To ring in World Environment Day, the Coca-Cola company in Hong Kong is working with the City Plaza to launch a ‘Recycle Bar’ which will help demonstrate that recycled PET bottles can be given new life.

Polyethylene terephthalate, better known as PET, is a type of plastic that is 100% recyclable but maintains the strength and lightweight feel of regular plastic.

The Recycle Bar in Hong Kong consists of over 30 pieces of furniture that are made from 18,000 plastic bottles through 3D-printing. This furniture, such as bar counters, stools, tables, and chairs, were all locally produced and after the pop-up Recycle Bar closes, the furniture will be reused at a Recycling Academy experience center.
