Coca-Cola Renews Partnership With Ecoist Handbag Maker


Ecoist, a handbag producer, has renewed its collection of women’s bags made from the labels from Coca-Cola beverage bottles.

The limited edition collection uses Diet Coke, Coke Zero and Diet Cherry Coke labels to make a variety of bags in different sizes and styles.

Ecoist first formed a partnership with Coca-Cola in 2007 and, since this date, over one million labels have been recycled.

The partnership has also led to more than 5,000 trees being planted through a programme called Buy a Bag, Plant a Tree.

Kelli Sogar, Coca-Cola’s global business development manager for licensing, said: “Continuing and expanding our partnership with Ecoist allows Coke’s global scale to truly impact up-cycling in a meaningful, holistic way.”

All of the beverage labels used in the handbags are are cut, folded and stitched together by hand in Peru.

As part of Coca-Cola’s commitment to becoming a more eco-friendly company, it announced earlier this year that all of its new vending machines and coolers are to be hydrofluorocarbon-free by 2015.
