Watch: Coca-Cola tackles waste

Coca-Cola commits themselves to their dedicated initiatives driven toward effective waste management. From their reusable packaging to their clean-up initiatives, the beverage industry forerunner places a strong emphasis on being sustainably conscious.

"We've incentivised our consumers to return the bottles to the point of purchase through a redeemable deposit scheme. We then collect those bottles from our retailers to return them to our bottling plants where they go through stringent processes including a very strict bottle washing process, before they are refilled,"
Theron Govender, Technical Operations Director for Coca-Cola Africa

This process allows their business to reuse bottles up to 20 times. Watch the video below for more information on how Coca-Cola sustainability experts are tackling waste management through their initiatives.
