Club Cool Will Use Flooring Made From Recycled Bottles and Labels

Oh boy! We have an update on Club Cool returning to Epcot and it’s about the floors.  Yep, that’s the update, flooring.

All joking aside, it is kind of cool (intended) that they will be using flooring made from recycled bottles and even red Coke labels. Imagineer Zach Riddley posted about it on his Instagram account.

With the photo comes a long explanation about the floors. I transcribed the post below:

Today is National Have a Coke Day – and to celebrate I’m sharing a few design details about our entirely new Club Cool hosted by Coca-Cola experience coming to EPCOT this summer.

A cool design feature will be a totally custom floor. We carefully selected colors and aggregates to create three unique terrazzo finishes for the new Club Cool.

Terrazzo is a type of poured floor that is known for its style and flexibility, giving our Imagineers a chance to pick unique colors and textures that feel like EPCOT.

And get this – we are bringing pieces of Coca-Cola products into the materials of the floor itself!! This terrazzo will incorporate recycled Coca-Cola green glass chips that will capture light and bring the color and connection underfoot.

And if you look closely you can even see the remnants of the red bottle labels within the flooring material!

This terrazzo is also distinctive in that it uses a natural binder, made up of biodegradable materials. These beautiful floor finishes not only create a branded aesthetic for Club Cool, but further emphasizes both Disney and Coca-Cola’s commitment to sustainability and protecting our environment – perfectly fitting in EPCOT.

I really like that they are using recycled bottle parts into the flooring. But the big question is, will this Terrazzo flooring still get sticky?  I’m betting it will, but would it really be Club Cool if it didn’t have the sticky floor?

I’m mostly kidding, but I really am glad we’re getting it back this summer!
