Laying the groundwork for a sustainable future is important to us all, especially in the beverage industry where millions of single-use plastic bottles are produced and uses a considerable amount of energy to do it.
CO2Sustain can make a difference to your carbon footprint, reduce your plastic usage, and limit water consumption through our various benefits.
Producing soda uses a lot of water – for every single 1L bottle produced, approximately 1.7 litres of water is used.
In addition to the water used in the recipe itself (carbonated beverages typically contain more than 90% water), it is used for cooling, cleaning, and manufacturing packaging among many other things.
Operating beverage manufacturing facilities, storing finished products, distribution, and managing growing businesses consumes a lot of energy.
The average weight of a 2-litre PET preform bottle is 42g: successful brands and bottlers can expect to turn out billions of litres-worth of beverages every year which adds up to a significant amount of plastic usage!
