Vinyl copies of Coldplay’s new album will be made from recycled bottles

Each vinyl copy of the album will contain nine recycled PET-plastic bottles that have been recovered from post-consumer waste, which it is claimed will prevent the manufacture of more than 25 metric tons of virgin plastic, while providing an 85% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to traditional 140g vinyl.  CD editions of the record will be the first in the world to be released on ‘EcoCD’, created from 90% recycled polycarbonate, sourced from post-consumer waste streams.
