PET plastic bottles are a popular choice for packaging soft drinks because they provide numerous benefits to manufacturers and consumers.
Today, 70% of soft drinks (carbonated drinks, still and dilutable drinks, juices, and bottled water) are packaged in PET plastic bottles-the rest are mainly packaged in glass bottles, metal cans, and cartons.
However, despite the benefits of using PET plastic, there are still many misunderstandings about plastic bottles. This fact sheet aims to correct some of these
Benefits of PET Honey Bottles
Lightweight: cost-effective production and less energy required for transportation
Safety: if it is broken or damaged, do not crush and cause danger
Convenience: Because they are safe and light, they are also convenient for consumption on the go
Resealable: suitable for multiple packaging
Recyclable: recyclable, making PET reusable
Sustainable development: More and more PET plastic bottles are made from recycled PET
Unique: Can be molded into different shapes, enabling brands to use them to establish identity and promote beverages
Flexible: Manufacturers can switch from one bottle shape or size to another bottle shape or size, which means high efficiency, and Small Plastic Juice Bottles is also proof.
Recycling: All PET plastic bottles can be recycled. Recoup's "2014 UK Household Plastic Collection Survey" confirmed that nearly 60% of PET plastic bottles in household waste streams are now collected for recycling-in 2001 this figure was only 3%. Major soft drink manufacturers have also signed the Courtauld Pledge, which is a three-phase voluntary agreement with WRAP. The third phase was launched in May 2013 and focused more on finding opportunities to reduce the carbon impact of packaging, while the first two phases focused on reducing packaging and packaging weight.
Through innovation, the industry is continuously improving its environmental record. PET plastic bottles have been redesigned to be 30% lighter than 15 years ago, and more and more recycled plastic is used to make the bottles themselves. The industry also cooperates with organizations such as RECOUP to further innovate the design of PET plastic bottles.
We all need to ensure that recycling rates continue to grow, and the soft drink industry urges people to recycle their plastic bottles instead of throwing them away as trash. Need to solve the problem of the growth of garbage, the industry fully supports the public campaign against littering and sponsored a series of mobile recycling programs to help people dispose of empty bottles responsibly.
