Coca-Cola sells more than 100bn single-use plastic bottles a year. Its plans to increase recycled plastic in its bottles to 50% are startlingly unambitious

They are so full of PR fizz, if they really cared they would have a cash refund on the bottles!

Good afternoon and thank you for this article - which i read and noted- I agree- coke should have all recycle bottles only - to cut down on plastic being dumped into the ocean- it could be used to make new products- ALL CONSUMERS CAN PRESSURE COKE TO CHANGE OR WE WILL BOYCOTT THEM TILL THEY DO--- sincerely KAY M.

Noted, Shared and Pinned !! As huge as a Corp as "COKE" is this is UNACCEPTABLE !!!! Go back to Glass and do the Cash Deposits just like the "OLD DAYS" and DO AWAY with "ALL" this Plastic Garbage Completely !!!! PLASTIC ruins the "TASTE" of Everything and then POLLUTES Our Earth and KILLS the Marine Life ...... "WOW", Way to Go ????

We are living in a plastic world - pathetic that Coke, as well as others Only care for profit. I don't drink Any kind of pop and have Always despised plastic. Don't hold your breath for a quick resolve, friends. We must be the change to ensure our planet continues to survive with less dependency from the very ones that are causing so very much of a mess.
