Coca-Cola bottle with new cap

A slogan has been added to the new caps of single-use PET Coca-Cola bottles in Germany, requesting that consumers ‘leave them on’. The caps are tethered to the safety ring on the necks of the bottles.

In November 2021, Coca-Cola Germany introduced new caps for its single-use PET bottles. The caps are tethered to a safety ring on the necks of the bottles.

A Coca-Cola bottle is being entered into a reverse vending machine.

The new caps will not change the way consumers dispose of them: beverage bottles can still be returned via reverse vending machines.
