Tell Coca-Cola North America:

“The global Brand Audit conducted by the #breakfreefromplastic movement in 2018 revealed that Coca-Cola is the largest contributor to plastic pollution. Given the scale and consequences of the plastic crisis, you have a responsibility to reduce your plastic footprint. We know that bottle deposits can significantly reduce your plastic footprint, and have received Coca-Cola's support in Europe. We’re urging you to support the policy in the US too.

    Coca-Cola sells over 100 billion plastic bottles each year. It's time for Coke to take responsibility for its contribution to plastic pollution!

    Coke uses 3 million tonnes of plastic in its packaging every year. Where is all that plastic ending up? Our data shows that a huge volume of Coca-Cola brand plastic bottles are ending up in the environment. Luckily, there's a fix that can change this story.

    Coke’s plastic bottles are made of PET, one of the few plastics that are widely recyclable as long as they’re captured. A deposit on bottles can incentivize their return and virtually eliminating littered bottles -- Norway and Germany recycle over 97% with the system. So why is Coca-Cola lobbying against this proven solution in the US?

    Coca-Cola loves to talk about their commitment to helping end plastic pollution. So why don't their actions match their words? Right now, Coca-Cola is blocking solutions to the plastic crisis. Let's bring them to the table and get them on the right side of history.
