The 89oz Simply Beverages package is the first commercial application of Indorama Ventures PolyClear 5507 material, a new Association of Plastics Recyclers compliant grade of Extrudable Polyethylene Terephthalate. This now allows the package to carry the resin code#1 symbol, communicating its compatibility with the PET recycle stream. 

Indorama-5507 was developed and commercialized through close collaboration between The Coca-Cola Company, Indorama Ventures and CKS Packaging. This collaboration not only enabled a conversion from a resin code#7 material, it also enabled a container weight reduction of 9% while maintaining the high quality and performance standards of the Simply brand.
