Mount Franklin announce 100 per cent recycled plastic bottles in Australia

Mount Franklin has announced its single-serve bottles of still Australian spring water are now made from 100 per cent recycled plastic.

The announcement was part of Coca-Cola Amatil’s aspiration to achieve packaging neutrality by 2030 by helping recover the equivalent of one bottle or can for each one they sell.

“100 per cent recycled plastic has a small environmental impact compared to other packaging types,” said Gaelle Boutellier, Coca-Cola Amatil’s director of strategy and marketing.

“Mount Franklin is very aware that plastic is an issue for the environment and one that the brand has a responsibility to tackle.

“We’re proud to say our Mount Franklin Still 350ml, 400ml, 500ml and 600ml bottles are now made from 100 per cent recycled plastic, with a goal to move more of the portfolio to 100 per cent recycled plastic in the future.

“We’re calling on Aussies to keep recycling bottles and cans, so they can be reused again and again.”

Mount Franklin has also recently partnered with not-for-profit Keep Australia Beautiful to educate, inspire and take action to enable better recycling opportunities for Australians.
