Coke with no straws attached
Coca-Cola Amatil Australia has heard the community message loud and clear and have announced it will no longer distribute plastic drinking straws or stirrers in Australia. Distribution of these old single-use products will cease as stocks run out over the next two months and be replaced with new sustainable paper straws. The sustainable drinking straw will be available in February.
Coca-Cola Amatil say they are serious in playing a part in reducing the amount of unnecessary plastic packaging that enter our litter streams, environment and oceans. Their intention is to be fully recyclable by 2025, including all bottles, cans, plastic wraps, straws, glass and cardboard.
