Coca-Cola Vows to Be Water Neutral

Water is the next oil, according to many experts, and by the looks of the big business it’s drawing, those experts are right. As reported by Charles Fishman in his article, “Why GE, Coca-Cola, and IBM Are Getting Into the Water Business“, from April’s edition of Fast Company, “Coca-Cola’s CEO has vowed that Coke will become the first ‘water neutral’ global corporation.”

For now, every liter of Coke that is manufactured, 2.43 liters of water are required.

I’m curious to see if he makes his goal and what that will mean for the corporate world’s water usage.

2+ litres of water, to make one litre of poison...hmmm! How about all the water that is used in the manufacturing of the PLASTIC bottle used for the poison?

For the sake of the planet, maybe it is time to shut down all soda manufacturers. To use over 2 liters of water to make one liter of this shit is very wrong for all living things, especially when there are so many that go without clean water. Then there are the plastic bottles ...
No private company should be able to waste water in such an unnecessary way, or buy water rights. Water belongs to the people.

Sorry for them but i for one will NEVER EVER BUY ANOTHER coke product again as a stance against the company. I read labels and I vote with my wallet and feet. Oh and seriously do you believe them when they say what they will do to water and will it be pure unadulterated water.>.. I dont know but I for one wont be buying it b/c of their dubious track record
