Co-op tones down milk bottle tops to boost recyclability 2012-06-01 - No Comments

The Co-operative Food sells about 202 million bottles of milk per year. The tap is coloured and therefore, the amount of recycled material was limited.

Now, the Co-operative has voluntary reduced the amount of tint in its plastic coloured milk bottle. Through this measure, the retailer will increase the recycle content of plastic milk bottles from 10% to 30% which is translated into an increase of 4.500 tonnes/year of recyclable material.

WRAP affirms that this measure is a “quick win” given that it allows a higher achievement of recycled content in milk bottles and consequently, it is a great step in reducing the use of virgin plastic. The environmental manager of the retailer is proud of being the first UK retailer to implement this measure in all of its own-brand milk bottles.
