St. Louis and help clean up the Mississippi River. In a first for both The Company and Living Lands and Waters, Coca-Cola piloted a “closed-loop” system – from volunteering to collect recyclables and other debris along the Mississippi River, to sorting the materials so they can be recycled into new items including new Coca-Cola plastic bottles.
A team of Coca-Cola Heartland associates joined other volunteers to collect and sort 14,480 pounds of debris – 63 percent (9,160 pounds) of which was diverted from the landfill for recycling. Coca-Cola then partnered with Phoenix Technologies to convert the plastic bottles into recycled PET plastic which is being used in new Coca-Cola bottles that are hitting store shelves throughout the month of July.
