Coca-Cola Remains Loyal to Single-use Plastic Bottles

SEATTLE (Waste 360): At the 2020 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Coca-Cola reportedly said it would stand by its single-use plastic bottle to “accommodate consumers.”

Reports note that the company’s head of sustainability, Beatriz Perez, told BBC: “Business won’t be in business if we don’t accommodate consumers. So, as we change our bottling infrastructure, move into recycling and innovate, we also have to show the consumer what the opportunities are. They will change with us.”
