Coca-Cola Launches TV Campaign To Promote Its 100% Recycled Plastic Bottles Via Ogilvy

COCA-COLA has today launched the new Coca-Cola No Sugar in Australia after years of research to create the best tasting sugar-free Coke ever. Coca-Cola No Sugar has been designed to taste as similar to the original Coca-Cola Classic as possible –  and will become a new permanent member of the Coca-Cola family. Available nationally from June 16 2017, the company will give away more than two million free samples to mark the launch.

Coca-Cola Australia has today launched a major marketing campaign to thank Australians for recycling.

It follows the announcement earlier this year that 7 out of 10 of Coca-Cola’s range of drink bottles in Australia will be 100 per cent recycled plastic by the end of 2019.

The comprehensive campaign will be led by a new TV commercial premiering this Sunday.

Watch the commercial below:

It aims to build awareness of Coca-Cola’s move to recycled plastic and its commitment to reduce waste and help solve Australia’s packaging problem.

In April the company announced its largest ever investment in recycled plastic for drink bottles.

The move means that all their plastic bottles, 600ml and under, will be made from 100 per cent recycled plastic by the end of the year.

100% recycled plastic Coca-Cola Classic bottle

This includes all brands from Coca-Cola, Fanta and Sprite to Powerade, Pump and Mount Franklin.

The change also means that Australia will be the first country in the world where all Coca-Cola Classic bottles, 600ml and under, will be made from 100 per cent recycled plastic on an ongoing basis.

Coca-Cola Australia’s director for sustainability, Christine Black said: “We are the largest drinks company in Australia and we have a responsibility to help solve the packaging problem.

“Coca-Cola in Australia has made a significant commitment to investing in recycled plastic but there is more to do.

“Australians help every time they recycle a drink bottle.”

Black continued: “We want to see a strong, viable recycling industry in Australia and we can play our part by encouraging Australians to recycle and then to use recycled plastic in our bottles wherever we can.

“By recycling as often as possible, Australians can help us to use recycled plastic in our bottles.

“When a company as large as Coca-Cola combines our marketing expertise to encourage recycling with a commitment to using recycled plastic, our plastic bottles can become bottles again and again.”

The new Coca-Cola commercial to be screened on TV, cinema and online video was produced locally and will be supported by a wider campaign featuring recycling messages on bottles and lids, out-of-home advertising and recycling activities at the Sydney Cricket Ground at three upcoming games.

The animated commercial features a lady bird on a mission to lift an empty Coke bottle into a recycling bin.

She can’t do it alone and is soon helped by an army of ants.

The ad ends with the message: “With a little help, we can make a big change.

“Our bottles are now made from 100 per cent recycled plastic. Thanks for recycling!”.
