What actions does SodaStream take to promote environmental sustainability and awareness in the flavour bottles?

As part of SodaStream's commitment to promoting sustainable business practices, we put the planet at the very center of our business model, striving to eliminate single-use plastic waste.

We believe in protecting our products and the planet and consider the environmental impact of single components in our designs.

Today, we are investing robust resources to transition our flavors from white plastic packaging to transparent 100% recycled (rPET) bottles, and transition sleeves from PVC to CPET across all our markets.

 

What is the advantage of the new recycled bottle (rPET)?

It is fully sustainable and recyclable. In fact, it is made from materials that have been recycled, mainly PET food packaging, and that have been thrown into their corresponding container.

Did you know?

  • A single ton of recycled plastic saves (approximately) 23 cubic meters of space in a landfill.
  • Recycling just one plastic bottle saves enough energy to power a 60W light bulb for six hours.
  • As of 2025, the regulation will not allow entering into EU plastic bottles if it is not contained at least 25% RPET, by 2030- it will increase to 30%.
What will happen to the current unrecycled flavor bottles that were not sold yet?

With the transition to bottles made from recycled materials, we do not intend to scrap the already existing bottles, but we will be replacing them in time on the production line.

Note: The existing plastic bottles can be recycled after removing the sleeve, but are not made of recycled materials.

Are you planning to replace the cap & label of the flavor bottles with recyclable plastic as well?

The Cap is already made of HDPE and will not be replaced. The sleeve will be replaced with CPET material, which contains 30% rPET and 70% GPET vs PVC (current material).

Will the new recycled bottle effect the price of the flavours sold?

No! The change in recycled bottles will not affect the price for the consumers.
