caca cola = the pitome of JUNK; devoid of any nutritional value; harmful to and degrading humans; a WMD; no amount of attempted greenWASHING can help that.

Good idea, they should start it all over the planet - we don't really drink Coke but all the youngsters do and the number of empty bottles we end up with, never fails to amaze me. I've converted them into garden bird feeders and extra watering 'pods' but just cannot keep up!

As the number one soft drink on the planet, I'm glad to read Coke has decided to take some environmental responsibility.

How about loosening up with your billions to settle with the abuses you have caused your employees.

Coke should be banned altogether - it dissolves metal

I'm no fan of Coca Cola but I do like this action. At least in this instance trash will be kept out of landfills. they have a long way to go though.

Coca Cola routinely hires death squads around the world to intimidate workers and to silence their leaders. Coca Cola ruins entire regions by depleting the available drinking water just to make their product. If you are drinking a coke, then you are participating in GENOCIDE. Pepsi is no different.

I don't trust Coca Cola. Once I've seen them throwing away perfectly good office chairs (red colored with the logo), and when I contacted them about the chairs they said it was a "misunderstanding; no chair was thrown away". But I know what I saw with my very own eyes !! They don't care about "health" and "environment".

Why should this only happen in London. This garbage is everywhere.
