为环保,雪碧选择透明!9月起放弃绿色瓶子

发布时间:2019-06-28 点击数:9

今年9月,雪碧将放弃其标志性的绿色瓶子,转而使用更容易回收的透明塑料包装。该饮料的制造商可口可乐宣布,将在近60年来首次改用透明塑料雪碧瓶。

雪碧所有的瓶子目前都是100%可回收的,但通过机械回收——这是最普遍的回收方法——将一个绿色的瓶子回收成一个透明的瓶子更加困难。

不仅仅是塑料瓶在改变——玻璃雪碧瓶也将变得透明。但是玻璃瓶的改变要到明年才会发生。罐装雪碧也将有一个新的外观与新的品牌标志——但绿色仍然是雪碧品牌的一部分。

自1961年雪碧首次推出以来,58年来雪碧瓶一直是绿色的。这家饮料制造商证实,它不会将新瓶装饮料的成本转嫁给超市,因此消费者的价格应该保持不变,而且瓶子和罐子的尺寸也将保持不变。

不过,更换雪碧瓶子并不是可口可乐减少塑料垃圾的唯一举措。该公司还宣布,到今年年底,可口可乐旗下的功能饮料酷乐仕(GLACEAU)所有的智能水瓶都将100%由回收塑料制成。可口可乐公司表示,这一改变将减少3100吨新塑料流通。

该公司补充称,到2020年初,所有其他塑料瓶使用的可回收塑料的数量将翻一番。雪碧还将在明年将其瓶子中回收塑料的比例提高至50%。这些举措将确保从2020年起,该行业将不再使用逾2.3万吨的新塑料。

可口可乐英国分公司总经理乔恩·伍兹表示:“使用更多可回收塑料是我们可持续包装战略的一个关键因素,因为它减少了我们包装中使用的原始材料的数量。这一切都不容易,我为团队所做的工作感到骄傲,这一举措将确保我们在2020年将所有包装瓶上的PET塑料至少回收50%。”

近年来,大牌公司纷纷“出手限塑”。去年十月,嘉士伯公布计划采用新技术代替传统多罐装产品所使用的塑料拉环。嘉士伯表示这是全球首先应用的一个创新。这家总部位于丹麦的公司将推出一种名为“SNAP PACK”的新技术,用类似于“口香糖”的胶质材料把啤酒罐粘连在一起。该公司表示应用新包装技术后,他们在全球范围内每年可以减少塑料的浪费超过1200吨,相当于减少使用6000万个塑料袋。相比传统的多罐装塑料拉环,新包装等于减少了高达76%的塑料使用。

减少塑料使用方面,星巴克也在发力。同样在去年,这家大型咖啡连锁企业承诺,将在全球2.8万家门店中清除吸管。该公司表示,到2020年,所有冰咖啡、浓缩咖啡和茶饮料都将配上重新设计、便于饮用的盖子。换句话说,顾客将不再需要使用吸管。目前,这种重新设计过的杯盖已经在加拿大和美国的8000多家门店开始使用。

Sprite is ditching its iconic green bottles for the sake of environment protection

Sprite is ditching its iconic green bottles this Septr in a bid to use plastic that"s easier to recycle.

The drink"s manufacturer,Coca-Cola,has announced that it will be switching to clear plastic Sprite bottles for the first time in nearly 60 years.

All of Sprite"s bottles are currently 100 percent recyclable but it"s more difficult to recycle a green bottle into a clear bottle through mechanical recyclingwhich is the most widespread recycling method. And it"s not just the plastic bottles that are changing-glass Sprite bottles will also now also be clear.

But the changes to the glass bottles won"t happen until next year.The cans will also have a new look in line with the new brand identitybut green is very much still part of the Sprite brand.Sprite bottles have been green for 58 years, since the drink first launched in 1961.The drinks manufacturer conirmed that it is not passing the cost of the new bottles onto supermarkets,so prices for shoppers should remain the same.

Bottle and can-sizes will also remain the same.Changing Sprite bottles isn"t the only Coca-Cola initiative to reduce plastic waste though.The company also announced that all GLACéAU Smartwater bottles will be made from 100 percent recycled plastic by the end of the year.Coca-Cola says the changes will remove 3,100 tonnes of new plastic from circulation.

It adds that it is on track to double the amount of recycled plastic used in all other plastic bottles by early 2020.Sprite will also increase the amount of recycled plastic its bottles contain to 50 percent next year.Collectively these initiatives will make sure that more than 23,000 tonnes of new plastic will no longer be used by the business from 2020.

Jon Woods,General Manager of Coca-Cola Great Britain,says:“Using more recycled plastic is a critical element of our sustainable packaging strategy,as it reduces the amount of virgin material used in our packs. None of this is easy and I am proud of the teams"work to ensure we are on track to move to at least 50% recycled PET plastic on all of our bottles in 2020.”

In what Carlsberg describes as a world first,the Danish company will introduce a new“Snap Pack”where cans are bonded together with glue.It claims the new packaging will reduce plastic waste globally by more than 1,200 tons a year-the equivalent of 60 million plastic bags. This represents up to 76% reduction of the amount of plastic used in traditional multi-packs.

Plastic rings,which have been used on multipacks of canned drinks for decades,pose a risk to wildlife and have been heavily linked to increased ocean pollution.There have been growing calls to eliminate single-use plastics across the business world,with ocean plastic waste predicted to triple by 2050.

Not only Carlsberg,Starbucks has promised to do more in environmental protection.The giant coffee chain has promised to eliminate straws from all of its 28,000 stores worldwide. By 2020,it says that all iced coffee,espresso,and tea beverages will come with strawless lids,remodelled for easy sipping. This special lid is already available at more than 8,000 stores in Canada and the U.S. For thick blended beverages like the Frappuccino,paper or compostable straws will be distributed to any patrons who need them.
